Recently I was asked to make some thank you cards with paw prints.  A friend of mine trains helper dogs for the disabled.  I hope she likes what I have done.  This is the first one.  I have had this image for a very long time and I have never used it.  I thought for a thank you it was adorable.

I embossed the card with paw prints and used some distress ink on them.  Then I thought that I should do it on the inside also.  Of course I only used it on one side and distressed it as well.

I'm about to send her a pick so cross my fingers she likes it!

Thanks so much for your visit and have a blessed day!
