"Thank You" To Our Veterinarian

Hello, so today I have a quick story to tell you...
My little adopted Italian Greyhound "Stella" was diagnosed about a week ago with "acute pancreatitis"...she was sooooo sick and it was probably brought on by giving her too many snacks...people and beggin strips. :( My husband was sooo upset because she is his princess. He took her to the vet and she has been on 3 medications, one of them for pain. Our poor baby! We felt so bad and at complete fault. Well, it has been 10 days now and to our surprise she is feeling almost like her old self again. I did lots of research and it reads that it can take 4-6 weeks so we really feel blessed. She is on a new diet and NO more snacks ever again! So, today I wanted to make a card for the veterinarian who really took good care of her and was very compassionate about pain medications...I know that if you are in pain you don't heal as fast so this sure was very important to us. Thank You! 

This is the card that I made for her...I'm working on the inside with all my gratitude.
It was inspired by 2 people, first Linda Loew with her recent heart card that I just loved and had to make and second, by Becca Feekin and a card she made a while ago for dog sympathy.
Thank you both! 

Here you can see I added pop dots for a bit of dimension. I used spellbinders "decorative labels eight" for the intricate diecuts. I also used my cricut for the hearts. The embossed vellum wings are from "mixd media elements". The tiny bones are from a little bone punch that I found at the dollar store. 

I just love the "bitty blossoms" and I actually used the same pink cardstock and then colored them with a copic marker. Next I added some "fairy dust glitter" pralines and cream to give it a little shine. 
The adorable dog stamp is from Heartfelt Creations called "antique truck" and there are actually 2 different doggies to pick, one with flowers and one without. The paw print stamp is from Inkadinkado and I bought it the local Michael's. I really like it because it looks like a real paw print with the smearing

Here is a closer view of the wings...
for after all I think our vet is an angel sent here to take care of our beloved pets. 
Especially, our little "Stella" 

Thanks for stopping by today and I appreciate all you warm wishes and thoughts
for our princess to get fully healthy once again!

I love this card and the thought behind it! I just had to euthanize a pet and the vet was so compassionate and understanding, it made everything so much easier. I think she deserves a thank you also! Thanks for the idea.
