Pears ATC

Well so much for my being "Creative every day!" Yesterday I had something happen that was upsetting so I was not able to do anything-I was in a somber mood and was in shock all day.
I have had a Guinea Pig, Rosie, for about 2 and 1/2 years and I was doing lots of purging and organizing in my home and I went out to empty the trash and found her cage in disarray (it was outside on our porch) and she was nowhere to be found. I looked out to see her in the middle of the street-Later I saw a few stray dogs so we think they are the ones who got her. I was shocked, sad.......and had to tell my kids, and that is hard. I am still in shock-I was the one who pretty much took care of her, and I miss her. Each time I went in and out of the door I always talked to her and she always "Squeaked" back at me. Its hard not hearing that or seeing her by the front door anymore :( I am still a bit heartbroken.
Anyway, I was able to do an ATC today at least. I used one of the new pear stamps from the Stampinback line over at I Brake For Stamps. I used Radiant Rain daubers for the background.

This is beautiful! You have me nervous-my dd left me her two minituare gerbils and a chocolate lab pup. I will be checking them every 10 minutes!!! So sorry about your pet-not fun to clean, but when they are gone, they leave a void.

Such a gorgeous ATC. As always your work is awesome. So sorry to hear about Rosie. How sad!! I bet it was hard to tell the kids. Hope that time will ease the pain.

I am so sorry about your guinea pig. Call animal control next time you see those strays!

But I am a lover of pears and this piece is fabulous.
