Rest In Peace, My Dear Furry Friend Tigger.....



On July 25th at approx 10:30 am, Tigger passed away peacefully in my arms as I held and talked to him.  I have lost many pets over the years, however this is one that hit me so very hard.  Tigger was a mighty cat, strong of will and character.  At 26.4 lbs he was a tremendous presence and the alpha male in our home.  Even our large dogs respected and feared this mighty cat.  I rescued Tigger at 3 months old in July of 1999 and we had 12 wonderful years together.  Tigger was a fighter and a lover.  I have so many wonderful memories of our time together and all his funny quirks and antics through the years.  It was really hard to put Tigger to sleep and relieve him of his misery, however I know exactly how he lived and wanted to live.  He would not have liked all the battery of tests and treatments that I would have had to put him through and with little hope of the recovery I so desperately wanted and needed for him.  My head says we did the right thing and that Tigger is now romping and playing at Rainbow Bridge and will wait for me there, he suffers no more.  But my heart is broken in a million pieces and I want him back and here with me.  I will always remember the moment when I had him wrapped in one of our towels and the vet gave him the medicine that made him a little sleepy before giving him the final injection.  I held him like a baby and he looked over to me and put his face on my chest.  I talked to him and told him how much I loved him and told him there would be plenty of tuna and treats where he was going.  I think he liked that.

When I looked at Tigger, what I always saw was my little boy in his jammies............Goodbye my furry friend.......................you will always be carried in my heart for as long as I live......................until we meet again.......................

Summer Flowers


Our challenge over at the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog was Summer Flowers.  Since I have so many hydrangeas blooming all over out yard, I picked this image to color with my copics.  It is a gorgeous Anna Griffin stamp.  I used my Spellbinder dies to cut and mat the image and added some pearls and rhinestones to set it off and used some pretty purple ribbon to bring it all together.  The background paper is Dotted Swiss by Bazzill.  This was such an easy card to make and I just love how it turned out.

Stick Pins Anyone?

I have been making stick pins for my cards and have found I am making so many that I decided to list them in my Etsy Store.  These are a lot of fun to make and my favorite set is pictured above.  These are great for card makers, scrapbookers, and altered artists alike.  If you are interested in purchasing a set or two my Esty Store is Kreative Kim.  I have more sets to list, so please keep checking back.
