A Fur Baby Bereavement Card.

This card was a very quick card for a very lovely family that had to have their beloved dog put to sleep this week.
It is such a sad thing to have to say goodbye to a pet of any sort, but losing  a dog is especially upsetting. They become family members and you love them as you would a child,  and they love you back unreservedly and unconditionally They seem to know your every thought and understand your mood, if not your every word.  They are not just pets, they are our fur babies.

Sometimes I think it's harder to lose a  good dog than a friend or some relatives. That may sound a little harsh, but for me it's true. I still get very emotional over losing my King Charles Cavalier, who I lost 9 years ago. But I don't get as emotional over the  death of some of my relatives now.
Maybe because I  was closer to my dog than to the relatives that have passed away.

This card was created using a Lili of the valley stamp called  "Man's best friend". It's a gorgeous stamp and I love colouring this image with my copic markers,
The die cut frame is one section of the Madison Square die set by Sue Wilson. I bought the die purely for this section of it. I am not to keen on the other parts of this die set.
The sentiment is from  the "So Sorry" stamp set by Stampin' Up,,, (now retired). I used it with S.U 's whisper white craft ink.
I added an insert  with my condolences on the right of the insert and a very touching poem on the left which is sure to make any dog owner cry.
