I recently made a couple pet loss card for my mother to give to her best friends and her family. They lost their family dog recently and my mother wanted each family member to have own their card. I used quotes on all them, because I don’t think sorry for your loss is ever enough. I posted some of my favorite pet loss quotes below.  I hope you like these cards.

Quotes

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. “

~Anatole France

……………………………………………………….

“Grief drives men into habits of serious reflection,

sharpens the understanding, and softens the heart”

~John Adams

……………………………………………………….

Grief knits two hearts in closer bonds
than happiness ever can;
and common sufferings are far stronger links
than common joys.

~Alphonse de Lamartine

……………………………………………………….

“If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness.”

~Marjorie Garber

……………………………………………………….

“The one best place to bury a good dog is in the heart of his master.”

~Ben Hur Lampman

……………………………………………………….

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.”

~Vicki Harrison

……………………………………………………….

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

~Roger Caras

……………………………………………………….

“The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”

~Mark Twain

……………………………………………………….

“A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life.”

~Bob Barker

……………………………………………………….

“A good dog never dies. He always stays. He walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near. His head is within our hand in his old way.”

~Mary Carolyn Davies

……………………………………………………….

“No one loves you unconditionally as your beloved pet.”

~Cynthia S. Dobesh

Handmade Thank You Nest Card


One of my coworkers asked me to make her some Thank You cards today. I made this one for her and love it so much, I don’t want to give it away. To make this card, I started with an A2 kraft cardstock base. I cut the nest from Give Hoot at 2 1/2 inches. The base layer is brown recollection card stock, the top layer is brown bazzill texture card stock, and the eggs are blue pattern paper from K & Company Abrianna Specialty Paper Pad. I attached the nest with some pop dots. I wrapped some hemp around the card and then secured it with Studio G Polka Dot button. I used some glue dots to attach two blue buttons below the hemp. For sentiment, I stamped Thank You in embossing ink on Ribbon Tag, and embossed it with ebony embossing powder. The banner was attached with pop dots. For the finishing touches, I corner rounder the bottom right corner, added some dashed lines, and used glossy accents on the eggs.  Hope you like this card.
