Rest in Peace Rusty!


I felt the need to post this separately from my crafty card blog posts. OMGoodness...Hope you all don't mind...this hits close to home as we share our lives with God's creations.  


This is a photo of a dear old friend that Bruce and I have gotten to know very well over this past year including his brother and sister Santana and Shay. 

Bruce did most of the daily cleaning and release to pasture for these three loving beasts. But we took Rusty in when Santana and Shay would go riding with owners, Chris and Jerry on camping trips throughout the summer.

Rusty was 33 years old and rode thousands of miles in his 18+ years with his family. However, as seniors, we have to stay home and take it easy, enjoy the retirement years.


We took him in with our herd (Dallas and Duncan) so he wouldn't be so lonely when family was out of town.

We lost a good friend this weekend but his memory will always live on.

RIP “Rusty Bucket”

We will miss YOU!

Hugz...Aunt Cath and Uncle Bruce

For the celebration I decided to make a Christmas card since it is just around the corner and I added a darling shaker card element.

My project features "Ski Star Tilda" from the brand new 2014 Waiting for Christmas collection. Not certain what her official name is yet but I will update this post when the information becomes available.


I used some new papers from Doodlebug Designs and lots of new die cuts. I colored Tilda with Copics to coordinate with my papers and embellies and I added a bit of glitter to her hat. The shaker has a mixture of Diamond Dust, Glitter and Flower-soft for the snow.


Here’s a close up of Tilda. I had a lot of fun coloring her.
