Sad day and Betty Card!!

  I just wanted to share a quick card made with one of Funky Hand's gorjuss Betty stamps!! I had the love 'n' that set to play with and oh thy are just fabulous. Betty stamps like a dream which is fab for paper piecing which is what I did with her dress.
I used papers from the fabby Colour Me Happy papercraft factory  from Funky Hand ( ooooh and super exciting! there are piccies of the new one over in the shop)
The lovely centre rise step card base on this one is another fabby Penny Duncan file. If you haven't been over to Penny's blog you really need too, she makes the most beautiful flowers and cards to cut with MTC.
And so onto the sad stuff...
our dear little rabbit Simba passed away yesterday. Little mo and I went out to give him his tea and he had just gone off to heaven in his sleep. He looked so peaceful, he was 6 and a half.
Little Mo was devastated, he adored Simba and was always in the run whenever Simba was, sat with him reading o him and alsorts so we have a very sad Little mo here today. Ryan was sad but at almost 11 he can handle it a whole lot better, me? yup I cried like a big baby with mo when we found Simba yesterday.
Mo had some time with simba this morning, he had even wrapped him up in a tea towel  and was snuggling him by the time we got outside, he was so sad bless him.
We bought Simba from another family who didn't want him anymore when mo was 1. He was the most loving rabbit and we will miss him terribly so we had a little bunny funeral this morning.
I covered a box with brown paper ad Mo decorated it with a picture of simba's play tunnel and a carrot. He put some sawdust and straw inside " to keep simba warm and cosy mummy" and he gently put simba in (yup, mummy cried again as mo was crying, urgh!) then mo blew 2 kisses into the box and gave simba a last stroke and put him gently down into the big hole daddy had dug.
He popped his simba's fav toy ( a dingly bell treat storer thingy) into the hole with him and then him and ryan filled the hole up with their littl plastic spades ( more tears from mummy...)
The boys made little crosses for the  'grave' and mo popped a teddy ornament on top with simba's food bowl which is going to hold a little plant. Mo made a special heart on a stick for his teddy to hold.

So thats us for today!! lol!!
