I'd Miss You

Connie, from Riddersholm Design, has some stunning papers - the shabby chic style is right up my creative alley! I've pulled out some from her 'Fleamarket' line to use today.

I got my inspiration for this card from my daughter Hannah, and her darling, wingnut dog, Opie. In my previous post, Hannah washes puppies. This is the blog post I did all about Opie when we decided to adopt her. Since then, if you didn't know she was deaf, you could hardly tell! She is very timid around new people, and when people talk to her, she doesn't respond. Beyond that, she is a fantastic dog! We regularly work on her training and she does insist on getting up at 6am to Tigger bounce into the new day, every day!

This Bronte Kisses image is perfect both for Hannah with Opie and for the sentiment. I coloured it using my sorely neglected copic markers; E0000/00/01/08/09/11/13/17/18/24/27/97/99, YR24/27, V91/93/95, R85, B00/14/16/18, T0/1/3, W00/0/1/3/4, colourless blender.

This sentiment printed on the Fleamarket paper was just too perfect for this card to pass up! I think it is now one of my favourite sentiments ever.

I hand cut this little arrow and dolled it up with a few adhesive jewels. Not bad for a hand made embellishment!!

Finally, I used some gingham ribbon and thin twine for the bow, both from Riddersholm Design.

Happy Canada Day!!
