Puppy Love to the Vets

Hi Crafty Friends,

My mum had to put her 16 year old dog down last week and she was really pleased with how sweet the Vet and staff were to her, bringing her a cuppa and making sure her little Benson was comfy in his basket and so forth. She was saying how she wanted to buy them a tin of biscuits for morning tea to show her appreciation and I said I could make a card for her to take along too. Apparently they all loved it (and the Scottie Terrier shaped shortbread biscuits and tin we luckily happened to find).

I got this digi from a place called something like Can You Dig It but I have googled and can no longer find them, sorry as I know some of you would like him, he's such a sweetie isn't he? 

The flower and pearls are from Flourish with a Bling who have a sale on in February - every product is only $2 each, if interested please click on the name to be taken to the store to check out the bargains.
