AHSC456 Sorry for your Loss

Happy Thursday, peeps!  I have a friend who lost a dear pet recently.  The sketch at Atlantic Hearts was another great way to use up some scraps:

And here we go:

I began by diecutting some strips of Meadow designer paper from Authentique and layering them behind a rectangle of Basic White.  I stamped a little kitty and colored it in Smoky Slate, then fussy-cut it out and popped it up on the panel.  The sentiment, from Pampered Pets, was stamped in Soft Succulent ink.  I added a couple of acrylic dots  and a back layer of Soft Sky to frame it:

I hope it gives her family some comfort!  Thanks for stopping in today!

My cousin's daughter is an amazing young lady.  During her high school years, she developed a tumor in her brain; she had surgery and recovered, but eventually it caused the nerves in her foot to atrophy and she decided to have it amputated.  She has a prothesis, is a wonderful role model for others who have gone through the same trauma, and remains a happy, upbeat mom.  All that to say, when she shared this on FB lately, I just had to was her version of a snow angel, made during the recent snowfall we had here in PA:

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
