2009 was the last Father's Day I had with my dad. Hubby snapped this shot in our driveway after church just as it started to sprinkle. Turned out to be a picture I treasure. I was blessed to have an incredible father who I always loved, but came to really appreciate as an adult. He was 75 years old when he cared for my terminally ill mom at home--never complained & did a wonderful job. His career in radio put him in the public eye & I honestly never heard anyone say something negative about him--even those who didn't share his strong Christian faith. That is probably because he always saw something good about the person & treated them with respect. I miss just hearing his voice & knowing that no matter how I was feeling when I stepped in the door his face would brighten, there'd be a big smile & he'd tell me how great I looked & how glad he was to see me--even when I'd just been there the day before. Thanks for listening.
I was thinking of my dad as I made this card for Flourishes TT Challenge HERE. He loved red & roses, especially red ones. I used Flourishes Medallion stamped in Memento Peanut Brittle to make a background on Core'dinations Krafty cardstock. Then I used Spellbinders Curved Rectangles (I bought them to use for masculine cards) to cut out the section I wanted. I sponged the edge with Peanut Brittle & Love Letter. The card is made from the same Nestie. I stamped just the tip of the Medallion stamp around the edges in Love Letter. I had never opened my Thickers stickers--perfect for this card. I just colored them with a COPICS, tied on twine sponged in Peanut Brittle & added 3 little red roses. Hope you're having a lovely Father's Day if you're in the US. I always appreciate that you visit my blog & leave me a comment.
