Those of you who regularly visit FWF and have been with me for awhile, do you remember this picture?
Two of my good friends and I took 3 of our Golden Retrievers on a 3 hour road trip to a fund raising walk for a Golden Retriever Rescue Organization that we are involved in. That was last October. Annie, the dog on the left, had bone cancer, needed her front leg removed, but walked the walk just fine. Annie let nothing slow her down! Not cancer, not blindness. Not, that is, until her cancer returned. Last Thursday, I got an email that had the header, "Sad news about Annie". I started to cry before I even opened the email. I told my husband, "I think Annie's gone. I'm not going to open this." Well, of course, she was gone whether I read the heart-breaking news or not. Those of you who are dog lovers know. Annie is the "only child" to Janelle and Tyler and she was their world. In honor of Annie, and to show Janelle and Ty some of what I was feeling for them, I made this card.
And, a close up of the woven ribbon and embellishments.
