For the Boys

Morning folks....yesterday didn't quite turn out as planned.....the weather was horrendous...started off blowing a gale....freezing but dry...could it get any worse....oh yes...halfway round our morning stroll it started  chucking it down and not just any old rain.....the monsoon variety and we arrived home drenched....me feeling rather sorry for myself with my grumpy face on and Buddy not giving two hoots.....he doesn't do grumpy.
After a warming cuppa it was off to the cubbyhole to finish off the cards for Postpals....

and Buddy had to join in too

but life has a way of putting things into perspective and I was well and truly brought right back down to earth with a huge bump when I popped over to Postpals to choose who I was sending the cards to.....we are all guilty of mumping and moaning about the petty little things that annoy us in our lives and forget that there folks facing far more traumatic events.    I spent the morning reading all the children's stories and it's heartbreaking to see all their happy smiling faces when they have so much pain and suffering in their young lives.....poor Buddy didn't know what was happening.....me crying and him licking my face trying to make it all better.  A truly humbling experience and I'm sure you can find the time to make even one card and bring a moment of joy into a child's life.

Morning Kath & Buddy
Beautiful cards as usual Ksth. Whoever recieves the card with Buddy's photo on will be deliighted.It's awesome how animals play a terrific role in the World in supporting and helping the human race. It's a shame that not all humans appreciate God's wonderful animal creations.

the cards are lovely Kath, I spent an hour or so this morning checking out the Postpals site and crying my eyes out at one point! Will be making up a batch of cards to send off but goodness knows how I'll choose which ones to send to? Have a feeling I'll work my way through all of them!

Stunning cards Kath and what a tremendous cause, Postpals is one I like to help too. I cant visit their website without blubbing either.

What lucky little ones will receive your stunning cards!

Very cute card, Kath!! Our weather is not looking great here too... it's suppose to be summer, but we're yet to see a whole week of sun. Thanks for the luvin... it's nice that you take a minute out of your busy day to leave a comment.

Cheers!
