Picnic Time wth The Cuties......and a further hubby update!

Hello blogland....if any of you are still with me! The last month has been such a chaotic time for me, and the only time I've been getting to blog is either spent doing DT stuff or challenge posts, I do apologise that I've not done any blog visiting, I will try to catch up with you all in the fullness of time! Anyway, the main reason for this post is to tell you all about the Cutie Pie challenge, that started on Monday.....we have a fab theme this time that is:
Teddy Bears Picnic
so why not grab a bear, a nice tartan blanket and some sandwiches and join us.......or you could just click the above link, check out the wonderful cards our DT have made this time and join in the fun,
For my own DT card, I have used this adorable LOTV stamp
Image coloured with promarkers.
The sentiment created using Zipty-do font.
Marianne Creatables die used for flower.
Button from The Range
Paper is an oldie from stash (soooo pretty!!!)
Ribbon from Asda.
Our challenge is sponsored by:
who are offering a fab prize to our chosen winner, and we are lucky enough to have a second sponsor this time:

who are offering some amazing digi stamp prizes to our randomly chosen lots to play for!
I just haven't had the time to think about entering challenges for a few weeks, but I thought I'd give a couple a go...

Finally, Just wanted to let you know that my hubby was discharged from hospital last Wednesday, since my last post he had had a bit of a rough time of it as his wound became infected and had to be partially reopened, the anti-b's disagreed with him and he suffered chronic diaorrhea for five days, which in turn caused his potassium levels to hit the floor causing him to become very confused and suffer hallucinations.....but these wobbles got sorted and the agreed to let him come home. We have a nurse in to him every other day to change his wound dressing, we had to have the Dr out to him on Monday as he had picked up a water infection that we making him feel even more poorly, so its slow progress, but every day he is feeling a little bit better........we would both like to say Thank you so much for the kind and supportive message, they have been really encouraging to read on the "down" days, and its so nice to be able to share a bit of happier news now.
