Simple and clean

One of my sets of in laws lost their pet this past week. Taz was a big boy. He weighted 28 pounds! He was greatly loved, and lived 14 fab years being spoiled by them. He was my FIL's baby. It was a little sudden, as he got sick on Sunday, had surgery to fix what looked like a cyst, poor thing didn't make it thru the recovery after surgery. I had seen the With Sympathy set from Paper Trey Ink, and being a pet lover, I knew I wanted the set for pets as well. I sat down tonight to make them a card letting them know we're thinking about them. It's so hard to lose someone you love, and fur babies touch your lives in ways that can surprise you sometimes. I thought this cat from TAC's Playful Kittens made for a sweet cat to put with the nice sentiments from PTI. I used Sand's of Time paper line from TAC.
Trey had a birthday party on Sat for a fellow classmate. I love this boy set from Elzybells. Trey loves skateboarding. Makes for perfect cards for little boys. I didn't put a lot of bling on there, because I have yet to find a male in my world who appreciates that! LOL! The paper is from a K&Co set that I haven't seen at Michael's recently. The sentiment is from a retired TAC set called Hang loose. Solid cardstock is from SU, Ballet Blue, and Tangerine In color.
Both images where colored with Koh-i-noor and primsa colored pencils and rectangle nesties.

Sorry to hear about the loss of the cat - what a hard thing to be going through. Your sympathy card is perfect for them and will hopefully bring them some comfort.

Your bday card is darling. Funny I just saw a boy image on another blog and made the comment it's nice to see for a change as I keep seeing so many princesses and faires everywhere! Love the colors!
