For my Dad + 2S4Y

I was on a mission this afternoon. After tackling an immense pile of ironing this morning, including all bed sheets and hubby's bag full of washing after a long weekend golf in Spain, I had half an hour to spare before I had to get on the school run I started creating a card for my dad, who was undergoing an operation today.

A few years ago he had a fall off a ladder and broke his elbow. He's already had several operations, but he was still unable to twist his wrist because the two bones in his forearm have grown together. Today, they were going to separate them. So, this one's for you dad, I hope the operation went as planned.



Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock kraft | Scenic Route PP Ashville | buttons various | Vandoros ribbon | Basic Grey alphabet chipboard stickers | Tools: Ellison Design die cut machine | Spellbinder Nestabilities Labels Two | VersaColor ink Pinecone.

I wasn't quite finished with the card by the time I left on the school run, so it was a race against the clock on the way home to have enough daylight to take a picture. I just made it.

Next, I played along with 2S4Y, Laura's sketch #19. I'd already made a card two nights ago, but that wasn't something to be proud of. I tried something new, but it definitely wasn't me. Than yesterday, I saw Ingrid quarter turned the sketch, which inspired me.



Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock | Collage Press PP, die cut label, letter stickers | Prima Marketing flowers | KaiserCraft bling | organza ribbon unknown | Tools: Martha Stewart punch leaf, border punch dots.

And then for the eye candy... I think the picture speaks for itself:



Yum!
