Thinking of you Dorcas

     This blog hop post is in honor of my sweet friend Dorcas.  I think just about every household in America has at least one pet.  Well, I also think you'd need more than your fingers and toes to count off Dorcas's menagerie.  :-)  Unfortunately, this past week she lost one of her furbabies, Gingerboy cat.  Our pets are members of our families and losing Gingerboy has been pretty rough on Dorcas.  Her bestie friend Stacey decided to put together a little blog hop with a few of Dorcas's friends so that we can let her know how much we care about her broken heart and show her some love.
     My card is made from one of the images from the new monthly club kit from A Day For Daisies.  I know how much you love ADFD images Dorcas and when I saw this little guy I knew he was just the one to deliver my message to you.  I am thinking of you my friend and have been since I heard the news.  I know your heart is hurting and it will take some time to mend.  I just hope we, as your friends, can help it mend a little bit faster.
     If you arrived here from Debbie's blog then you're on the right track.  If you didn't, you can go to Stacey's blog and start from the beginning.  Your next stop from here is Tine's blog.
     Huge hugs to you Dorcas!

Jennifer Scull said...

I thought I had already stopped by on the hop, Tracy, to tell you how much I love your card. the fact that all of you came together for Dorcas just touches my heart so much! our pets mean so much to us, don't they?
your card is beautiful, and I can't wait until I can buy this kit. every image in it is beautiful, but when has Tammy ever created one that isn't? kind of like you making a card that doesn't touch a special part of someone's soul..... hugs to you, dear friend! you will always be an inspiration to me!

oh yes, so glad you are entering this into our challenge at Jellypark! ;)

Pami said...

I got teary reading your post Tracy, losing a beloved pet is a horrible thing to go through. I lost my collie in 2009 and it still feels like yesterday. You are very sweet to think of Dorcas and this is a darling card.
