Good evening to all my fellow crafters out there in blogland.
All too fast the past week has disappeared...today is Thursday,
therefore it is once again time for another challenge at

Thank you Crafty Ribbons.
Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that a few weeks ago,
John and I had to make the heart-breaking decision to have our beloved
kitty cat, Pagliacci (Pally) put to sleep. I am still grieving for him, as for
15 years he had been such a gentle and loving companion, and now
there is a huge emptiness about our home. Of course we love
Cookie, our remaining kitty, but he is not an affectionate cat,
so I miss the big 'cuddle sessions' I had with dear Pally.
Our vet, Sarah, had grown to love Pally...he was her first feline patient after
moving to our area, and sadly for her, her own kitty, Ninja, died as a result
of snake bite just 2 days before Pally's passing. Sarah spent an hour
with us that morning and was very compassionate, so I made this
card for her to say "thank you", and also to write a few
words of comfort for her loss of Ninja.
Our Pally was white and ginger, and Ninja was a grey,
striped tabby, so they are both on my card.

Inside my card where I wrote a note of "thank you", and also of
condolences to Sarah. (sorry the photo is blurry).
