So sorry for the loss of your furry friend

My Best Friend's Mother lost her dog the other day, so I made this card for her.  Her Mother is 87 years old and now she is so depressed because she is at that age where she wants a companion, but is afraid to have another critter in case she herself would pass away.  For this card I embossed some pawprints in the cardstock as well.

Cardstock:  Bazzil; Core-dinations; Recollections
Stamp:  Newton's Nook Furrever Friend
Ink:  Distress - Stormy Sky,  Brushed Corduroy, Rusty Hinge
Divine Twine
Gems:  Paper Studio
Embossing Folder:  Darice

AW! how sad, awful at anytime of life but when you are this lady's age, so much worse. I'm sure she will be thankful for your thoughtfulness with this lovely card.

A sad story - perhaps she could volunteer at a dog's shelter? If not, they often have older dogs which need care too. Great card. Thanks for sharing it with us at Crafting with Dragonflies.

Very sad when you lose a pet-we have quite a few animals now and have lost a few too but one in particular still upsets me even after nearly thirty years!!!I love your beautiful card

Awww that is so sad, it's hard loosing our fur babies, it creates a emptiness inside, and sounds like her fur baby was her companion, and they must have been very close. Too bad she couldn't adopt a senior dog, prayers for her!
And a beautiful and sweet card you have made, she will love it! Thank you for joining us at Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge this week!
Hugs Cheryl
