Haven't been around in a while, eh? I'm not very good at this blogging thing.
The day after my last post, I got to visit my canine pal Diesel. He was going through a very difficult time in his life, so it meant a lot to get to visit him and spend the day with him at the park and at his home. I made this tag for his gift...
His gift? Two blankets from the baby section of the store [baby blankets are extra-extra-soft].
It made me happy just to see how happy Diesel was at the park. It was as though his illness just lifted away for a time. Combined, we took over 400 pictures of him! :o) I wanted to make a mini album for them, but it turned into two because I picked more photos than one album could fit. I loved all of them! I don't feel right about sharing their personal photos here, so I'll just share this one so you can get an idea of what one of the albums was like...
I love making mini albums nice and chunky and full of journaling cards and pockets. The second album was just as chunky -- probably a little more.
I also made this card that I gave to them on a following visit...
I love animal stamps that have enough open space to allow you to colour them to look like certain pets. Most of the time, when I'm colouring a cat stamp, I'll colour him to look like Humble. :o) Here, I tried to watercolour the dog to look like Diesel.
It was very sad having to say goodbye...I didn't have the chance to know Diesel for a long time, but the time that I did get to know him was and is very special to me. Miss you already, sweet little guy, and I wish I could see you running in the park again. There's a lot of love for you on this side of the bridge.
