Men !

I am having a little catch up tonight, here are the two cards I made for father's day, the first one being for my dad.

I love this stamped image, it actually has a different sentiment on it, but I overstamped as it wasn't suitable for dad. The picture reminds me of the time him and mum took care of Robbie whilst I stayed in hospital to care for Amy when she was struck down with pneumonia. Poor Amy was in such a terrible state and we nearly lost her. Robbie was only six weeks old and I was still nursing him but he wasn't allowed to stay with me in the hospital. Mum and dad took him home with them, caring for him until I could come home with Amy. They had to bottle feed him, it wasn't an easy time for any of us but I couldn't have got through it without their help, it was hard as Robbie didn't take to the bottle at first, he was tiny anyway and obviously couldn't understand why mum had all of a sudden disappeared, dad laid like the image above with Robbie on his chest every night, soothing him to sleep.

I added verses and quotes to each of the panels on this trifold card, all computer generated.

This second card is also a trifold, and I made this one for my kids to give to Neil.

I used Tim Holtz patterned papers, Hero Arts flowers and Magnolia Stamps for the inside.

I chose an image to represent each of the children and painted them with Distress inks.
