Sympathy for loss of your cat

Everyone who knows me knows my love for animals. As one who has owned and loved and said goodbye to many beloved pets, I know the heartache one feels when they lose a furry friend. As a cardmaker, I try very hard to reach out to those who have lost a pet with a sympathy card. I don't like the fact of making them, but I do know how much I've appreciated the acknowledgement of loss in my own life, and so I try to pass the expression of sympathy on to others when they lose a pet.

Today's card is for the loss of a kitty. I really liked this week's Mojo Monday Layout challenge that Julee provided and used it for this sympathy card. Below is Julee's layout challenge #178:

The sentiment is a lovely pet sympathy set from Papertrey Ink. The cat stamp is from Stampin' Up! "C is for Cat" set and I stamped it with Versafine Sepia ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The lovely background paper is from K & Company. I'm not sure who makes the pawprint ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today.




  1. This is so sweet....I have a friend who recently had a kitty loss....it hurts so much.

  2. Jennifer this is so pretty. I also don't like making pet sympathy cards, it's very sad. I really like the PT sentiment... I may have take a peek over at PT.

  3. This is so sweet and a thoughtful card. Losing a pet is not easy and until you own one the reality is even harder. Very thoughtful.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
