There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather
The old and frail are young again
Those who are maimed are made whole again
They play all day with each other
There is only one thing missing
They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up !
The nose twitches !
The ears are up !
The eyes are staring !
And this one suddenly runs from the group !
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her into your arms and embrace
your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,
never again to be separated
I sprayed my Watercolour paper with water and added washes of rainbow colours, letting them bleed into one another to make lovely mixtures.
The dog from the Clumber Park Stamp set was going to be waiting on the bridge, so I stamped him with black ink and fussy cut him
Vellum is a transparent, delicate paper which is perfect for Angel wings.I stamped the butterfly from the Victorian garden set onto it, and cut out two wings from the butterfly.I coated the wings with clear glitter.
I adhered the wings to the back of the doggie and used 3D sticky pads to adhere him to the picture
The Mindfullness Stamp set has a perfect "Angels are watching over you" sentiment included which I stamped under the dog.
Please visit the Indigoblu blog to see what my talented team mates have made.

Once a year on the 18th day of April at precisely 12.10am a gazillion sparkling stars fall to earth. These are not your everyday type of Stars they are Beary special. Each Star magically finds its way to a good and much loved teddy bear on earth. The special Stars bring each teddy one wish.
The Teddies hold a Star tightly in their paws as they make their wish, and once the wish is made it disappears.
Aloysius being the oldest and wisest bear always made the first wish, and it was always the same "I wish for Peace on Earth" he said sincerely.
Next it was Princess Tammy's wish "I wish for an end to illness, disease, and disability"
George was the next to pick up his star and make a wish "I wish for everyone to be honest, decent and kind" he said very strongly.
It should have been Bernard's turn next, but he was busy taking a nap.
So Rose made her wish, "I wish for all wrongs to be put right " she roared
I painted a Chipboard plaque with Gesso and when dry I covered it with Grandmas Teacup paint
The ring a Ring of Rosie's rhyme fitted nicely around the edge. I stamped it using a versamarker stamp pad, and embossed with white embossing powder.
The lovely teddies enjoyed being stamped and coloured, and having extra adornments such as scarves, bows, gems etc
Chipboard letters spelled T e d d I e s and I painted them white, and used the flourish from the Nursery Rhyme set to stamp over them with versamarker.I embossed this using blue embossing powder, keeping the blue and white background theme.
The Teddies all shuffled around until they were happy with their positions, and
I adhered them with 3 D sticky pads.
The all important Magical Stars were the finishing touch. I spread Slap It on through the Stars stencil and shook lashing of Unicorn Sparkles over the top.When dry I cut the Stars out and adhered them onto the plaque with the teddies.
You could paint the teddies different colours to give them their own characters. You could also add hats and other clothing and adornments to dress them up!
Thread some white organza ribbon through your plaque to hangs and display as desired.
The Teddies and myself thank you,so much for stopping by to visit us today.
