Seize the Sketch and Basic Grey

This week on Seize the Sketch challenge blog they have a great sketch.


I needed to make some thank you notes for my daughter.  She has had some wonderful friends who have helped her through a very rough time in her life.  Her good friends came and took care of the dogs many days so Staci was able to be at the hospital with her husband and while the family were with Chris during his final hours, they brought the family food and drink to sustain them through the night.  What can you do to thank a family for such kindness and friendship?



This is my version of the sketch made into a square card.  I thought this image of a dog was very appropriate since one of Staci's dogs is a yellow lab and Axel alias Squirt is also yellow in color.  I just noticed I forgot to color the collar.  I think it will be red.  Both stamps are from Whipper Snapper Stamps.  The paper is from Basic Grey.

Thanks for stopping by.
