FYI - I used Clipart/Weaves/Weave33-i for the border, then scaled and distorted it slightly to fit the piece of material. There might be more similarities to puppies and other pets that will work well for your own situation, but these just seemed to fit my case very well. And it worked ...
garylmast - Me too. We have been married a short two years. She was nervous at my 55th high school reunion recently, but no cat fights broke out. I behaved myself.
scubanimal - Yes it is. My first marriage was a disaster, and I stayed single for most of my life after that. This one is making up for all of that.
dwilli9013 - You're very welcome. Do something nice for her with this idea, and watch her melt.
Savannahdan - Yes, I am - on both counts - now that I am so blessed to have her in my life.
