Needing some support?

We were driving into town yesterday through a remote, rural area with no nearby homes when I thought I saw a fox by the side of the road. As we got closer, I saw it was a beautiful, small dog, wet to it’s belly in the snow and shivering! There were tire tracks nearby like someone had pulled over and dumped her. ūüė¶ Unfortunately, this is not uncommon in the country. We have a small cat that wandered in about a month ago after being dumped by our home. It just breaks my heart that people can be so cruel to abandon a former pet to fend for itself in the woods in the middle of winter! This little baby is just so sweet! She still cries and seems homesick but it seems she’s¬†starting to settle into her new home. She might be a cross but I think she looks a lot like a Finnish Spitz. Leave me a message if you think you recognize her breed!

I saw a card a while back with a sentiment that said something like ”heard you could use some support” and I instantly thought about the vintage corset digis in my collection. I made my own version of the sentiment and busted this card out:

I used the CPS sketch #121: 
The corset image is in the public domain and you can find it here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:AuBonMarcheCorsetsPage4e.gif  I colored it with watercolor pencils.
