Thanks from Toby

Its been a few weeks since we laid our Toby to rest. He was such a beautiful dog that I wanted him to be the focal point on the card so all I added was just a simple linen thread bow and some brads to embellish. I gave this card to our vets, Dr. Harris and Dr. Kerns at Midshore Veterinary Service, to thank them for their friendship, care and support over the last seven years.  Toby was so protective of me each time we went to the vet’s and would sometimes growl at the staff that I often had to leave the exam room so they could work with him. But they always came out with a smile saying what a great and loyal dog he was to me. One of the things my husband will miss as Spring rolls around is his golf ball chaser. Toby loved to go over to the field with him while he practiced his swing and would bring back his balls for him. We keep looking to see him everywhere in the house as he was constantly under foot and following us from room to room. I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I tripped over him, especially getting out of the bed in the middle of the night. We never knew which side he was going to sleep on as it seemed he rotated sides torn between having to make the decision between the two of us. He was a extremely faithful and we love and miss him dearly.

Elegant Paisley Petals!

Paisley Petals Thank You

True elegance is what you get when you choose this Designer Series Paper! Stampin’ Up! always has such beautiful two-sided background papers – you never know which side to choose from. But the choice was right with this simple thank you card I designed for a recent Stamp-A-Stack class I held.  I pick a different theme each month for my stamp-a-stacks and this one focused on thank you cards.  With this background paper you don’t need bows or any other fancy embellishments and that makes it easy to give this card to a guy or a gal. For this card I chose to frame out my “thank you” with one of the frames from the stamp set “Four Frames”. It was just the right touch. Don’t you think?

If you would like to attend my next Stamp-A-Stack class, it will be held on August 25 from 7-10 p.m. and will feature the new Ronald McDonald House Charity Stamp Set called Turtle & Co.  $2.00 from the purchase of each stamp set is donated by Stampin’ Up! to Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Hope you can come!

Love the paper used on this card?  Stampin’ Up! has a special for the month of August – buy 3 packs of Designer Series Paper and get an additional pack for FREE!  Check out all the different papers to choose from in the new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog on pages 184 to 186, but don’t forget about the Nautical Expedition DSP from the Summer Mini Catalog on page 8.   Try not to drool too much!  They are a great buy at only $10.95 each!
 
My personal favorite in the new catalog is the new Mocha Morning Specialty DSP which we’ll be using in my upcoming Kindness Matters Stationery Kit Stamp Camp on August 14 from 1-6 p.m.  Unfortunately, this is a Specialty DSP and is not included in the DSP special.  My other favorites include:  Beau Chateau, Well Worn, Beyond the Garden, and Big Top Birthday.  Click on the Idea Book & Catalog on my right side bar to order your DSP today!
