It’s been a bit of a sad week. Last Friday I fed my sweet little Pumpkin her breakfast, which she ate like a champion, then ran off to do whatever a 19-year-old kitty does…..and she never came back. I can only assume that her little heart gave out and sensing that feeling, went off to die in peace.
She was a great cat…never gave me any trouble, never ran away, never clawed the furniture or jumped up on counters or tables; she slept a lot in her later years but still could catch a mouse like any young cat! We miss her a lot but know she gave us lots of love & pleasure in her long life. When I saw the new set SU came out with called Storybook Friends, I knew I had to get it! I played around with the cat image, not really planning to use it for anything, as I was just using markers and coloring it hurriedly, but I decided to keep it and use it for today’s card, which uses the Freshly Made Sketches sketch 39:
I pulled out some retired DP in fun colors and here’s my card:
(It really doesn’t look like Pumpkin as she has white paws and chest, but as I said, I was just sort of playing around.) I also got to use the Hearts Framelits; new stitched satin ribbon in Summer Starfruit; and the Fancy Fan embossing folder. Sentiment is from Petite Pairs.
Here’s a last shot of Pumpkin (and an embarrassing one of yours truly!) with me on the couch. We were both actually asleep when John snapped this photo. Goodbye, sweet friend!
