A sad goodbye to my best FRIEND

We had to say goodbye to our best friend in the whole world, our beautiful  Papillon Tyler, on 12/13/2010

We miss him so much, he was more than a dog to us and he helped us through many hard times over the years. The house feels so empty without him. It was the hardest discussion we have ever had to make in our lives, but we knew it the right one.
He went into congestive heart failure, couldn't walk, eat , and struggled to breathe,   Too much for a Mommy to watch!!   I know he was a good age {13} but it doesn't make it any easier.

They bring so much joy to our lives, yes like one of the family!!
I placed a pic in my side bar as well, and there he will stay, as he will forever be in my heart!!!

Vintage memories

I follow a very FUN blog called Create with TLC, with great digi stamps and sayings, that are Free!
So Paulette's challlenge was to create something with a great digi called Vintage Baking
Here is my take on it, this was a challenge for me,as I am really not a vintage person, I am usually bright collors and funky papers, but it came out okay!!  It would make a great Miss You card for someone who is far from home!!
Also adding it to a couple extra challenges that it fits:
Incy Wincy - Punches
One Stop Craft Challenge - distressing
Crafty Cardmakers  - Inky Fingers
Speedy the Cat  - die cut
Beary Sweet Challenge - Emboss
