Last week my friend Patti's cat, Dickens, passed away.
I just had to make something for her because losing a pet is like losing someone in the family.

She works in a library and loves tags and book marks, so I created this for her.  She might see this before it arrives in the mail, but then maybe she will cry now instead of later.

I don't know why it came out blue, but you can see the true colors in the following pictures.

I didn't want to just sent a tag, so I popped it onto the front of a card and wrote inside.

I used a couple retired sets but love them!
One is the "Canvas" background
The other set is called "Meow Meow" from 1998!

I used a picture she posted to try to re-create how beautiful he was.  This does not do him justice.  After stamping and coloring, I punched him out with the oval punch and then stamped him with versamark and dunked it into the clear embossing powder.  He's shiny!

I used the new Photopolymer Stamp set "Designer Typeset" to stamp out his name.

I hope she loves it!
