True Love...

Hi guys.
     This is going to be one of my shortest post ever as I had already typed everything out and added my pictures for you all to see and read about when my laptop decided it didn't like me and jumped screens only to delete everything.  Gggrrrr,....
     Oh well no use of crying over deleted ink.  lol...  I wanted to share this card for a couple of reasons.  The first reason is because my Dad lost his beautiful Lab, 'Jake'  from some type of cancer within a very short time of them finding out about it.  I loved Jake as much as I love my Lucy.  The difference is that she is my cat and he was a big beautiful lab dog that was so sweet and so loving that everyone in my whole family just loved Jake. 
     So, when I read about Amy Tangerine having this adorable Washi tape digital paper that looks like a ton of Washi I just had to check it out.  All I needed after that was my Cuttle bug in order to make a circle mat for the middle and a little bit of love to go into my coloring.  I also had so much fun finally opening up my newest OA sets from The Greeting Farms.  They are all such adorable stamps and I used some of Oliver's  clothing to gave to Amelia to wear out and about.  lol
     I think this card turned out to look pretty fun and cute and all in all I am please with it as it kind of helps me to let go of the whole incident.  (Way too much drama to go into on this little old blog of mine...:O)  So I hope you all had a great 4th of July.  If you have to work tomorrow like I do I hope that your day flies by and we can all get onto a great weekend. 
     Until then, I will talk at you all tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Awww, sorry to hear about your dad's dog. This is a great card in honor of the dog. I love the washi tape paper, and once again you have done some awesome head swapping! This is a great CAS card. Super cute!

This card is adorable! So bright and colorful! Just perfect for cheering someone up. So sad about your father's dog, but the card truly reflects love.

Your card is adorable Lisa but so sorry to hear about your dad's dog, always hard to lose a family pet, they are part of the family too. Hope you have a great weekend and I am really enjoying my stuff from you, thanks again!

So sorry to hear about your Dad's dog - our pets become so much a part of our families, don't they? Your card is absolutely adorable. I love that paper - I actually thought it WAS washi tape till I read your post ;)
