Get Well & Sympathy

**This is my second post for today.  Please scroll down or click here for my CAS-ual Fridays/Jay Gee's Nook post.***

Almost missed the Paper Smooches Sparks deadline again but I am sneaking in the last few hours.  I was inspired by the grey and peachy pink colours and the heart.  The mug is paper pieced from some textured Bazzill paper although you can't see it too well in the picture.  I had a few different ideas for this picture but I didn't have time to get to them today as I ended up making a couple of sympathy cards for clients at work.  Not my favourite job but Darwin and Jeter were pretty special dogs and I wanted their owners to know that their sweet boys touched us too.

Supplies for Get Well card:
Cardstock:  (White) Handy Hippo, (Grey) Bazzill, (Calypso Coral) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Mug, shadow and swirls from Hot Concoctions, Heart from Falling for You, Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Calypso Coral, Basic Grey) Stampin' Up

Supplies for sympathy cards:
Cardstock:  (Kraft) Gina K, (Early Espressol) Stampin' Up

Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Swirly alphabet) Cuttlebug, (Block Alphabet) PTI

Everyone should get a sympathy card when they lose a furbaby. :( That is a really sweet, and I am SURE VERY appreciated gesture!
