Today's card is one of those cards that you hate to have to make.  My sister-in-law's family lost their family pet unexpectedly and prematurely.  He went outside in the snow and then stood there, like he had lost his way.  They took him to the vet who sent him to a cardiologist. He had a bleeding tumor in his heart.  What started as a beautiful snowy day ended in heartache.  Zakk died.

So this is my tribute to Zakk for his family.  He was a big ol' boy, a great lab, and the boss.

I used SU! So Saffron and DCWV cardstock.  Patterned paper came from my "doggie stuff" drawer, as did the rub-on on saying.  Brads, eyelets and metal letters came from my stash from my old (and short-lived) scrapbooking days.   I used an Ellison die for the heart and nestabilities for the scalloped circle.  Zakk is embossed using chocolate bliss scented Gelly Powder.  I drew the pad that Zakk is lying on using Copics.  The lab stamp is from Rubber Stamps of America.

Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge, rest easy Zakk.
