Newton in Christmas tree

I had this image colored last year, but never put a card together.  I colored it to match my male Siamese cat that passed away in July...he was only 12 years old, but the vet thinks he had abdominal lymphoma.  I miss him since he was the one who supported me the most and was always there for me.  He was also the naughtiest, and he is the reason we haven't had a Christmas tree in quite a few years either.





Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey - Jovial
Cardstock:  Bazzil; Recollection

I'm so sorry that you lost your sweet kitty this past year and I know that you miss him. What a darling card, with Newton colored like a siamese (and a naughty one at that!!)

Yes, both my fur babies think they own the tree each Christmas so it would be no surprize if I found them this way early in the morning. Great card!

Awwww, I do adore Newton! Sweet card, Lisa Lynn! I am so sorry about your kitty - I never did get over losing my Muffin and that's 13 years ago. He was my best buddy for 18 years. It's hard to take when you lose one that you have such a close bond with. And, yeah, Muffin was a naughty one too. Big hugs to you, my friend.
