Best Friends

Hello and good morning

I've always had cats and I also owned a couple of German Shepherds which I absolutely adore!
Now I no longer have my beautiful dogs or the cats from those days... Though as you know we still have a few rescue cats, but I miss my dogs soooo much
My dogs always got on well with the cats ... Cat's rule! 

This is an old photo of my dog Holly with my cat Lisa


Why am I telling you all this? Well, because it is the basis of today's card... 
When I saw that Try It On Tuesday's challenge is silhouettes -
It gave me the idea

You know I love using silhouettes, they feature on many of my cards and here's what I came up with


I cut the silhouettes out on the Cameo and did a little sponging


 Amazingly (for me) this turned out a one layered card with a little stamping and some punched out hearts


I really hope that one day I will be reunited with my pets ...

Wishing you a lovely day - free from blogger problems at least!

I too love my animals and have very fond memories of having pets in my younger days. This card is a real tribute to yours. So effective with the light sponging and the black silhouette against it. The most perfect sentiment for the theme x Yes that happens to me sometimes too...when I am actually not trying to do a one layer card they can end up being one!

I always love it when you add a kitty silhouette to your cards and now you've got a doggie one too! YAY! They are so cute together and the soft ombre effect you got with your inking makes a lovely backdrop for them. Hugs!

I love that photo of your wonderful friends! It's so sad that they have such short little lives, that's why we have to make sure that every one of their days is a good one! Great inspiration for your card and I love how you incorporated the silhouette theme! Love it! hugs :)
