Firstly I must thank all of my lovely friends who sent me such kind messages and left such comforting comments after my last post on losing my lovely cat Barney. I really was so touched by your kindness and support, I feel so fortunate to have had so much understanding and kindness shown.
I haven't so much as picked up a pen until I made this card last night but I've decided it's got to be onward and upward from here on, sad as I still feel I'm sure that creativity is a good healthy distraction.
