Man card and altered Canvas

Made this card today with Fathers Day and my father in laws birthday in mind.  He is rather unfortunate: Father's Day and his birthday are very close together!

I have also altered a little A5 sized canvas in memory of my Herbie.....

The butterflies are supplied by Nanny Maggie, check out her creations HERE, the poem is by Henry Willett (Google it for the full version, after getting out the hankies!), the little glass bottle with his hair is from Create with Kate and the dog tag is Herbie's own.  I stamped some little paw prints around the edge and added his photo in a lace frame.
