FWF Sympathy Circles

Hey ya'll! So sorry I've been a bit quite over here- just been catching up with friends and family. But, I'm back! DH and I had a great time visiting the Chesapeake Bay Retriever breeder, where we'll be getting our puppy from in November/December!! We got to meet all the girls that are being bred in the next few months and pick whose litter we'd like a puppy from- it was a great relaxing weekend! We spent time swimming in the lake with the breeder and her dogs, getting to know all the dogs and the breeder herself.

So, now onto the card- Happy Friends with Flair Friday!! I grabbed the colors from ColourQ #95, inked up my May KOM "think HAPPY thoughts," and focused on using lots of circles to play along over at Unity Challenge this month! And here ya go- CAS sympathy card. I don't know about you, but I don't particularly like making sympathy cards- too sad :(


Anyhoo, gotta end the post on a positive note- our deposit has been made, and we'll be getting a puppy late fall/early winter!! hehe- so so excited- they're such fabulous dogs! have a fantastic weekend, ya'll :D
