Thanks for Your Support !

This is a card I made to give to the vets and staff at the veterinary clinic where I have been taking my cats for the last 7 years. Unfortunately I recently lost my Freya who was the grand old age of 22, she had a long and healthy life and in her last days the vets and staff were so kind and supportive not just to Freya but to me as well, showing great compassion and thoughtfulness ,so I wanted to make them a card to thank them for their care.

The stamp is a favourite of mine, " Uplifting Occasion " by Penny black, I have stamped it several times and decoupaged it to give a 3D effect and `lift` it off the page ! The image is water coloured with distress inks.
The background papers are both sides of Imaginisce - Fairest of them all - Enchanted Garden. The punch is Ash branch L-Em from Sir Stampalot and I`ve just used a paper piercing tool to give a stitched effect round the edges.

I have been suffering a bit with depression lately, it didn`t help loosing my best furry friend of the last 22 years, but through crafting I have met and made some wonderful friends who have helped enormously to cheer me up and I`d like to take this opportunity to thank them whole heartedly for including me in their outings and gatherings lately. Crafting has really been a life line for me and has helped me on the road to recovery, so thank you all and thank you again to everyone who has visited and commented on my blog.

Bye for now and happy crafting xx
