Creative Exchange: Shelby and Bailey

Last week my niece’s cat went to Heaven.  Her mom sent me a poor quality picture of the two of them from a cell phone and asked if I could do anything w/ it.   I ended up w/ a  8 X 10 sketch that Shelby will hopefully like. I printed it on canvas so it would resemble a real sketch.   Shelby and Bailey were the best of friends and she is missing her kitty terribly!

  2. Oh Tammy, this is so nice. I have 2 friends who lost pets last week. Truly, they are such a part of the family, and it is so very difficult, but even more so when it’s a child’s pet. I think Shelby will love this.

    Have a wonderful evening!
