I was finally emotionally ready to ink up the kitty image in Theresa’s new set for Gina K. Designs Purrr-fectly Delightful. After having to put our sweet Chica to sleep last month the week before Christmas, made this set bitter sweet for me. When I was finally ready to stamp with it, I made a thank you card to give to our vet who took care of her for the past 2 1/2 years. I used Cosmo Cricket nutmeg paper and pure luxury cardstock in Green Apple, Chocolate Kiss and layering weight ivory. I finished off my card with a handmade crochet flower.
Here are the thoughtful cards and gifts we received in the weeks to follow from our vet. Everyone in the office signed the card on the left and as if that wasn’t enough, they sent us this wall plaque with Chica’s paw prints, how special is that? I cried almost as much as I did the day we made that really hard decision, mostly from the grief I still had, but also out of gratitude for this wonderful memento of our sweet Chica who we had for 9 years, and was part of our family. The picture of her on the right is one I enclosed in the card to them. They have albums in their office of cards they’ve received from other customers so I’m sure mine will be placed in there too, along with her photo. We are so blessed to have been able to take her back with us and took her out to our property to bury her after – I am sad she won’t be able to live in our next house, I know she would have loved it. But at least she will be with us in spirit and memories.
Here is a card I received from Beth Scott who read about Chica on StampTV. Isn’t that so sweet of her? She has animals herself, so she completely understands how deeply sad I was over Chica and wanted to let me know she was thinking of me. She also has had to make the difficult decision we did. I am so grateful. Thank you, Beth if you’re reading my blog!
