I'm just loving these Spellbinder dies. I really like how they are so easy to use and how you can emboss with them to get a real finished look. I also love how easy they are to store and transport to all my stamping retreats and events . . . no more punches to lug around.
Now I would like to share the inspiration I had when creating this card. The day I made it was a very sad day . . . it was the birthday of my sweet little God Puppy Sophie. Sophie was a little black tea cup toy poodle who would have been celebrating her fourth birthday that very day. Tragically, Sophie passed away this past fall of a congenital heart defect. Sweet little Sophie changed my life the day I met her. We never had pets as I was growing up and I was never a dog person before . . . but that sweet little black puppy with all her love and kisses and her gentle soul made me fall in love with her instantly and I knew at that very moment that I needed a Sophie in my life. Had it not been for Sophie . . . I would have never known the love of a puppy and would have never been blessed with my sweet little Willow . . . whom you all know I love and adore! So this card was made in Sophie's honor because every time I think of her . . . I think of a sweet little butterfly flying off to the heavens and I will love her always. Rest in peace sweet little Sophie Girl . . . you will forever be loved and missed by me and your God Sister Willow.
Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have a story about a special puppy in your life, please feel free to share it.
I will be back soon with more projects, a Spellbinders prize, and a lot more fun stuff.
Big stamping hugs!
