Sometimes, Said Pooh

Every time I get an order for this stamp, I say "Sometimes, said Pooh" as though I'm reading it to a little person.  Ahem, I guess you have to be here....

I took some photos of our kitty at the top of the stairs a few days before he died and used one to create an image which I cut with my Silhouette Cameo digital cutter.  I used the Lincoln paper because it's made from many of the same colours as kitty was.

It's a very quiet house today.

This card is for our vet, Dr. Bradford Bradbury (oops!) at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, who took over Tiger's care while Dr. McLean is on maternity leave (and looks way to young to be even a high school graduate). But she said all the right things when we needed to hear them most. I can't thank her enough for that.

Card Details: The VersaFine colour was Smokey Gray
{August 23, 2013 update:  This kitty shape is now available as a digital die cut here.}

Here are the thumbnail links to the products.

    Beautiful card and such a true quote ...

  2. Beautiful card, and I love that stamp, it is one of my favs. How thoughtful of you to make it for the vet.

  3. Sorry to hear your sad news, Suzanne. You have found a lovely way to honour Tiger!

  4. I love this card. It's so beautiful.

  5. You have made me cry today too!
    I love how you made a card of your cat - sure wish I knew how to do that for our 'Precious'
    The Pooh sentiment is perfect.
    Big Hugs, for you Suzanne {{{{{ }}}}}

    I have a big soft spot for anything A.A. Milne, and have the pleasure of owning the quotes you've penned. I have no doubt the vet will be touched with your thoughtfulness at a time when you are mourning Tiger's loss. You've done a beautiful job with this card. It's precious.

  7. Sorry for your loss, Suzanne. Your card is a wonderfully personal tribute to Tiger.

  8. That is a wonderful, touching tribute to Tiger Suzanne. I think Dr Bradford will really love this card. ((((HUGS))))

  9. What a wonderful card!! Wish you'd make the cat image frame into a die -- it'd be fantastic for so many things and a great way to celebrate Tiger's life again and again.

  10. Sorry for your loss Suzanne. Your combination with the addition of a few photo's will make a beautiful scrapbook page.

  11. Lovely card and a thoughtful gesture.

  12. So very sorry to hear of Tiger's loss, Suzanne. He was a beautiful puss and you have created a wonderful tribute to him. I lost Marcel last November and still miss him very much
