Hello, this is a blog hop that friends of Dorcas have joined in on to let her know we care for her and want to comfort her in the loss of one of her fur-babies. It is so easy to become attached to our furry friends. So we wanted to let her know we care. I did this wall hanging for her.
Dorcas, as you now know, Stacey was the instigator of this idea; isn’t it wonderful to have such thoughtful friends? If you’ve come from Dionne’s blog, you’re on the right track. Please check out the lovely projects we have all created for our friend, and hopefully you’ll leave a comment. If you get lost along the way or have started in the middle, you can go to Stacey’s blog and start from the beginning.
Anyone that knows Dorcas, also knows how much she loves ducks. So I thought I’d do something to hopefully make her smile. (This is also my “Pay It Forward” gift to her. It only took me a little over a year to get it out, but that’s me. LOL) Now you know why I've been not been posting lately.
I hope the colors show up correctly; as it’s difficult to get it right sometimes. The colors on the image by Prairie Fairies, ‘Singin in the Rain’ are prettier in person.
I’ve used die cuts by Cheery Lynn Designs, and then distressed with Tim Holtz inks. Knowing how much Dorcas loves buttons, I thought these would make some lovely flowers. I used my Bow-Easy to make my bow from ribbon I love. I did go easy on the bling, though, but a girl’s got to have some. (LOL) The Bible Scripture is one of her favorites, too, typed on my computer.
Next, please hop on over to Tracy’s blog and see her beautiful design.
