I used Amalia Daisy Crown from Dilly Beans as the image for this card. The layout is on a 5 1/2" x 6" folded card with the image colored with copics, gold decorative paper and plaid gift wrap... a postage stamp inspired sentiment and decorative paper flowers and a line of red bling compliment this card.

Life Goes On...
so here we are again, Life Goes On, another installment in hopefully a continued event on my blog... and its another beautiful day in the Okanagan. Hot warm days (30ºC) bright skies and cool drinks...patio living at it's finest I find myself thinking of this coming Thursday with sadness as we will say good bye to our beloved dog, Ali... yet... there is comfort in all of it too... that we are being respectful for her quality of life and easing her pain. I believe people (and animals) come into our lives for a reason or purpose. Ali had a purpose as a therapy dog... by way of physical for my in-laws poodle when they were both pups, and by way of comfort when I hit a low run for a while in my life. So I will thank our little dog for all hat she gave me while she joined us here on our life journey.
I love dragonflies for a couple of reasons. Mostly, because I get visited by a dragonfly in the most unusual and unexpected places. Secondly, I love their shape and color... I have a small dime-sized dragonfly tattoo on my left ankle and I find extreme comfort when I am visited. Why? A dragonfly has always and will always be my Mom. My Mom passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) 20 years ago and she always comes for a visit. She has been there when we've left for our motorbike trips, when something with a lot of emotional riptides will occur or is currently happening, when I need a reminder that I am loved deeply and unconditionally. Three dragonfly visits in 4 days... Thanks Mom... you always know what I need... so my thought for the day...
