Cat Bath


A friend of mine, who was around and supportive of me 10 years ago when my first husband passed away - lost her own battle last week to Liver and Colon Cancer and this is the card i have made to send to her family - i don't do Sympathy cards, i do Thinking Of You and part remembering - hence the image, my friend had a house with a stream at the bottom of her garden and i remember every time i went over, you would see all sorts of birds (including ducks and kingfishers) and she had a cat, that her husband called 'Cooking Fat' - i'm sure you'll work out, what he really meant !!
