My card today uses the Believe stamp set which is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness from Verve. 
Once again, I am making a card based on thoughts of Schmitzy.
I believe he will heal.  I believe he will live.
I believe he will continue to be my DH's best buddy.

I stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa then colored it with 4 shades of pink Copics.  I used my NEW MFT dies for the fishtails, cs is from my stash.  I used a punch for the mini flowers.  Quick and simple!

Schmitzy is a little improved in one area and has developed a new eruption in yet another.  Reading vet blogs about this condition (allergic reaction to an antibiotic) are quite fascinating.  This is a very rare occurence and our poor baby had the misfortune of getting the antibiotic during his exploratory surgery.  The really good news is that he doesn't vomit anymore.

I used the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge #7.

I am also entering the following challenge:

Quirky Crafts - pink and something new (MFT dies)

  4. Your black and white cards are always so stunning with a splash of color. I particularly like the design, and how the little flowers repeat each other on the bottom of the card. Very striking.
