"Fur Baby" Sympathy Cards

Over the summer I have had to make some sympathy cards for friends who have lost their beloved pets.  Sympathy cards, of any kind, are always hard for me to make.  For pet sympathy cards I like to use a picture of their fur baby.  Here are two I made recently.  I always keep them simple with the focus on the animal and so they can use it as a keepsake or in their scrapbook.  

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Birthday Wine Card

Quick share of a card I made for a swap.  I had the image in my colored file with the papers already picked out, so this one went quickly.  The image is Cocktel Denny from Karber Images.  I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils.  I added Rock Candy Distress Stickles to her lips and the wine glass.  All the papers are from my scrapbasket.  For a little sparkle I added the rhinestone corners from Recollections at Michael's. Thanks for stopping by!  Marie

So I have not blogged in a couple weeks because, once again, life has got in the way.  I recently, like this is day 8, went back to work.  Now, after not working outside of the home for 15+ years this has been quite an adjustment....for EVERYONE.  With it being summer break it is a little more challenging.  I am hoping once school starts back up we will find our groove.  I do like the job...for now.  It is a job to get me back into the workforce.  It is for a non profit, so the pay is a little lower than average for this area, but...it is literally 5 minutes from my house...no getting into DC traffic, so it is worth it.  I also celebrated my birthday on the 7th....and the 8th...and the 10th :)  I received several bouquets of flowers, two fun crafty gift boxes, yummy treats, lovely blouse for my new job, and a new Pandora charm to honor my father.  My husband and I went to dinner and a play, actually a musical love story...he is such a good hubby :)  Jarek and I had a great day shopping, lunching, and just hanging out.  All in all it was a lovely birthday weekend.
So, I did get to craft some this weekend and will share those things later.  Hope you are having a GREAT week!
