I'm not very good at "one day at a time". I've been wondering how long I have with him, and worrying about how my other dog will handle the loss. She's just three years old, has separation anxiety, and I actually got her so they could keep each other company while I'm at work! I left her alone once, when I took him to the vet for a day-long test, and had to come home from my work because my neighbor could hear her crying and barking frantically because she was alone. This whole experience has been emotionally draining and I'm pretty sure that I won't be getting another dog once he's gone.
So I've been trying to adjust to this development and I'm starting to get back to doing what makes me happy. I'm on vacation this week so I'll have time to catch up on things at home and in blogland! To start, I decided to make my March tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2013.
I love Tim's tag but I was in the mood for something a little more funky and colorful. So here is my version...
The photo doesn't reflect how bright the colors are. I tried to do better but finally gave up!
The harlequin patterned background paper was black and white. I distressed the edges with Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Mowed Lawn and Peacock Feathers. Then I went around again with Brushed Corduroy. I distressed the label/bunny die cut with Peacock Feathers and then sprayed it with Biscotti Perfect Pearls mist. The crinkle ribbon around the bunny was dyed with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade distress stain. The crinkle ribbon at the top was dyed with Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn distress stain. The rest of the tag was done like Tim's. I love the little flower stick pins!! Aren't they so cool?! What a great idea!
I made two while I was at it...one I'll give to a friend and the other that says "Life is Good" is for myself.
So thank you for stopping by and for listening to me pour out my problems! I hope you have time to make your own March tag for Tim's challenge!
