(Jeanne J - since I don't have rolled flower dies (yet) I stamped the cs. with my Canvas bg stamp and then hand cut my spiral with curvy scallops hoping it'd resemble petal... it kinda worked!! Think I still need some practice though *Ü*)
Be sure to check out my DT sisters blogs for more inspiration with this week's challenge!! *Ü*
~ R.I.P. Sweet Kitty ~
And for some very sad news.... our beloved girl cat died yesterday. We had her & her brother Raja since they were a few weeks old ... they are 16 years old now, which I realize is quite long for outdoor country cats. But they never went very far, especially the girl cat Squirrel. We named her Squirrel because when she was little, she would stand up and then squat on her hind feet and hold her hard food with her two front paws and eat, just like a squirrel, so cute. She did have a run-in with what we figure was an owl or something as she showed up one day with wounds on both sides of her tail and no hair back there! Poor thing. That was years ago though. She was such a sweet kitty, always wanted to be with us outside. She'd walk with me up the long driveway to our mailbox. When we were working on our remodel in the garage, she would stretch out her front paws up my leg like a toddler wanting to be picked up. She went downhill very fast, in just a matter of a couple of weeks. She became very clingy, wanting to climb up on us a lot more. We noticed in these last couple of days she would fall over sometimes when she'd walk, and something really weird is that she would be fearless and go out to the dog pen and lay down right by the fence, getting nose-to-nose with our dog. Raja is slowing down a bit too, but not as quickly as Squirrel. Here's a pic of our 2 cats, Squirrel is the one laying down. This was taken a few weeks ago. Rest in Peace, sweet kitty.
That’s all I’ve got today. My DD just came up to me and said, “Haven’t you been working on that post for like 2 hours?!” Sheesh, is it that late already? Prolly so! Being too sentimental I suppose. I knew this was coming but It still makes me cry.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun project set. Hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!!
