Giddy up for Papertake Weekly, and Basil

sugar-nellie-giddy-up1 This card has taken me ages to make, yet it's such a fab sketch by the fabulously talented Dawny for Papertake Weekly. This is the first time this cute little stamp has seen ink - can you believe it!! Jill from The Hobby House sent me these fab screw head brads which I have been itching to use and I think they work brill with the card, not too masculine with the flowers (I hope!!). The papers are out of my scraps drawer - I wish I knew who the maker was, can't remember where or when I got them (I'm hopeless)

Another view of the card, I've not got one of the inside - the light was so bad that I could not get a decent pic even with the light tent.

I also mentioned yesterday that it was a horrible day, today is not much better. Yesterday I took Basil (my old boy) to the vet as he had not been well for a few weeks. When I took him to the vet 2 weeks ago he diagnosed a bad back but no way was my old man so poorly from a bad back. Anyway to cut a long story short he was diagnosed with the untreatable strain of Cushings Disease and I had to make the heartbreaking decision to have him put to sleep. My heart says he wasn't ready but my head would not let him suffer any longer. He was my first cavalier and the beginning of my love affair with the breed. Sleep tight my little man, mammy misses you so much xxxxx.  This year sucks and I wish it was over!!

  48. First of all: beautiful card, the little cowboy is so darling and when my 2 year old saw it he said "bull hi" which is Hunter talk for Cowboy!
    2nd of all: I am very sorry for your loss. It always sucks when the little people of the family have to go to more wide open spaces... I used to be a pup lover, until I lost my little baby to a very mean red machine driving WAY too quickly. I know how you feel. I am very sorry and all I can say is the pain lessons and you know he is no longer hurting... all my hugs ~Rachel B

  57. I'm sorry that you had to make that decision about Basil. He is a cute-pa-tooty. My heart goes out to you.

    I had to make that decision 2 years ago with my sweet Annabelle, a mini schnauzer. It only took me a couple of weeks to realize I couldn't live in a house without a dog and got a yorkie-poo. She is so much fun and the opposite personality of my Annabelle.

    Blessins to you,

  60. Oh Bev, such another sad post. I really feel for you, I so know how it feels to have to make that decision, it's so hard. Unfortunately, the little ones rely on us to do what's best for them and it's the price we have to pay to have the priviledge of their unconditional love and loyalty.
    Take care

  91. Awwww Bev, I'm soooooo Sorry to hear about Basil. He's such a beautiful dog. I can't even imagine having to make the type of decision. I hope that I never have to. It was the caveliers that I fell in love with about 5 years ago, but couldn't afford it at the time, I ended up with a Cocker, and he is my love, I couldn't imagine my life without him. The pain you must be feeling is so sad. Hang in there Bev.

  102. Oh Bev, I am so sorry to hear about Basil, but I am sure he is resting in peace without pain in Doggie Heaven.

  106. Oh Bev I am sooo sorry to hear about Bazil and so soon after you lost your other little one. We bring them into our homes, love them like one of the family then one day our hearts are broken as we have to face the inevitable. My Lucy was put to sleep 2yrs ago with
    Cushings and Pancreatitis but I couldn't let her suffer like you couldn't let Basil suffer. He had a fab life with you Chuck and that is what you have to focus on but I know it's hard :0(

    ReplyDelete
  107. Oh Bev I can't begin to imagine how you are feeling :(
    Our dog also had cushings disease the vet thinks she had it for about 6 or 7 years but nobody knew, they kept saying it was other things, they gave her pills but then found a huge tumour the size of a bunch of grapes in her lungs and she had to be put to sleep.
    Your other doggie will be up there waiting for him and I bet they will both be looking down on their Mammy together.

  123. Again Bev, my sympathies, I know exactly what you are going through, went through it last week. How you continue to create when your heart has been broken so much recently I don't know. But I bet our Buttons is playing with your Basil and they are complaining about how much time we stamped instead of playing with them....Always in our hearts.
    But I love your card and that stamp. It reminds me of my DD when she was young and rode her stick horse Jingles when she couldn't ride her pony.
