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!
