I have been asked to make a special card for someone whose dear cat/companion has passed away. I find it difficult to make sympathy cards. Looking through my stamps I realised that there were several dog images but fewer cats. After searching the web I found a couple of digital stamps which I thought might be suitable.
The first stamp was a freebie (very generous) and this is where I found it Sliekje digi Stamps. Here is my card –
The second digital stamp set is from Michelle Perkett Studio and here is my card –
You might wonder about the sentiment on this card. Well here is the poem which it refers to –
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When a pet dies – one that’s been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable, fear and worry free.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and the vigor of youth. Those who were abused, hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again just as we want to remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them – someone who had to be left behind. That someone who was kind, gentle and loving. That someone who took the extra step, stayed the extra minute, reached out and touched with love, even once.
The animals all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent, his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face, your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look into the big, trusting eyes of your special love, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together. . . . . . . . . . . . .
I hope one of these cards might lift her spirits a little. We are thinking of you.
Bye for now,
