Bella with Bouquet for Dad at The Stamp Basket

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend and a very Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there - especially those out there that can't be with their children today for whatever reason.

Firstly mahooosive thanks for all your kind and encouraging words regarding my last post - I know I generally end my posts saying how much I appreciate your support but I wanted to say it at the start - I really do appreciate all your support and encouragement.

Secondly I know a number of you will have seen this post from my very bestest blogging (and real life) buddy Claire - words just can't express my feelings - Claire and Mark and two beautiful people and have had the most horrendous time recently that they just don't deserve. I know Claire is so strong and brave and doing so well staying positive - please pop by and say hello and keep them both in your thoughts.

So I'm here today with my regular Sunday morning inspiration for

I've just been over to Claire's Blog and read her update… and so wish they didn't have to go through this…. sometimes life is very unfair. I'm praying that the treatment works well for Mark.
