Pet Sympathy Card

My good friend's son's pet parakeet just died. I've lost three birds myself, they are quite fragile creatures, so I know what he is going through. So I made him this sympathy card. I know its a parrot image, and not a parakeet image, but I'm sure he'll appreciate it nevertheless. I probably should have looked up how parrots are colored, I colored him like a lovebird, cause that what I know, I don't know how parrots are colored, but I was too lazy/busy/whatever. LOL! Anyway, I can't tell you who designed this bird image because I picked it up at a local scrap booking store where they literally had a child's swimming pool filled with unmounted stamps. It was so overwhelming because you had to dig through this pool of stamps and then try and figure out what the image even was when its backwards on the stamp and there's no picture of it. It was so frustrating. The images were three for a dollar, but I don't know if the experience was even worth the cost savings. LOL!

Anyhow, onto the details of my card. The sketch is from last week's Paper Craft Planet Sketch Challenge, and the papers are Cosmo Cricket. The sentiment is retired Stampin Up! Have a great day! Amy

  7. I think this is very nice of you to make a card even if the image is not the same as the bird that passed on.

    I have often wondered where stores get those huge bins (or pools in your case) full of stamps (or embellishments, etc). I sometimes look but usually, even for a cheap price, I get too frustrated with the digging so I don't even bother.
