Lighthouse On An Island

Hi everyone! I've some really sad news to share. This week our cat Buddy who had been struggling with heart disease since the spring went into heart failure so we had to say goodbye (sniff sniff). He was the youngest and the last of our fur-babies so now we are all alone!!!

Today I'm sharing a masculine card I made using one of the images from my 2013 calendar, the Lighthouse On An Island coloring page.

My card base is True Black layered with Kraft then Bowling Shoes patterned paper. The strip is Long Underwear patterned paper layered on Kraft. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. For the sky I sponged Going Grey. To embellish the card I added some twine and a black square brad in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Hey Sweetie,

So sorry to hear about your baby ... :( I know something like that is always hard to go through. We never forget them, but the wonderful memories of having them eventually replace the pain from loosing them.

Prayers and BIG hugs to you.

Your card is lovely, and a wonderful card for the guys.

Oh, Karen, I'm so sorry about your kitty - it's always so hard to lose a fur baby. My kitty, Blossum, was the sweetests of the sweet and he too had heart disease and I lost him in September of 2010 - he was 10. I still have Chewey, who is 16 and Missy, who is 13.

Hugs, kathy
