Hurricane Donation Set....

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry I've not blogged much this week. My Grandad has been quite poorly again and on Thursday morning with my aunty,my mum and I super close by him my Grandad went off on his journey to be with my nana. I rang Scott as he had stayed home with Mo and asked him to tell Mo. As soon as he told Mo a beautiful rainbow appeared out of the window they were looking out of! It wasn't raining at the time so Mo knew it was a sign from my Grandad for him. Scott was as brilliant as he always is and quickly took a photo for us to keep and print out for Mo.

I am finding it super hard to write that he has passed. He was such a wonderful, kind and gentle man and he did so much for so many people that I truly feel the world has lost a super special man. I know that my heart is broken by his loss but I also know that he so deserved to be free from pain and returned to the loving arms of my nana after so long without her.

I was grateful to be able to spend some time with my gorgeous cousin Blaize. Together we emptied Grandad's wardrobe on Thursday and took our time to bury our heads into shirts and jumpers that smelt of Grandad. We also had lots of giggles about happy memories of Grandad and tried some of his shoes on. This time with Blaize will remain one of most happy memories and we both definitely needed that time to process our sadness.

This morning whilst struggling through my tears to focus I made some promises to my Grandad and made myself a little project life digital reminder I can print out and look at to keep myself going. I'm never afraid of feelings you know, I just roll with them and let myself be me. Hiding stuff or pretending otherwise is not who needs Botox when you have super puffy lips and cheeks from your crying face?but being sad is not what my Grandad would of wanted and I know he's happy up there having a honeymoon period with my beautiful nana so this morning I have made myself some Grandad Goals for me to follow because he would of loved that.

So to start off my goals of a  card a day, I've got a post for you tonight using the fabulous Limited time Hurricane Donation Set of the card I made today.

The magic thing about this wonderful set is that $5 from every purchase will be donated to Animal Rescue and GoFundMe's Direct Impact Fund for hurricane victims. There 4 new stamps and 7 sentiments for the discounted price of $12.

So if you want to help those affected by Harvey and Irma, and get a bargain in the process make sure you pop in and buy this wonderful set before the end of September.
I used a sentiment from my stamps stash for my card but you get 7 super sweet sentiments with the set you can use!! 

Thank you for popping in, hugs Lou xx
