Doggie in the Window...Sympathy Card

Designed by Jeannie Phillips Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
This card is a labor of love!... Craig a wonderfully sweet young man at work lost his Grandmother this week .... and his parents are so special too you can tell by how he talks about them... I wanted this card to be a special memory of Craig's grandmother... we had talked often during her stay at the hospital about how much she loved her puppy dog... Craig so understands how much I love my dog, Shaggy and had compared it to how much his grandmother loved her sweet puppy... and then when I was leaving work I asked Craig what would remind his dad of his grandmother..he said she loved her yard... her flowers... so this is what I came up with.... I so hope that it touches Craig and his family in a sweet memory way! thank you for looking... Hugs Jeannie

Dragonfly Dreams

This is a Vicki/Jeannie challenge card....Vicki wanted to try the dragonfly on the Home Decor cartridge.... I knew dragonflies are good luck..... so we went with the dragonfly cut and the greeting good luck.... I was at a loss.... went to work with this card on my mind.... a friend at work, Sharon... a real sweetheart....and an outdoor person for sure helped me come up with this idea when I asked her... "Sharon tell me where beside the creek that I would see dragonflies? I need to make a dragonfly card." .... we talked and talked about this and then I though on it all day long... I used hemp cord to make the bobbed wire fence....I cut my lengths and tied knots along the length ... then glued the knots in place ... Thank you so much Sharon....
