Pawprints on your Heart

I can't believe my baby brother is getting married today!  Where does the time go?  I am all dolled up, hair and make-up done, and waiting to get dressed so I thought I'd do a quick blog post.  I have a card to show you (I'll share the happy couple's wedding card tomorrow).  This one is a sympathy card for a friend who lost her cat this week.  Pets leave pawprints on our heart, and she is missing this much-loved furry member of her family.  I used Mo's Digital Pencil Angel with Kitten image which I think is a beautiful tribute for the loss of a beloved pet .  I colored her with Copics and cut her out with Spellbinders Classic Circles Nestabilities.  The doily is French Pastry from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I added metal corners, half pearls, and flowers.  Paper is My Mind's Eye - Bramble Rose.



Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E31, E23, E79, R20, N4, N6, N8, BG10, BG13).

Today's Blog Every Day in May theme is Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad).

I think the thing that has stuck with me is something a college professor told me when I was still in junior high.  My friend's mother took some samples of my creative writing to one of her professors.  This professor was kind enough to read my work and provide some constructive criticism.  I remember seeing the words "possibly quite talented" in her comments.  The glow from that compliment helped encourage me to continue writing and to pursue my interest in broadcasting.  Teachers are so instrumental in molding young minds and I wish I could thank this one for her encouragement!

Okay, well, it's time to start getting ready!  T-minus 2 hours to wedding time!

I agree. I still remember the things teachers told me back hen I was at school. They are so much more influential in children's lives than we realize.

Beautiful card Regan. I love Mo's images. Your coloring is beautiful and so is the layout or sketch.
