So after taking her in on Friday morning I thought it was time to make a couple of cards to say "thank you" both to the surgeon and his wonderful team and to one of the nurses who has in particular gone out of her way to spoil Sally too.
And there is of course no other stamp set more suitable than the retired D is For Dog for a black Lab :-)
So a simple sketch but a little "modernising" of the retired stamp with the Large Polka Dots EF and the wonderful Hello You Framelits.
And although the word framelit is actually "thanks," I wanted something a little more formal for this occasion and so cut off the "s" and stamped the word "You" instead.
Tip: to get the lighter versions of the dog, I used a Stamp-a ma-jig and stamped off once and then twice to get the right shades.

Inks: Momento Tuxedo Black, Real Red

Accessories: Big Shot, Hello You Framelits, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine, Basic Rhinestones, Stamp-a-ma-jig.
To go with the card I also stopped by Arnolds - one of the best cake shops in Melbourne and picked up a freshly made and full of cream, custard and everything else decadent little wonder - though I probably should've brought it out of the fridge for the photo :-)
And next is the card for the special Nurse that has done what I never thought possible - and made friend's with Sally. Poor Sally is really scared at Vet's but she always gets very well treated here and it's the one place she doesn't tremble with fear in the waiting room!
And so still D is for Dog but this time used the fun Balloon Framelits :-)

And here she is looking a little sleepy still from her previous op - the little cute dressing from her favourite nurse of course :-) Now you can see why D is for Dog was the obvious stamp choice too!!
Happy stamping until next time,
