Be Brave

A friend of ours had to put down her kitty last week. She was sick and old and the vet said it was time to let her go. Our friend is so saddened by the loss of her kitty. I remember how bad that can feel. I'm sad for my friend. But I want her to also BE BRAVE and hang on. Getting another kitty will never replace the friend she had, but you can learn to love another friend. And they can make your days brighter.  So I made this card for her.


Kraft card base A2 size.
FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS cart used for Cat1 cut @ 3 1/2"
Keypad overlay Row 1, Column 1


Background papers from K&Co. Berry Sweet
Solid papers from ColorBox textured pad (from Walmart)
Prima Flowers
Green Dew Drop
GLUE DOTS used to adhere flowers & Dew drop
Xyron used to adhere all the kitty pieces
K ANDREW DESIGNS stamp set WINGED THINGS for BRAVE stamp


Now... I'm just going to say this.. put it right out there.... ProvoCraft really could have done a much better job with the cartridge cover and insert leaflet for FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS. I mean really. Come on. Who do I need to speak to at ProvoCraft regarding positive, effective marketing? What's with the dull colors for this cart's cover art? It's depressing. Just my opinion. Everybody has one.   Deep breath.....

So... that's it for today! Who's crafting this weekend? Send me a link in the comment section to what you've been working on. I'd love to come take a looksie! I love all your comments & questions. Please remember if you leave me a question in the comment section, to also leave me your email address so I can get back to you. You guys ROCK!

Smiles! :) Janis

Awww.....our kitty is 16 years old and I know her time is coming. Hugs to your friend. That is a cute, bright kitty on that card. Going to a friend's to craft today so I am sure there will be projects to show for it soon.

Janis,
You did a great job on your card. I love all the pretty colors that you used. I was reading your card while 2 of my children were out searching for our dog and I can completely understand how your friend feels. Thank God we found her, she had been out all night and I was starting to get really worried. I'll be praying for your friend.
