Life is a Beautiful Ride

About a month ago, I was introduced to Flora and Fauna clear stamps. When I saw the little VW van die, I had one of those, "Ohhhhh! I must get this!" moments. My package was shipped quickly but seemed to take the scenic route to get to me. It's here now and I had a chance to play with it!


When I saw the latest Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp is Furry Friends, I decided to combine my new van die with a furry friend in order to play along! The little pup is from a stamp set that came free with the May 2017 issue of Craft Beautiful. I've had the paw print paper since I first began paper crafting about 10 years ago.

For those of you saying prayers for my family, thank you. The past month has been especially rough and we've been told that my husband is likely in his final month or two with us. My heart is still in disbelief that this is happening. We are blessed with tremendous support from my family and friends. Still, it's all a nightmare. We appreciate your continued prayers and positive thoughts. xox

Products used:

Pup stamp from Crafts Beautiful (free stamp set included with May 2017 issue)
Paw print paper from Daisy Hill

I love how you have used the pup and the van to make this adorable card, the paper is so right for the 60s flower power era.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my cards, much appreciated, especially with all you have going on in your life, I am so sad to hear time is short with your hubby, I can't imagine how you must feel. My thought and prayers have been, and will be, with you through this horrible time.
Hugs

Your little VW driving pup made me smile, Kate. I think he's a hippie at heart with his paw print van. ;)
I sent you an email before I read this post. My prayers continue for Ralph and the rest of the family.

Because you have a "no-reply" on your post, I can't answer comments you make on my blog. I tried to send you a separate email but I have the wrong address and it came back to me. Will you send your email address to me please? bobbarah at gmail dot com.
