My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

7 August 2013

Happy Birthday Dad

Evening everyone - hope you are all well?

As you know I have not been around much over the last week due to my Husband being in hospital.  He was discharged yesterday afternoon, which was a lot earlier than expected, but it's great to have him home, but it will still be a slow recovery process as he is still in pain and more visits back to the hospital next week to remove the drain.  Again, I would like to thank everyone for their support and messages during this time, it means a lot to me and my family.

So today is my Dad's 81st Birthday.  We have been out to lunch with him and the family today which was lovely, unfortunately Mark and my Brother-in-Law Paul couldn't be there.  Here is the card I made for him.

Card Ingredients:

Wild Rose Studio Dad Balloons Stamp
Wild Rose Studio For Men Papers
Buttons from Stash
Scallop Nesties
Rub-on Greeting
Cardstock from NEC

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by this evening - lovely to have you here,
