An Ode To Scruffy....

Okay.  Well, not really an ode so much as a tribute.  Truth be told, I don't really have enough experience with Scruffy to list all of his great accomplishments or character traits.  I might have sat in his chair a time or two.....and, carried his hair home on my socks or black pant leg.  I'm pretty sure he ran and hid each time I entered his home (and, maybe secretly hissed at me wishing I would go away so he could have his human back?).

I created this card to celebrate my friend's birthday and pay tribute to Scruffy (who has recently passed).  Dear Friend--you know who you are--while you celebrate your birthday this year, in such an amazing place, my wish for you is to be filled with joy of all that has been and hope for all that will be!  I love you and hope you are having the trip of a lifetime!!

To create my kitty card, I used this great image from I Brake for Stamps--Cats and Buildings. I love all of the different expressions on the cats.  I singled out the front cat and tried to make him look like Scruffy using distress markers.  For the rest of the image, I used purple water colors.  You can't really see it in the photo, but added some Wink of Stella to Scruffy so he would stand out as special--just like he was to my pal.

To complete my project, I added a hand drawn frame and sentiment then a few clear star stickers.

If you are also a cat lover and want to add this image to your stash, you can pick it up over at I Brake For Stamps!  Be sure to say a sweet hello to Ms. Della while you're there!  TTFN--

Be awesome, Jane
