So This one I thought the Pattern paper helped, as I was taking pictures of this huge Mexican Flag while we were on the boat, and then I seen this paper, and just knew what to do. Thanks for stopping by, and thanks again for all the prayers & thoughts for my Dad. Hugs!

Anniversary Dear

Wow what a weekend and week already. My Dad had back surgery on Monday, and so my Mom, sister and I spent the whole very long day at the hospital, he is still in ICU, but hopefully tomorrow he will get moved to a regular room. He did great, and now we are just concerned about his heart, but we have faith that he will be better in time. I spent Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with my Mom. I am going to see her again on Friday. She was really tired again today, so hopefully she got in a nap at one point.
Onto my card, our Anniversary is next weekend, so I thought I would make my DH a card. I seen this sketch and colors at Paper Take Weekly Challenge. Then I added the button for the Your Next Stamp Challenge using buttons. The Shabby Tea Room said to make a Father's Day card or a man one, well not sure if it works for every one, but I like purple and that was our color when we got married 17 years ago. So I thought Brian would like it. Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.
