TIO #15 - Nature's Beauty - Guest Hostess Beth

Here is our lovely Beth, The Queen of Cups, and her challenge for TIO #15. Her theme is Nature's Beauty. She says

Please make a tag that includes something of what you consider natural beauty, from something from Mother Nature to something beautiful in your life. It might be nice to include some bit of nature on your tag too!! (Frankie adds, please use at least one stamp...)

"Hmmmmm... something about me! I'm a SAHM who likes to thnk of herself as an artist! Collage and mixed media are my favourite types of art, and I usually add rubber stamping into each project. I sell on esty and 1000Markets under the name of The Queen of Cups. I also love to blog, as The Queen of Cups Runneth Over.. Many thanks to the fabulous Frankie for letting me be the guest hostess on her glorious blog!! Happy Day!! Beth"

So there you have it... I am sorry to be late posting this, but I am rather shaky today, of all days, as it's 2 years, today, since my beloved Pete died. It feels so odd to be writing that... I still don't believe it sometimes. Please join in with Beth's challenge. She has worked very hard to give us 2 pieces for inspiration. Thanks SO much Beth - Enjoy, everyone!!

Hi Frankie, thoughts and prayers are with you today! Sorry I haven't been around. My brother passed away in early July, then we had to put our 11 year old Chocolate Lab down, then to top it all off we moved in the same month!!! Hectic and emotional month. I am back to play though, so expect something from me in a little while.
I hope you have a great day, and I can empathize with you because I miss my brother something awful! My mom called us her twins even though we were 7 years apart because we had a twin like connection. We can send each other cyber hugs today. Love and God's Care, Kristen!

Thank you for posting the challenge today Beth, I will put my tag up later. I just wanted to give my love to Frankie and to let her know that hearts around the world are taking in some of her sadness today and hopefully that will lighten the burden in just the tiniest way. From sadness comes love. Hang in there Frankie, these anniversaries are tough. Rhonda xox
