Little cuties

I'm sorry I did'nt post the pictures yesterday as I said I would, I could'nt seem to get them to load on the computer.

In the first picture Squeak (Black) is suckling on Bubbles paw.

Yet another day no housework being done. Hey Ho.

I did start to put this card on my blog late this evening, then fell asleep in my comfy chair. Well off to bed now to get some proper sleep.
Sorry pictures are on the bright side, it did'nt matter how I took the the photo the light reflected off of the bow, it is big I know. A bit different for me and not a flower in sight, but I do love a butterfly. I hope you like it too.
Thank you for visiting me again.

Bubble & Squeak

This is Bubble, from Blue Cross. Hopefully we can bring them home next week.
This is Squeak, we think he might have a sight problem as he does'nt see things in front of him, but we could'nt separate them and leave him on his own.

Thank you

Hi to all the lovely people that have left messages, and to all people that have just popped in to have a look at my work.

The family now have dad's ashes back, and we now need to get together as a family to lay dad to rest next to mum at the farm. There is a beautiful garden and a beautiful tree that was planted when mum passed, and dad will be put right next to mum. I know it will be another emotional day, but having been 20 yrs separated they will now be back together again where they belong.

Thankyou you so much for your support, and although we don't know each other on a personal basis, I have really appreciated your comfort, thoughts, prayers and hugs.X

After dad's funeral, we decided to go up to Yorkshire to spend a week with friends. That was on Friday 6th June. On Saturday 7th June, we had a phone call from our son saying one of our cats were poorly. Because of having a few sherries that night with our friends, we could'nt leave that night. We left early Sunday morning. Summer the poorly cat of 17yrs is OK thank goodness. We all think it was her way of saying it's all about me and you get a holiday when I say. ( and I am totally OK with that ), I'm just so glad she is still with us , she had burst a vessel in her bottom after having an upset tummy and there were a few pools of blood which freaked our son, and knowing how I feel about my furry family, he would'nt take the chance of not letting me know. Any way I am back home and I am looking forward to getting back to crafting, I have really missed getting totally lost in my craftroom.

I can only say thank you all again, and I look forward making cards on a regular basis. See you all soon.

Kind regards to you all :-)
