I Know It's Kind of Odd...

... but it's a good kind of card to have in your stash. I'm talking about sympathy cards for the loss of a faithful pet. A friend had to have a long-loved dog put down last year, and I didn't really have anything to fit the bill. A couple of weeks ago, Mo Manning, from Mo's Digital Pencil was offering this digi set,uber-cheap, to raise money to help local animals. Couldn't pass it up.

The melancholy look on the child's face made me think it would serve this purpose well.

The sentiment reads, "The dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. - Josh Billings"

This also is for the challenges at:
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Four Legged Friends
Stampin' for the Weekend - Paws for Thought
Paper Sundaes - Clouds and Skies
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Friends are Heaven-sent. Tell me your dog isn't your best friend. (Oh dear, this is a bit like Friends Are Sent to Heaven. :P )
The Paper Players - Use this sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you and your four-legged friends are doing well despite the heat. I feel so sorry for our yard bunnies that I've finally decided that they can just have the garden. It's fried anyway.
Come again soon!
