All Dogs Go To Heaven



Sympathy cards are not my favorite thing to make.  Understandably so as that means something sad has occurred.  But I wanted to give a bit of comfort to my mom for the loss of their dog, Odin.  I knew Mo Manning's image Angel with Puppy would be perfect.  I colored her with Copics and used the current layout from Sketch n Stash (#97).  She is layered on top of a mat cut with Labels Nine Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  A bit of Crystal Stickles adorns her wings. Papers are DCWV The Pets Stack.   I added some flowers, bling, and a metal corner.  The sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set and was cut out with one of the Grommet Tags dies, also from Spellbinders.  I happened to have the Good Dog license tag (a Jolees sticker) in my stash.




Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, E04, E34, E37, E39, E27, B00, B02).

Challenges:
- Crafts and Me: #104-My Sentiments Exactly 
- Anything Goes Challenge: #77-Animals 

Surprisingly, she is already talking about getting a puppy.  My parents have always been dog people and ever since I was little we've had 4-legged family members.  Each one loved like no other.  I have a sneaking suspicion, though, that my small man has something to do with the desire to acquire a new pet so soon.  I know he will be delighted and I hope that it brightens my mom's spirits too.  

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a fabulous week so far!
