Some Puddle Fun

It was another emotional day for me. I had to go pick up Sam at her Vets office, we had her cremated. As soon as the receptionist handed me Sam’s urn the tears started all over again. Bryan came home from work early just to be with me, he’s the best. I’m glad to have Sam back home again. All the crying left me with a massive headache today, but I do want to share this Happy Hoppers (HH) card.

I also received another order of Happy Hoppers in the mail today. Maybe this weekend in-between baseball & softball I can get them inked up and get some cards made. Dick from HM Stamps started a website gallery for us to display our Happy Hoppers cards. Take a peek inside the Happy Hoppers Gallery, or better yet you can submit a HH card to share.

For this HH I used the stamp Puddle Fun. I’m loving my new Retro Prints DCWV pattern paper (and I'm not really a retro kind of gal) I also used it for the umbrella (Paper Piecing). The cardstock is Apricot, Peach & Leapfrog from Bazzill and TAC Brown. The brads are also from Bazzill, Peach Puff. I used Sakura Stardust Gelly pen on the puddle and raindrops. I also added a little piece of cotton to the bunny’s tail.

Thanks for peeking in an have a wonderful weekend ~

  5. Oh Jovi,
    I totally understand the way you feel. When we put our dog, Charlie, down several years ago, both my husband and I cried for a month. The tears would just start up again, for no reason. They are your family. Mourning is an important part of life. I hope today is a better day for you. Your card is adorable!

  6. Im sorry you are having to go through all that with Sam....I do know what your going through. I lost a dog about three years ago due to an accident in our pool.

    On a happy note, I just love your new card. I really want to order some more of those Happy Hoppers. I only have one right now.

    Thanks for sharing.


  7. Sam will always be with you, Jovi. May he rest in peace.
