This week's Blogger's Challenge Friday theme was Sympathy. While sympathy cards aren't always "fun" to make, they are certainly appreciated by those who receive them. I chose to do a pet themed card and unfortunately, this was a fitting card for us here on the farm this week. Last Friday night, one of our wild farm kitties was hit by a car. She was a solitary little long haired yellow miss named Curly Two. She spent most of her time in or around the pastures, or around the big hay bales. She didn't usually come near the house or the road, so Alan fed her daily out at the hay. I made this card in honor of miss Curly Two.
The kitty stamp is by Claudia Rose and is watercolored, and then over-painted with Twinkling H2Os. She really shimmers. The paper is a Fabriano note card and envelope (from DickBlick), which I also stamped with a flower from the main image. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
I poked around the other Blogger's Challenge Friday sites today and there are some really wonderful ideas being shared. If you'd like to visit them as well, you'll find a complete list of participants and their blogs here.
Have a peaceful weekend!
PS: Edited to add photo of Curly Two. You can see Curly on her firetruck, here. (See why we had to call them Curly and Curly Two? Spittin' image...)
