Beach Dog

A lot of my paper crafting focuses on holidays and events, such as Halloween and Christmas or birthdays and weddings (as I’m sure yours does as well). You know the adage “write what you know”?  Between holidays and events, I like to create cards in the season I’m experiencing that relate to my world.

This card, created with a variety of die cuts, is inspired by our Golden Retriever Ginger’s love of the beach. Ginger died two years ago (and we still miss her every day!).

During the last year of her life (in which she battled cancer) we took her to the beach as much as possible, as it was truly one of her favorite places to be.

Enjoy your day!
