Hi, friends. I have a card for a sad occasion today. My neighbors recently had to put down their boxer as she was very ill. They are heartbroken :( I envisioned making them something clean, simple and serene and this is what I came up with. I must confess I struggled with this card. I used a brand new juicy Versafine ink pad, and I suppose I should have given it a bit of time to dry because I smudged the dog. NP, I stamped another one. This time a gnat landed on my card, and when I attemped to brush it off I accidentally smooshed it right in the middle of my white space. Ugh! So this is the third and final attempt.
With my retro style stamps, I'm participating in the challenges at Retro Sketches and Retro Rubber. The Dog stamp set was something I purchased at Papyrus in Manhattan last year when my husband had knee replacement surgery, and I've had Teeny Tiny Wishes forever!
