Hi everyone and a huge thank you for the lovely comments and best wishes you left on my last post. I am very pleased to say that after a few days, when the antibiotics started to kick in, Dad made a speedy recovery and was discharged from hospital Saturday afternoon..... and I managed to keep all the plants in his greenhouse watered well and nothing died off !!
I did get another scare this morning though as the Careline phoned me because he'd pressed his alarm and as he wasn't answering the phone we leapt in the car and had a mad dash around - with me imagining the worst of course - only to find him just coming in from the garden to make himself a cuppa tea. He'd had a busy morning in the greenhouse and must have caught the alarm without realising and never heard the phone ringing in the house..... talk about relief !!
Anyways enough of my ramblings as I have the card to show you which I made for Dad to give his Sister who was 94 last week.... and just in case you're wondering I'm happy to say she is just as active as my Dad. I used a large 8 inch card blank and a decoupage image which I printed from the Joanna Sheen 'Jayne Netley Mayhew collection part 2' cd, with a few extra flowers printed off as well. The paper is a freebie from The Coffee Shop blog, the sentiment is a Clearly Besotted stamp and the pearls and lace are from my stash.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
CD Sunday challenge 'something beginning with B' birds + blossom
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'birthdays'
Creative Corner challenge 'let's celebrate'
A Gem of a challenge 'flowers'
Thanks for your visit and I'll be around to catch up with you all over the next few days.
