Hello there, my lovely friends......I hope all is fine and well with you all.
It has been a very quite blog time for me as last year ended, almost as difficultly as it started. Very sadly, my brother lost his fight with cancer on the 30th December. He had been diagnosed with it being in his lungs, liver and brain, and it had just started to attack his stomach too. Just before Christmas he was admitted to St Catherine's Hospice in Crawley, and we spent a lot of Christmas day there with him. He really was in such a lot of pain, so we do take so much comfort in knowing that this pain has now gone. There was never going to be any other outcome and he is now at peace, his funeral will be this Wednesday.
Richard would've been one of the first to say that life must go one, and go on it must. Today we have the inspiration post for the current Cutie Pie challenge. Out theme this time is
and we would like to see your Cute cards with the addition of Kraft card/paper - easy!

I played a Cutie Pie Challenge # 95. I do it just this way, because I've already mailed two times, but get nothing back. Would be a shame, as the price of my nose passes. This is my email address: email@example.com
I hope to hear from you. Thanks in advance.
