Broken Hearted-Remembering Goliath for the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop
Today is actually Day 5 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden. You can still enjoy the festivities and friendship that abounds every year at this time, join the daily games for a chance to win a lovely digi set from Ike's Art, be inspired by the enormous talent and possibly add a project or two to the Linky for a chance to win a prize from one of the many fabulous and generous sponsors involved, as there's still another full day of fun to be had and an extra day to hop around and comment.
The rules are in the above link and be sure to SIGN IN HERE if you haven't already, to be eligible for prizes. Thank you to everyone involved in this Hop, especially Janis who organizes this wonderful event each year. It's my 4th year participating, but I wasn't sure I'd have a project to link up. I was late in even realizing it was Hop time because the death of my sweet Goliath in April was a devastating blow and my crafting and blogging have suffered ever since.
Most people who know me through crafting know that coloring is my "thing", but I have only feebly colored one kitty since Goliath passed and that was for a Guest Design team gig. I've kept up with my work with AuroraWings, but not much else. So I'm sorry to say this is my first project for the Hop and may be my only. Of course it's dedicated to my sweet kitty boy, Goliath. I've got hundreds of digis, regular stamps and cat dies strewn all over my craft room but it wasn't until I saw this project by ValeryAnne that I was able to manage a tribute to my boy. Thank you so much, ValeryAnne! Your Jigsaw cat card gave me this inspiration and without it, there may not have been any project at all.
The kitty on this card is from a post it note stack that Goliath gave to his Daddy for Christmas quite a few years ago. It looks just like him, don'tcha think?Momma got one for herself too and I've used the image on a number of cards given to Daddy from his boy. It was amazing I found it in this hideous clutter, but it was meant to be. I also managed to unearth my Puzzle heart and sentiment dies from Elizabeth Craft and my Spellbinders cascading hearts Card Creator background. The gorgeous red crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art. It's pretty obvious what I did to put this thing together and my post is already WAY longer than intended.
Besides the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden, I'm also adding this to the DL.Art October Linky Challenge, the SUYP October Meowloween/Furrything Goes and 2 Crafty Critter Crazies #31.
