Flourished Thanks

I needed a thank you card so I thought this new special edition thank you set from PTI was perfect to use. I also played around with making my own pattern paper using Rosie Posie and broke out the big daisy image which I hadn't stamped yet. I love how easy it is to make gorgeous paper with this set. Over the top of all the stamping I added some small polka dots in Antique Linen distress ink and added a strip of the Filagree border. I kept it flat as it needed to be mail friendly.

Last week was a very hard week with our oldest dog dying and then dog sitting for my mom and her dog getting terribly sick all of a sudden and also passing :( I stayed up all night with my mom's dog trying everything I could to help her and she honestly seemed to be pulling through at about 6:00am and then was gone by 8:00. My parents come home today and though they aren't at all upset with me it will be a little hard as they go home with one less doggie. I am hoping for a calmer week. Hope yours is off to a good start!

Lovely card. Youd did an awesome job with the background stamping. Love the colors. The border die is lovely. So sorry to hear about both your dog & your parents' dog. A horrible week I am sure. Here's hoping that the remainder of 2012 gets better.

Sorry to hear about both of your dogs. You are due for a run of good luck now, I hope. Your card is just lovely. I really like your background paper you made, and the colors you chose.
