I must say I am so Happy that it is finally the weekend..
I don't know if you hear the news about my Cat..  She has has been in
the Hospital all week..  I have been just sick over it!!

 Well the good news is that she got to come home today..
 Which makes this weekend even better..
She is doing well and eating.. YEA!!

I came up to my craft room to do this post and she is here
 by my side just purrring away..   Sweet music to my ears..


When I read what this weeks Tag Tuesday theme was!
And then saw Louise had  made a beautiful tag of a four Legged friend,
 it made me tear up just a little.. 
Thinking of my four legged friend in the hospital.

So I was going to make a TAG with a Cat on it!  My four legged sweetie..
Well you know how that goes..  What you plan and what I ended up
with are to totally different things..   Does that only happen to me!

I just love this Quote,  I have it on a plaque in our office given to me by on old
friend..  And the minute I saw this image I knew I wanted to use it!
I am pretty sure I got it from The Antique Image..

As you can see NO Cat any where on this Tag!
Sorry,  I just couldn't come up with anything..

I added some flowers and lace..

A punched a little  butterfly with a little bling.

And I know you will be shocked..  But I added a little stitching also.

So that is my Tag for this weeks challenge..
To get all the details or to see what all the other talented ladies came up with
you can hop over to Kard Krazy!

Well I better get off this computer and go make some Dinner..
And give my kitty another big hug..

Thanks you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Linda

So glad to hear that Mittens is home, YAY, happy happy happy!
I might said that before, but THIS TAG is REALLY my favorite, so pretty!! Keep it, I want to go to your place and see it in person, LOL!
Yes, that's life, at one point of my life, a friend told me "Kirsty, don't plan anything, you are not in control" I am pretty sure I still can't do that, but when I am in my down time, this is one of the thing I would remind myself.

Jacqueline said...

What an inspiration you are Linda, this tag is just so appealing and oozes your sweet shabby style!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

I am sooooo glad your cat is back home and doing better...was it Mittens or Cuddles and I bet it was a bladder infection or something to do with the kidneys?...cats are so sensitive in that area. Anyway,,,what a relief to know your cute kitty is on the mend. Now for your gorgeous tag,,,what showstopper!...Just beautiful. Next week you know we all want to see a tag made with one of your fotos of the darling kitties don´t you:)

Sue said...

Hello Linda.
Just have to say I love the shabby chic effect on your Tag, you have done a great job.

Tracy said...

Oh wow Linda! This tag is just stunning! I love the sweet story behind it too. Glad your cat is better. :-) I just love everything you put on this tag. The image, that great script you used for the sentiment, and all the pretties. It's really wonderful!

Stella said...

It's good to hear that your furry friend is recovering and ok :). And maybe she's not visible on your tag; she is safely tucked away in your heart :). And your tag? Gorgeous; I have a place in my heart for everything vintage!
Enjoy your Sunday!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog:)
This tag is beautiful. Wonderful quote too!

JeanFB said...

This is beautiful, Linda! I love that vintage image, and the lovely stitching, the trim, the dimension.....

Happy to hear about your kitty recovering! I have been back and forth to the vet with my little boy cat, too - one of his back claws was practically torn from his foot, and the vet said we could try the conservative approach to save his toe. Of course, it entailed my husband and I putting on a bandage every few days... can you imagine how that went, LOL?! But we had success - he's all healed. What we won't go through for our furry purry babies, LOL!

Louise (KardKrazy) said...

Linda, I'm never disappointed when I visit your blog. Your vintage tags are always a delight and today's is no exception. It's just lovely!

**Farrah** said...

Glad your kitty is ok. I know how sad it is when they're sick.
