New Year Candy

Hello my blogging buddies. I hope you are well this Monday. For those of you (and I sincerely hope there are very few) who have suffered as a result of these ongoing storms I send good wishes.

Now usually I would be sharing a Cutie Pie DT card with you but we are having a post festive break and will be back with a new challenge on 20th January. For the next fortnight we are offering super duper Follower's New Year Candy, kindly donated by our fabulous DT Boss Lady Lisa.

 Link up and THIS is what you could win...

...oh, how I wish I could!!

prize consists of: doily's, 2 packs of flowers, 2 sheets of sentiment toppers, mint/iridescent bows, 3m roll of ribbon, pink butterfly washi tape and a selection of buttons. Sooooo go on what are you waiting for!?

On a different note, we have had a major change to our lives. As a family we made the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our precious boy Mog the Dog. Since celebrating his 17th Birthday in October, his health started to decline, he was frequently off his legs, life seemed to be a struggle for him and he'd lost the light in his eyes. Goodbyes are never easy but he went quietly and peacefully to eternal sleep in his own bed on Friday afternoon. Suzy is a little subdued, largely I think, because she used to lick his dinner bowl after he had finished and now only has her own!! He did his very best for us and hope we did the same for him. Thanks for listening to me xx

Hi Sarah,
I am so sorry to hear the news of Mog. I know when my son had to put his dog to sleep after 15 years with the family we all felt really sad, and especially his choccie lab that was left on his own, but sadly he failed after 2 more years nearly to the day.
Big hugs to you and your family at this very sad time.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
