My sister lost her English bulldog, Millie, this week.  She was nearly eleven (pretty old for a bully) and had failed quickly...she's now at the Rainbow Bridge with her brothers Mack and Louie. We must cherish the time we have with our pets, for they are always gone too soon.  I pray I have several more years with my boys, but I know the time will come.

I sent Cindy this card to bring just a speck of comfort.

A Few Details:
  • In my mind, this sweet little bluebird looked like he was carrying a message from heaven.  A message of love from Millie to my sister.  :-)  I used a pink rub-on heart from a Valentine's Day set to embellish the envelop.
  • Rock Candy Distress Stickles add some heavenly sparkle to the little birdie, heart, and surrounding foliage.
  • The patterned papers are of course from My Mind's Eye.  The "Cherish" greeting was cut from a collage page and accented with a little Old Paper Distress Stickles.  It's mounted on foam tape for a bit of dimension.
