Another Valentine

Before I got everything put away from making valentines for our grandchildren, I decided to put together a couple pieces that were on my stamping table and make a valentine for my dad. Brings back memories, as last Valentine's Day we were all in the hospital with my mom. The last card I made for her was a valentine:(

Anyway, this is for my dad. The punched heart was done with a Martha Stewart punch. On a piece of scrap cardstock, I stamped the hearts (from the same stamp set as the cards I made for our grandsons. Turns out the set is from Fiskars, and NOT Recollections like I've been saying!) and colored them. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I mounted the panel on foam squares, raised above the stamped image. Edited to add: I'm entering this in the Repeat Impressions challenge to use red, pink and white. It's hard to tell, but the little circles in with the hearts have been colored pink, and the hearts are red.

Update on my dad: His cheek is healing. In fact, I've heard it looks pretty good! His neck is coming along slower. The sores in his mouth are still painful and he can't eat very well, but is doing a great job of forcing himself to eat. Hopefully it will be uphill from here. And hopefully the cancer will be gone forever! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Sometimes memories are tough and bittersweet. I know you must miss your mom. Your dad will love receiving this card from you. Sweet and simple, yet it has a creative and interesting design. I feel for him, but I'm so happy to hear how well he's doing, and I'm really glad he went through with his treatment.

I'm sure your Dad will love his card. It is a lovely Valentines Day card Lynette. Thanks for the update on your Father. I hope that he will be able to eat without pain very soon and I also hope he is 100% free of cancer.

I see the tiny pink hearts. You captured your card beautifully.
