OK, this is probably the saddest thing to craft but I made a grave plaque for my kitties grave. She passed away from a very aggressive Tumor under her tongue and bf suggested to make this. So we went to get a chisel that seemed appropriate and took a random  stone from the garden and this is what I ended up with



It is totally unprofessional and the lines of the letters shiver a lot but I like it anyway and it is a quite consoling




And a bonus pic of my kittie,  one of the last ones taken from her. She has been bubbly and liked to socialize and it is really hard to come home and she is not waiting at the door. R.I.P. sweetie

I think that is beautiful, as is your cat.  I think the way it was carved looks like she could have done it with her claws.  I am sorry for your loss.
