Hello all.. thank you so much for visiting me today. I would love to tell you a little bit about my card… just a few months ago my dear friend Crissy had lost her very beloved Miska her German Sheppard – It is so sad if you loose one of your pet family members.
I wanted to make her a very special card but noticed… i do not have ANY stamps that are appropriate for that occasion.
But than i saw this stamp set in the Stampin up catalogue (C is for Cat – it is currently free with a $50 order) and i knew i wanted to make a sympathy card with my Tilda holding kitten (Pet Collection 2009).
The card was worked using a sketch my dear friend Jacque came up for this months sketch challenge over on the Magnolia-lioucs Highlights' blog. All what i have done is rotate the sketch, to make it work for me. Thank you sweetie.. i love your sketch.
