Challenge no. 86 at Simply Create Too (mid-post)

Hi Stamping World,

The weekend is here....Yippie. Yet, my heart does go out to Texans and Okies (that's not offensive right?), who are suffering having to start over and for those who have lost loved ones. How my heart ached for the father who could not be of any help to his daughter as her car tilted over in the flooded waters, when she was on her way home. We're supposed to be there for our children and I can't imagine how tough this is for her dad. There were many sad stories. Cell phones allow us to reach out and seek help, but they also mean that the opportunity for our loved to say last words is also a fact.

My DT submission for Simply Create Too challenge no. 86, Keep It Simple is a sympathy card for a cat-lover. Pet loss cards should be simple. We share such special relationships with our furry companions. Everyone has their own way of handling the loss. Some of us mourn deeply and can't imagine replacing their companion. Others do get another one to make new memories with. I have rarely been without an animal in my life. I run from ant farms, gerbils, birds, fish, cats, dogs. The only one I've not had the pleasure of enjoying...I think, is a snake. Oh, and ferrets are quite popular, but no go for me.

So, this kitty and paws is from an Art Obsessions. There's no name listed, so let's just call it Cat Lady. There are six other cute stamps in the set. I had to fussy cut the little booger and I'm happy to say I'm mastering the art gradually.  I'm sure I'll get around to using some of the other more fun images.  The sentiment is from Stampin' UpAlthough it takes me a bit of time to get a layout for CAS cards, I'm always attracted to
them .

This card will join my sympathy stash and I hope I won't need to use it anytime soon.

Hope you find some time to play this weekend. I got some new small hauls from Papertrey, Simon Says Stamp and Michaels and my mojo has kicked in. It should make for some regular posts.
