Sorry i havnt posted or joined in any challenges lately
On Friday at 4.10 pm our liitle boy Barney sadly died peacefully and suddenly with us by his side at home.
After 3 weeks of tests and x-rays he was finally diagnosed with Addisons disease which he has probably had since birth or contacted years ago.
This horrid virus is virtually undetectable and slowly Very slowly takes your life without you knowing it.
By the time the symptoms are recognised it is usually too late.
We are both devastated and so upset he was only 10 and such a happy little chap.
Barney thank you for coming into our lives and being such a lovely friend,giving us so much LOVE and making us so happy.
We love and miss you terribly and our hearts are broken
from your 2 daddys

My entry for Inspiration Muse
The first theme is Crowns so i thought i would give this rubber stamp its first showing.
Its by Grunge Gallery Artstamps and will be available from Once upon a stamp from mid December.
I used coloured pencils in a manic way and like the carefree feel to it.
I can see this stamp becoming one of my many favorites.
By the way Rubber Stamp sheets are sent post free all over Europe
