Sympathy Card using Paper Pups

Hello my crafty friends! I am so excited to be a Guest Diva for Die Cuttin' Diva's, one of my favorite blogs!! With such a talented and inspirational Design Team I feel honored to be a part of this weeks challenge. The theme is Anything Goes and I am sharing a card I made for a dear friend. She just lost her dog to cancer and of course it has been a rough time for her and her family. I made her this card to try and cheer her up. 

This pup is from my Paper Pups cartridge and I cut him at 4.0".  Her dog was a big cutie and looked very similar to this one. I used some black pearls for his eyes and glossy accents for his nose. I added the red tongue instead of leaving it brown.  The papers are from the DCWV Pet Stack. I cut the shaped card using my Art Philosophy cartridge at 5.25".  

I used 2 different stamp sets for the sentiments.  "Always in our hearts" is from My Pink Stamper and the inside sentiment is from My Creative Time Stamps.  I fussy cut some hearts and added them to the front and inside.

Be sure to checkout all the fabulous projects made by the DT team and link up your own project to the Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge Blog!

I will participate in the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

  3. Tina, my sweet friend, this card will bring the love and peace that they need during this time. Pets weave such special moments into our daily lives... It is never easy to lose one. You are so thoughtful to do this for them. :) And what a lovely card you made! The design is precious, right down to the paw print-filled hearts. :)

    Also, I want to thank you for the incredibly sweet comment you left me on my blog hop post! You have been a beautiful presence in my crafty life for such a long time.. It is a joy and an honor to call you friend. :) I didn't realize we shared a love of the arts! I'm glad it is still a part of your life, albeit in a different manner. So very happy to have learned a little more about you. :) Have a beautiful week, my friend!

    Hugs and blessings,
    Karen :)

  4. Hi Sis,
