Dad's Card

This is a get well card I made for my Dad who has just left hospital after suffering a brain bleed. The doctors said we are vey lucky to have him. (I say they were lucky to have found his brain. lol.) Apparently this hasn't changed his outlook on life and is still the same 'old grumpy buggar' he used to be. I'm sure secretly he is thankful to be able to spend more time with his family especially with Christmas around the corner!

I found this image at Lost in paper scraps by Dawn Moore. Although it doesn't look like my Dad it still reminded me of him. lol.
I coloured him using my copics which are not so hazardous to my health anymore. You'll be happy to know that I don't hold my breath when I colour now! They are now only hazardous to my bank account!
I've used Stampin' up's Sahara sand cs and ink and their 'Oval All' stamp set. The patterned paper is Kaisercraft and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.
Happy to have you safe at home Dad.
Keep creating, Kylie xo.
