Saying Goodbye

Its always difficult when we have to say goodbye to loved ones.....especially if they are our pets.

Recently a fellow Crazy Crafter Kate and her family said goodbye to their gorgeous dog. I don't know too much about the story, but it broke my heart when I saw Kates post as I had been through this myself last November when I had to farewell my beloved little man Jackson.

So, to offer some comfort and let them know I was thinking of them all, I made the family this



Whilst I love making cards, these sort are just simply difficult.

Although after making these it made me realise I needed to make a batch of dog and cat cards to donate to my local vets, for them to send to clients who have lost an animal.

For this card I used the Bella and Friends set, stamped the image in Momento Black so I could use the Blends to colour. I used Cherry Cobbler for the Balloon, Crumb Cake for the body and Night of Navy for his collar.
The clouds were die cut using a cloud die from the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and cut in Sparkle Glimmer paper to reflect his trip to Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card today.

Until next time
Hug your fur babies and Happy Stamping!

Using up scraps

Recently I came across these gorgeous cards made by Cindy Schuster, of Netmeg Creations in the U.S.



It is such an amazing way to use up your scrap pieces of card stock...but it would also work with Designer papers too.

Its so simple yet creates such a beautifully bright and cheerful card and you don't need to be a master card maker to make these. Plus they take no time at all.
The hardest part is deciding the colour combo! lol

Here is what I came up with


This card is so versatile!
For starters, you can choose ANY colour combo you want, you are not limited by the colours you use. Come up with any rainbow that makes YOU happy.
Also, it can be for ANY occasion...just change up the sentiment. You can make it a birthday card, thinking of you, get well soon, valentines day, thank you...anything!

My card base is an A4 piece of cardstock, cut at 4" 1/8 portrait, creating two even halves then scored in the middle.
My strips of coloured card stock are 3.5" x 1" each.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my simple card today.
