I would like to enter this one into the challenge at 

Many, many thanks for your comments regarding the upset I had with the cat, turned out he was just a kitten but not the teeny new born.
I contacted the vets and was totally heartbroken once again when they told me that there was nothing they could do for him. 
They x-rayed him and did an ultra sound, his pelvis was damaged beyond repair and his spleen had ruptured, so they put him out of his pain.
There was no chip but they have put it's details on the Lost & Found to see if anyone contacts them.
I thank you all for relating similar stories that have happened to you and I know that you know just how I am feeling, I keep seeing him all the time, the only thing that is taking my mind off it for a short while is my crafting. 
My eyes feel like a rasp they are so sore but I know that I did what I could and even the vets thanked me I just wanted him to live......
I will be popping by to thank you all personally but I have to go to my mums now so see you later.

 Good morning all, hope that you had a lovely weekend 
Today we have an inspirational reminder post for
The theme this month is 
there are 2 prizes to be won so I do hope that you will come join us.
For my DT card I have used a stamp from the AUTUMN POPPY SET this was my first ever buy some years ago it is a large A4 set and I have used most of the stamps 
This one features just one of the Mushroom images as you can see it is a very CAS style I have coloured the image with Nuvo and Graphic markers and added a stamped sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the challenge at
use one or all of purple, orange, green, black
I have used Orange & Black.

I want to thank everyone who has taken time out to leave me a comment they are truly wonderful and supportive.

I have not had a good weekend I have been so upset and my heart has been breaking. 
On Friday evening I witnessed a cat run over outside our block of flats, we live on the top floor over looking the main road, I saw the cat roll and try to run away, I bolted down stairs to see if I could help it, fortunately one of the ladies who also lives in our block had just arrived home and was kind enough to come and help me look for it, we found it just over the other side of the wall on the pavement, I just broke down with so much grief and my heart was hurting, the cat was still alive but it's back legs were splayed I knew then that it had been seriously hurt, a lady that was sat with her family in the pub garden came over and offered to phone the emergency vets.  My friend went to fetch my partner who brought down a thick cover so I could put it over the cat I just kept stroking it's head and talking quietly to it.  It had been breathing very hard but did start to calm down, it was a young cat with such beautiful markings and obviously well looked after. 
My partner and friend stayed with it while I went knocking on the doors over the road which is the direction it had come from, all of the people admitted to having cats and some admitted to having at least six, but not one said it could be theirs and not one came to check.
The car that had hit the cat did not stop, apart from the lady who phoned the vets no-one came to see if they could help.
The vets came and took the cat away I will be phoning them later to see if it survived. 
The thing is the road has a 30 mile speed limit I think 5% keep within that limit the rest exceed 40+ it is frightening.

I was not surprised at the lack of peoples caring which is why I love animals and always have, always will.
I have cried my heart out until I have no more tears left, I am having nightmares when I can finally sleep it hurts so much to see an animal in pain, I thank the Lord that I was able to help and maybe even saved it's life.
From a heartbroken Lorraine have a lovely day see you later
