Amy E said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. They are such a part of the family, that it hurts to lose them. We have a cat (and other cats and dogs) who is 17 years old. She was a birthday present for my daughter's 8th birthday. Every time my daughter comes to visit, she always gives the kitty extra love, since she's dreading that bad news one of these days.

I hope you feel better're in my thoughts.

Sue said...

Oh Vicky, I'm so sorry to see that you lost your little Scottie. I know how devastated you are feeling, we were the same when our German Shepherd died a few years back. He also had a tumour on his liver.

Making yourself busy is the best thing to take your mind off things and crafting is such a good way of absorbing yourself into another world.

Your card is lovely.

Take card. Sue.x

Shelly said...

Oh Vicky, I was just scrolling through what you've been up to the last few days... I'm so so sorry hun to read about your little doggie, you must be so sad (I know I'd be in a right state). At least you know she won't be suffering now ;) Your card is of course gorgeous as always, love the rich browns. Keep your chin up sweetie, and take care, Shelly xx

Sarah said...

Hi Vicky, sorry this comment is late - only just catching up with your blog. Am so sorry to hear about your loss, they may 'only' be pets but that doesn't make a difference to your heart when we loose them - they still leave a hole there. We have cats now (hubby is alergic to dogs) and have lost a few over the years - it hurts every time.

It feels a bit silly to add this, but I do love your card. I knew your Sugar Nellie cards would wow and this one certainly does.

Best wishes, lots of hugs.

Noreen said...

Very pretty card Vicky, I'm so sorry about your beloved dog. I've been awol for a long time and am just catching up with people's blogs again , and am hoping to get back to blogging again very soon. xx

Hazel said...

I don't know if I told you on our DT blog but I'm so sorry for your loss. Our furry friends become a huge part of our lives and it's always so sad when they aren't with us.
Sending big hugs and sloppy dog kisses off my three dafties,
