RIP Smokey

Sadly, my son & DIL lost their precious Yorkie "Smokey" over the weekend so I made them a card and dropped it in the mail to help comfort them. I used this adorable image called Yorkie Post from Stamp-n-Doodle. The Cool Caribbean panel was embossed with a CB ef, and I added a SB diecut heart done in soft stone card stock from PTI. The sentiment and pawprint images are also from PTI and were done in Pumice Stone distress and Basic Grey ink. The dog bone clip and cream-colored ribbon are both from my stash. Losing a precious pet is never an easy time, and I know they're going to miss that sweet dog for a long time to come.

I'm also entering this into the September 19th Anything Goes challenge at the Stamp n doodle blog.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Oh Gosh, I can't even image what they are going through right now. If anything will help, it will be this card with that gorgeous face on it. I love the hint of the paw prints on the heart. They will definitely feel the sympathy you have expressed in this card and know that you feel their loss also. Please pass along my heartfelt condolences to them. Yorkies are special "people".

Carol, I saw your little Yorkie and thought it was great you had made a card with that sweet image. Then, I read your post and it made me so sad for your son and DIL. I can just imagine their heartache. I sure hope this precious card gives them a ray of sunshine.
