L is for Lindsey - A special tribute at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

 Hello friends and welcome.
This fortnight at the
we come together to celebrate the life of our dear friend and one of our own,
Lindsey, who lost her courageous battle with cancer.
Those who were fortunate to know her knew she was a great lover
of cats, books, Star Trek, Dr. Who, wine and snark. Also, she was an absolute
master of CAS cards!
For this challenge, Edna and my Sisters invite you to create a project
that is inspired by our sister, Lindsey. Whether that be an image of cats,
books, alcohol (because she loved a good cocktail too!), the color purple,
(a favorite of hers!), or perhaps to case one of her many brilliant cards,
we'd love to see how she inspired you and touched your life.

For my card, I went the CAS route (very hard for me, as I love my layers!)
and also featured this adorable kitty sitting in a box full of hearts:



Here's a close up:


The kitty and cardboard box were colored in neutral shades of gray and
brown, respectively, and the hearts in a few shades of both blue and purple.
A blue mat, a purple card base, and since Lindsey loved a good pun,
 a punny sentiment finishes my card.

I am missing my friend. Our private messages, talking about anything and
everything. I never had the opportunity to meet her in person. I actually had
 made plans in January 2020 to drive up to Canada to 
finally meet Lindsey, Donna and Barbara, 
but then Covid took over the world and screwed up those plans.
I still have every intention to make a trip up there.
(Perhaps next year ladies? If the border is open, that is!)

Please join Edna and my sisters to celebrate the life of Lindsey, and
link up your projects at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

Hugs,

Absolutely fabulous card! You know how much Duncan meant to Linds and she would have loved this card! Thanks for playing along with our challenge as well at Color Hues. Hugs! I think Jules captured my thoughts about Covid perfectly too!
