Willie


The challenge on Tracy's blog provided me with an opportunity to make a card for my brother. You see, his dog of 17 years passed away recently and I have been wanting to make a card to let my brother know how sorry I am at his loss. Willie was a great dog. My brother and his family all loved that dog so much. He would bark at everything and anything and I bet it drove his neighbors crazy!

I finally bought the doghouse stamp from A Muse and got to work on this card. Couldn't resist putting a little MS fence in front of it and a little bone with Willie's name so there is no mistake at just who's house that is. I added the soft, fur-like ribbon because it reminded me of his soft fur and how much fun it was to pet him. So long, Willie, we all miss you so much.
