Owl Always Love You


Just a quick card today.  This is an adaptation of a card I made years and years ago.  I love this little owl, but you could put any critter and there.   I might poke through my sentiments and see if I have any other punny animals ones that would work. 

I used pencils to color this.. but if you wanted to you use copics E44, E43, E15 to get the same look.

A Sad Goodbye

Hello all,  
I try to keep this blog about mostly card stuff.  Today is not about cards.  Sorry... I'll get some of those up soon.    Today's post is about loss of our dog, Willett.   Thank you all for the support and kind words. I know many of you can relate.  There is just something special about how a dog can fill a house.  I'm so glad we still have Widget (her sister).  She is missing Willett too.   My family spent the evening cuddled on the couch watching home videos and sharing stories of Willett.  

 Below is what I posted on Facebook last night.  I have a million memories, but this is what I could squeak out:

Connor wanted to name her Willett because it was his favorite drink. I wanted to name her Willett because I thought it was funny.. "Will it come?" or "Will it sit?" It turned out to be a perfect name for this stubborn little fluff ball. She had the biggest heart and loved with every ounce of her oversized body. She never met anyone that wasn't her best friend. She was always looking for an opportunity to cuddle If your lap was empty, she would fill it. She would take advantage of any opportunity to lick you. If your toes poked out of the bottom of the blanket, she would let you know like she had been waiting all night for it to happen. She lived life with passion and heart. She blessed us each and everyday for 10 years. We loved her for every second of it. We knew our time was limited... but somehow it all happened too fast. She went to heaven today. We are all grieving, but I know we had something special because through all the tears we are laughing and smiling. She gave us that gift; years and years of memories. Love you Willett.

I adore you, Tilda


I have a sweet valentine to share with you today.  I love Tilda stamps.  She is just so sweet.   I struggle with card layout ideas for Tilda stamps.  I worry that all my cards look the same.   I had a tag left over from a Christmas tag project.  I thought it would be fun to see if I could use it on this Tilda card.   I loved how it turned it out.  What do you think?

Copics used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, R20
