A Blog Hop For My Buddy Dorcas

Welcome to a blog hop dedicated to my good buddy Dorcas. She recently lost her Furbaby, and we all wanted her to know that we are thinking about her. 
It has been a very difficult week, so this hop is for her.  Please join us and see what thoughtful projects these talented ladies made for our good friend!

Surprise girlfriend!!! 
This is for you! We know this does not take away your pain, but we hope it brings a little bit of joy to your day. Grab some tea or chocolate you may be here a while.  There are a lot of people that care about you and we all want you to know that we are all thinking about you during this difficult time.

This is the order you will be hopping. If you get lost pop back here for the list.

So here is my card. Not exactly a surprise since
I already gave it to you!
 Knowing her love of ducks and her love of yellow, this is perfect for her. (So sorry I bought it for you took it away then gave it back. What a bad friend I am!)
Long story! Anyway, hope this makes up for it!
 Love the bird on the brad!
 Not a completed card without pearls!
 Love this image!
