Good-bye, Daisy....

Hello again, my Bloggin' Buddies...
Can you believe it...we're already into August!! The weeks seem to be flying by, don't they?? Before I know it, we'll be gearing up for the winter holidays! Oooh...wait...not yet! First I have to go on vacation!! So it's not quite time for Christmas! But it IS time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! Our hostess this week is our very own delightfully talented DT sistah, Miz Debbie. She'd like for us to make...

an easel card with an animal or bird "somewhere" on the card.

Easy peasy, right?! Especially since Mo has so many images that perfectly fit this challenge! Well...I had no trouble choosing my image for this week's challenge...I chose Bronte's Kisses available HERE at Mo's Digital Pencil. Not only do you get this adorable little Bella & Bronte image, as a bonus you also get 3 perfect sentiments!! Kinda like 4 for the price of one!! I always love a bargain! LOL!!

Sad story...our neighbors' beloved Springer Spaniel, Daisy, passed away a few weeks ago. Daisy was so well loved by all of us in the nrighborhood...especially by our two furbaby boys (Toy Poodles), Fiyero & Cooper. So I thought I'd make a clean and simple little card to give Daisy's "mom and dad". The sentiment (which came with the image) seemed so perfect. Here's a close-up...

I'm not quite sure what's happening to me...another card with ORANGE!!! Yikes!! Well...I kinda thought the blue and orange seemed to work...even though I'm really more of a PINK person than orange!! hehehe!! The blue DPs are from the Enchanted Collection by Imaginisce, and the orange DP is from KI Memories, Princess Collection (I got this from my local craft store). Ribbons and pearls came from my stash...and the gorgeous flowers are from, you guessed it, Wild Orchid Crafts!!
