For a Friend

A friend of ours recently lost his beloved dog when she ran out onto the road and hit a car.  He was heartbroken because that dog was his best friend so I thought I should make him a card to let him know we were thinking of him.
The image is Mo Manning's Retriever and this digi could not have been more perfect if I'd asked Mo to make it for me especially for this card.  The card doesn't need much.. the saying is one I found on the internet and I simply added a red gem to match the paper. Then a little Frantage and it was done.
Now I know this card has no product from The Paper Trail but Chelsea has started a brand new challenge blog so head on over and check it out.  The theme is as easy as it gets... it's Anything Goes and you have a chance to win a gift cert from her shop.
Thanks for stopping by!

This will just hit the spot I am sure, it's perfect for such an occasion. Sorry for your friend though, we lost our springer spaniel several years ago when he was hit by a car, it's devastating. xx
