I finally had a chance to stamp - last week was mighty busy!
I got several My Favorite Things stamps and dies from a friend, and I used some on this card. I die-cut and stamped the rose and stem and leaves. I used foam squares on the rose, the tips of the leaves, and the top of the stem. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and then embossed with a Darice Wire Fence embossing folder. I matted with Old Olive cardstock.
Update on my dad: Unfortunately, he has more cancer:( About 18 years ago, he had prostate cancer and had his prostate removed. That cancer has now come back and has spread to his bones and other places. He will be getting a testosterone blocker shot every three months to try to keep it in check. He will also be getting a one-treatment shot of focused radiation to the top of his spine to halt the cancer there. Hopefully this will give him several more years! Alas - he will not be able to skydive. Much too risky with some brittle bones. We were scheduled to jump over the weekend, but it was postponed again. I'll let you know when our next scheduled date is!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
