Sad News

The last few weeks have NOT been good for my brother and sister-in-law. They lost both their pets within a few weeks of each other. Both from old age, but still, to have both go is sad. I’m sure their home feels empty! I made this card for them.

Casey, the cat, was a mancoon with attitude. Also the first female cat my brother ever owned. Bear, the dog, was a bull dog and was very well loved. My brother and SIL both had their animals when they met and merging their household may not of been easy, but everyone figure out how to live together. Heck, the loss of Casey a few weeks ago may have contributed to Bear’s rapid decline (but I may be just a sentimental fool).

I send my sincerest sympathies to them.

A note about the card. The sentiment I chose fit in the Fillable Frame 5 image, but I didn’t feel the dots added the right feel to the card, so I ended up using a StampinUp green so I could use a marker to ink the frame stamp and leave off the dots.

  1. Sorry to hear about the loss of their fur babies. They really are like family, with their own unique little personalities. Your card is just beautiful and so special. I love the sentiment, your design and your choice of colors.

  2. Karen, this card is just beautiful! I really love it. I’m sorry your brother and SIL have faced the loss of their pets. I’m sure they appreciated your lovely card.

  3. What a beautiful card! It’s so hard to lose a pet and I’m sure your family will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

  4. Oh, no, you really need to warn me if there’s going to be a PIP (pets in peril) post. I know your brother and sister-in-law will treasure this card. That sentiment is so wonderful, sometimes people don’t understand how much pets are a part of the family. I love how perfectly you placed the die cut so the butterfly is right on the end of the flourish, this is truly a well-done card.
