In Memory of Cassidy & Today Is The Day Valentine Card

Our family pet and buddy of more years than I thought possible died this past weekend. Cassidy was a rescue dog. When our daughter worked as a vet tech in Atlanta, a dog was bought in after being hit by a vehicle. The doctor had to put several pins in her shoulder to hold the bones together, but she survived. Sarah took her in and adopted her as her own. When she moved back here to Ohio, Cassidy came along. After Sarah married and began her family, they moved further north and Cassidy came to live with us. The fenced in yard was great for her and after Adelaide was born, the two became fast friends. Near as we can figure, she was sixteen to seventeen years old. She was frisky until the end when the seizures hit.
These last couple days have been hard ones. The Lord gave us such a good companion over the years... she is most definitely missed.

My valentine today is a pocket card. I haven't made any for awhile, and felt like changing things up a bit. It's a mix of Echo Park, Graphic 45 and some odd scraps.

The 3-D sticker is from the My Mind's Eye Record-It Heirloom collection. The flowers are by I Am Roses.

The image is a digi from an Etsy shop as is the red and white ruffled trim. The grosgrain ribbon came from our local scrapbook store when they had their close-out sale several years ago. (Are there any local independent stores left?) The cupid die cuts were a gift from Linda at The Funkie Junkie Boutique

More sneak peeks coming next post!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!
