Hang on in there....

Hope today finds you all well and fighting fit, wonder what the weather will have in store for us all today.

My card as this is a quick post before I have to be on my way, is another card for my card drive to keep Peter's spirits up. I thought I would try and send him at least one card every few weeks, sad to say as yet haven't received any cards from blog land to help and only a couple of promises, but guess everyone is too busy with their own lives and worlds so hey ho.

This is another fab image by Crissy Armstrong and I just thought it is so appropriate as Peter really has got to hang in there with all the what must be horrible treatments and knowing that at best he will only prolong his life by another 3 years. Must be awful as he has 2 teenage daughters who he knows he is never likely to see blossom into womanhood and marry and have families of their own, just thinking about that would be enough to make anyone feel low.

I thought this image would make him smile to know he has support from his friends as he gets little from his family, and this wee guy is just so bloomin' cute too.

I coloured him with promarkers and the papers are a mix of scraps and bits from a card and scrapbooking kit which I think might be K and Co, but it was from QVC. The fancy edge is simply punched as are the rounded corners and the sentiment hand written in white sakura pen.
