A memory

I need to take a photo to show you the beauty of nature here on the mountain.  The trees look on fire from the color changes.  Gorgeous!  And the temps are dropping as we speak, as a cold front moves through.  Oh how I love fall!

Tonight I have a sympathy card to share.  My sister-in-law had to put her little pug to sleep.  Anyone that has ever gone through that knows how difficult it is, even when it is the humane thing to do.  Then you have to deal with missing the little guy.

I used a sketch from House That Stamps Built.  The sentiment is from Unity, stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and cut out with Nesties Labels 5.  DP is very old stash (from scrapbooking days) and cs is DCWV.  The pawprint is from an EK Success punch then punched out with 3/4" circle.  Ribbon is from Michaels.  I added Swarovskis for a little bling.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Cards in Envy - Say what? sentiment as focal
LEJ Designs - monochrome
Twist of Faith - in remembrance

Thanks for stopping by!
