Three little bears

First up I just want to thank you all for your lovely, thoughtful comments and emails – I really am overwhelmed by the love shown.  I think we are still shell shocked, I know I can’t take it in and called Sidney in for his tea tonight Sad smile 

My son, who loves the dogs but has always been adamant he would never have one (too tying, too much responsibility, etc) said the sweetest thing yesterday.  He would only ever have a Sidney, he was the perfect little doggie.   Sidders, no-one will ever fill your paws xxx.  Okay get a grip Bev, enough being maudlin!

Today’s card is a happy card, one I made about a month ago so don’t have much of the details for you, sorry.  The gingham is one I made (link to the freebies in my side bar) and the floral paper is from my scrap box (Karen Neuberg springs to mind).  The sweet little stamp is Present Trio from Lili of the Valley’s latest release.  Instead of cutting and mounting the three images separately I stamped them on to a rectangle.  Quite like the effect.

The image was coloured with copics and pencils.  I used E43, 42, 41, 40 for the bears and R83, 81, RV000 for the presents.  The flowers and satin ribbon are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

    There is nothing wrong with feeling sad for a beloved animal sweetie. I wish you weren't hurting but it proves how much you loved him. Take care.
