He was 14 which is a really good age for a Tibetan and I take great comfort in the fact that he had a full and healthy life right up to the end and that he was much loved. It has left a huge void in our family though. He was such a sweet natured dog, gave kisses everyday, and was always happy - and that is how I want to remember him !!!!

I have found it hard to come to terms with but it gets easier each day and as they say, Time is a Healer !! I need to get busy again. I am getting back into my cardmaking but I am making a lot of mistakes !! can't cut straight etc. etc. Anyway, I am looking forward to Easter. Spring is settling in, but where is the sun? hope it comes back to Manchester, UK. LOL.
I made this card for a friend. Some blossom trees are already out, and this paper/decoupage set reminds me of Japanese Cherry Blossom. The backing paper and decoupage are from A4 Papermania Oriental Stack that my darling daughter bought me for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. The papers are SO beautiful, lots of blossoms and decoupage and exploding boxes!!! ??? I must have a go at those !!! LOL
I didn't want the card to be over fussy. The main flower and a couple of flowers below are decoupage, although they don't show up all that well in the photos, so I hope that you can see the effect. The strip down the left is Oriental Ribbon Sticker which I bought ages ago and can't remember where! It says Best Wishes. Again it didn't photograph very well.
