August Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop...

Today my post is a bit different in that I am paying tribute to my sweet MagPie. She passed on Aug. 20 and I'm struggling to say the least.  I don't usually share such personal news, but this blog was named after her way back when all this began in December of 2008 and she was a constant companion all these years. Her little bed always sat in the corner of my craftroom. Bella and I are grieving but I know she and I will become closer and hopefully have many years to enjoy each other. This card will be set aside as a keepsake to remind me of Maggie and all the special moments we shared.

One of the things I love about Heartfelt Creations is their products are so well thought out and compliment each other in every way.  Their collections are timeless and this morning my card lets the beautiful paper do all the heavy lifting. I just used the gorgeous papers from the Posy Patch Paper collection and did some matting and some fussy cutting and called it a day.  How simple is that? Colors, images and sentiments all match without having to think about it!



There will be a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person.  You must visit as many of the participating designers as you can and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

If you arrived here from: Amarilys Doria's blog you are right on track and your next stop will be: Emila van den Heuvel's blog.

You have until Midnight, August 28th. to leave a comment on as many of our blogs as you can.  The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on Saturday August 29th.  Good luck to everyone!

Supply List:
Posy Patch Paper HCDP1 231

I'm so sorry for your loss. Beloved pets are family and is just as hard I think. Take comfort in the good memories and knowing you were a great doggy mom. {{{hugs}}} Your card is just beautiful!! The image from the paper you picked to cut out is darling. I actually like to hand cut things like that... very relaxing. Thanks for the idea to help me use up some of the mounds of scrapbook papers I have.

Oh, Glenda, I'm crying for you right now. Your news breaks my heart but, oh, how it must have broken yours. I'm so sorry. I was thinking what an extra sweet and lovely card you have today, and now I know why. It was made with your little MagPie in mind. I'm glad you have Bella. You'll help each other through this loss. Sending hugs.
