Good Monday morning. My name is Mary and I am, apparently, a stamping addict! I’m on a one-day business trip, changed time zones, drove half the day. Before I left the house this morning, I made sure I had my card to reference to post this post, my Cottage Greetings stamp set, my Cottage Greetings card kit, my Delightful Dijon, Basic Gray and Tuxedo Black Inks, my bone folder, SNAIL, Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, craft ruler, SU! Paper Snips, and the “recipe” for my card.
Oh – and a few clothes for my meeting tomorrow!
I even remembered my make-up. Don’t laugh – I went on a trip once – where I didn’t wear makeup on the airplane cause I was being pure lazy, and so I left my make-up bag in the second drawer in the bathroom. Forgot earrings, too. Had to make a mad dash to Target!! 😉 Since I drove to this meeting – I didn’t wear makeup today, either. So it’s fortunate that I remembered everything!
Here we go! Sadly, today’s card is going to be headed to my friends who lost their old Lab yesterday. Black Jack – or BJ or just B – went to the Rainbow Bridge at the ripe old age of 14. He was the patriarch of a large family of dogs – several labs, two miniature Doxies and an Australian Shepard. He was a benelolent leader. He was father to several beautiful and coveted litters of hunting Labs. He was a very good boy, and he will be missed. Jan and Ed and the twins (the same young men I’ve mentioned so often here), will miss his grinning face every day, but will carry their memories of him in their hearts. I hope this card will let them know that I share in their sorrow. And surely do understand it completely….
I went with the new Vintage Leaves stamp set and the matching Leaflets Framelits. Which I bought as a 15% off bundle! I paired it with the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, which has so many wonderful sentiments for this purpose. Take a look-see:
