I love to play along with the CAS Challenge when time allows! I really have about five things on today's to-do list that I ignored so I could create this sweet card.
My repeat, repeat is the sequins.
The stamps are from two of Precious Kitty's Creations stamp sets. I didn't know Jan created stamps! Well, you know I couldn't wait to create with this darling kitty. I created a cat sympathy card for my stash. I struggle with creating any kind of sympathy card spur of the moment so this will be good to have on hand.
I couldn't help thinking of our sweet Little Bit as I created this. She was with us for almost 16 years but recently her kidneys were failing. We had to make the heartbreaking decision to let her go and be in peace. However, our home is not without a cat or two. Two fellas walked out of the woods and adopted us so our hearts are distracted. They had infections and needed to be neutered but that is all behind us and we are settling in!
We never forget the pets that have shared our lives but it's also not a bad thing to have a distraction.

So sorry that you had to let Little Bit go...it's the right thing to do, but never easy. Your new boys knew you needed them!
This is a beautiful sympathy card - the sequins make me think of the sparkle a loved one has around them.

Hard to see though the tears as I read about your loss. It says so much about the love Little Bit brought to your lives, that you would want to share your home with two new kitties. I luv this purrfectly CAS sympathy card. That is just the sweetest kitty profile!

I AM SO SORRY ANGIE!!!!! I did not know you lost your kitty!!! That is so heart wrenching, My little Precious is 14 years old ---- and I can't bear to think of losing her. She and I have been alone together for 14 years.
I would have said something earlier had I known. Please know that my heart goes to you at this time!!
