For My Friend

Her dog died suddenly, with no apparent warning that anything was wrong. I know what a hole in the heart those little furry critters leave when they pass. And it keeps hurting for a long time, too....every time you come home and they aren't waiting by the door, tail-waggingly ecstatic to see you.
For some reason, I never can get my husband to greet me that way.

  1. Oh, I need one of these for a friend too. Great card!
    And what are you doing wrong? My hubby greets me at the door this way ;)

  2. Sweet card! Our little dog waits for my hubby to walk in every day - she heads for the door as soon as she hears his car coming down the street! I can tell it makes his day :) Don't even want to think about the day she can't do that anymore...
    TFS this pretty and heartfelt card (hug in an envelope).

  3. Very nice card. I know it will mean a lot to your friend!

  4. I hope this helps heal her heart a little. Very cute little bone accessory.

  5. I am sure that your friend is comforted by your warm thoughts and this beautiful card!

  6. So sorry for your friend. That is such a lovely card you made. The paw prints on the heart are perfect.

  7. Such a pretty card for your friend.
