"D" is for Dog Sympathy Card

We have all had to put a beloved pet down at some point and we all know how hard that is. They become such an intergral part of our families. We have lost several beloved cats over the past few years. Recently, one of my hubby's co-workers had to put down his dog that he had rescued and has had for quite sometime and it was difficult. Harold asked me to make a card for him to give him from us, since we know how hard it is. He didn't ask until late the night before, so I kept it simple. I went ahead and made several extra, as I know several people with older dogs, so I figured I would keep some on hand. I was happy with the way they turned out for such short notice.I made 2 with Not Quite Navy and 2 with Night of Navy and both also used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla cardstock. I used the ticket corner punch as well. Can you guess which color combo he took - LOL!

Now to make some with "C" is for Cats, as I have a lot of friends with cats as well.

More St. Patty's Day Treats

Sorry for the delay in posting, but here are the treat bags I made for my other 2 red hat groups. I went a lot simpler on these and just did a very, very simple tag for the bags. I had 4 of the previous rainbow twizzler treat bags left and used 2 ea. of those as door prizes at the other 2 luncheons.
These were for the 3/15 Sweet Magnolia Luncheon

Here are some of my Sweet Magnolias!
 Bea celebrated her 80th birthday this month!

Today is Bobbie's 75th birthday!

These were for the 3/21 Scarlet Sophisticates luncheon. Sorry, I didn't get a better close-up. It is the same as above, just done using the wide oval punch instead of the rectangular die.

Here are some of my lovely Scarlets!

St. Patty's Day Treats

This year I hosted my Red Hat Busy Bee group for March. We went to a place called The Pub. First time there. It was very good. I always like to do party favors when I host and this one was shared by several demos on my LNSDemosonly group. I loved it. The idea originated with www.ourbestbites.com . So I just had to make them. The topper was made using My Digital Studio.

While I did have a blast making these, 14 of them was more than enough, so my 2 other groups (1 of which I am also hosting at The Pub this week) will not be getting these. I will be making something for my Sweet Magnolias, but not quite as time consuming. I'll share those after the event on the 15th. I will also be making a little something for my Scarlet Sophisticates group (even though I am not hosting it) on the 21st. I must admit, I enjoy making things like this more than I like making cards. Probably why I haven't sat down and made any in awhile. Need to do so soon.  :-)
