With Sympathy...

My dear neighbor recently lost one of her beautiful, furry friends.  A gorgeous fawn Great Dane by the name of Zsa Zsa.  She was a sweet and gentle soul of 8 years and we're all so sad at her passing.  The loss of a pet can be so devastating and I wanted to let her know how sorry we were.  I had the perfect MFT (older) stamp to create a sympathy card for her. 
I used the sketch from a couple of weeks ago to inspire me. 
I dusted off my Copics (yes - they have been sitting dormant for about a year) and dove in!  It took me about 8 days from start to finish to complete this card.  Having a six month old (plus 2 older kiddies) leaves very little time for crafty fun but I just kept chipping away at it slowly.  I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Ink and colored it in.  I kept everything VERY simple and easy.  I did, however, also dust my sewing machine off and put that back into action for the heart and perimeter of the main panel.  I used my deliciously fun Prismacolor pencils to create the grass and some fun paper strips for the little flags. 
I used my favorite and always reliable Signo Uniball white gel pen for the faux stitching on the outside of my panels.  The scallop was created using MFT's Wonky Scallop Die-namics and the heart is from the Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics

My almost 9 year old daughter also created a BEAUTIFUL card to share:
So sweet and I loved her 3-D flower stickers!! 

I hope you all have a wonderfully crafty day!!  Until next time my friends!!!

Crafty Hugs!
