One of my joys was taken away this past week. My little fur ball that we had for 12 years suddenly passed away. He was big part of our family and is greatly missed. This was very unexpected and I have not been in a creative or joyous mood. However, I am trying hard to find the Joy again and remember the good times.
The vet we were taking him to has been absolutely wonderful and I wanted to make a Christmas card to thank them. The theme over at Inspiration Emporium is Joy and I thought this was a perfect word for the card.
I wanted to make the card personal and decided to use the most recent picture we had of our cats. The other difficult thing about loosing him was he also left behind a brother who also misses him greatly. You can see both of them in the picture under our Christmas Tree.
I wanted to really highlight the picture so I used The Tim Holtz tissue tape technique found in the Compendium of Curiosities volume 2. This is this weeks Challenge over at L3 Studios. Go check it out for a chance to win a gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp.
As my husband told me these memories of our little "boy" that make me so sad now will eventually be happy Joyous memories. Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you find Joy in many things this Christmas season and the upcoming year!
