CAS on Friday Challenge #113 & Muse


Hi there ~
Now that our children are grown and off on their own, our fur-baby, Movado, has become the focus of our love and attention...He was with us for 16 years (a very old man for his breed) and sadly, we had to say goodbye to him yesterday.
I was going to post this card yesterday, but instead spent most of the day with hubby and a box of Kleenex...what can I say...here is a photo of our little prince:


If you're old enough to remember The Little Rascals, then you're probably thinking that he looks just like Petey :) Movado was a great friend, and we will miss him very, very much!

***************************

The theme for the current challenge at CAS on Friday is 'Exotic'. While rummaging through my stash, I came across this PTI stamp set that I purchased from Laurie Willison several weeks ago...I hope these Palm Prints are exotic enough to meet the criteria for the challenge. I am also entering this card into this week's Muse Challenge ~ Anything Goes! 


This is a 2-step stamping set so I used dye inks and gold EP. I die cut the sentiment in gold foil, added a few splatters and that was it!



Wishing you all a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by,

This card is so elegant and beautiful - it's amazing how gold embossing just takes a design up a notch! I'm so sorry for your loss. It will be a big adjustment without Movado. Thinking of you. So glad you joined us at our Anything Goes week at Muse!

My sweet friend... I do know how sad you are, and yet you've created a beautiful card to make another smile. That's how special you are, always.
LOve the tropical leaves, and how beautifully you've colored them - exotic, indeed!
Petey is exactly who I thought of whenever you talked about him ...I'm sure Movado was even more darling, and lovable. He will be loved, and remembered forever, I'm sure of it!
Biggest hugs, and love, for you and Mike, and the entire family...

Oh Barb, I'm so sorry to hear about Movado's passing. My heart breaks for you both. Our fur babies are such a huge and amazing part of our lives and it's so devastating when we have to say goodbye. Moved was such a gorgeous boy and I am sure he had an amazing life with you guys. Big hugs to you.

My heart aches for you as you have sent Movado to the rainbow bridge. I understand needing a box of Kleenex nearby. Presently I have a foster dog who is 19, Digger, a Shih Tzu mix. Doing fine at the moment, but getting choosy about what he wants to eat! Take care.
