Grave marker for a pet

summerfSeptember 11, 2009

Hi, I am in need of your help and expertise. This morning my granddaughter called to tell me that her pet cat, Oreo died last night. After the tears subsided, she asked me if I could paint a cross to mark Oreo's grave. I can have her grandfather make the cross but I need some suggestions to what I should paint. She wants his name on the cross for sure and maybe some small flowers.

Does anyone have any ideas and/or pictures.

I really appreciate your help.

I have a pattern for a stick rose design that you can paint on just about anything (designed by me). If you would like I will email it to you. Just let me know your email or email me at Im so sorry about their loss!

So sorry to hear about DGG kitty. Hope you come up with some sort of grave marker for her. Sounds like Kay has a design that will work.

Awww! It's so hard on us Grammas when our little ones are in pain. So sorry about her kitty, that's so hard for a little one to understand.

How about doing a tombstone shape with the cross painted on the front--just seems safer than just the cross sticking up from the ground to me.

I'm glad Kay had a design that might work for you. Thanks Kay.

Hi Summer

I emailed you a pattern and another idea I had this morning. Hope you got them okay as I had a little trouble emailing them. Please do not feel obligated to use them though!

Heres a picture of the roses. They are so fun as you can just about adapt them to anything. And if you antique it -- it makes it much more weather resistant.
