Gone, but not forgotten.

CASology #104 might have been the first challenge I didn't participate in.  We're thinking of our lost pets this time of year.  Two of the best buddies any pet-owner could ask for and we were blessed by their presence for 17/18 years, respectively.

Calvin and Hobbes were a surprise gift for Tom before we were married.  Yet, the kids and I fell in love so immediately, we couldn't let him take them home with him!  Before their 4th birthday, they got feline diabetes.  First Cal, then Hobbes, too.  But, with insulin twice daily, they lived beautiful, nearly perfect lives.

 
This one's for you, guys:

So glad you were all blessed with many years of companionship. They look like darlings. And your card is a lovely tribute to them. Wonderful use of those images, and the bow finishes your card perfectly. Sweet card. Bev
