Thinking Of You

I made this card for a friend that lost her dog of 15 years
around the same time I lost my Cody Cat.  I understand
her pain and wanted her to know I have been thinking
about her.  Even though it been a couple of months,
when they have been a part of your life that long, it still hurts.  
I also made this card for the 
Verve Sketches for the month of February.
This is the first sketch.  I did them out of order because 
I had a serious mental block with this one.  It is a great
sketch, but I could not get it to work.   So I tried
 another idea, and could not get it to work either, so I went 
back to this and wola! It worked.! I think it was the pressure
of having to finish it.  I seem to work well under pressure!

The medallion is a Martha Stewart tag with a punch out
of the paper.  This paper pack is cool because it
came with lots of matching paper, stickers, tags, letters, 
& chipboard! It will be awesome to scrapbook with. 
 The inside of card
 Inside- Top
What the heart has once owned
and had, it shall never lose.
