Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Say You're Sorry
The adventures with Buddy the dog continue...He seems to be a connoisseur of overgrown grass and there is one particular yard where he likes to stop and act like a cow and munch on the grass. I had him on his leash and allowed him to walk up into the yard a bit (still holding onto his leash), when I heard a knocking on the window. There stood a woman, in a robe, motioning for us to get off the yard. I tried to make a "munching" motion with my hand - just so she didn't think he was doing his business in her yard - and we walked away. I was embarrassed and a bit angry since Buddy wasn't doing any harm. At the same time I realized that not everyone loves dogs like I do and it was, after all, her grass and her yard. So then I decided that an apology might be a nice way to make things feel better. I really didn't want to walk by her house in the mornings wondering if she was looking out the window, annoyed, every time she saw us. So I came home and made this quick little card and put it in an envelope that said "a note for you" on the outside. On my way to the grocery store I dropped it in her mailbox. It was signed "Buddy & Michelle." I don't know how she felt about the note or if it changed her feelings towards us - I hope so. What I do know is that it made Buddy and I feel better - at least we said we were sorry.
It's no surprise that I love the Friends Fur-ever stamp set! I combined the images with the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I find it easiest to cut out images like the dog and bones using a hobby blade - it's much quicker than trying to maneuver scissors. The dog dish is simple to cut out with scissors. I hope you like it!
