Happy Friday!!!

Good morning everyone and happy Friday!!!! My Dad came through his surgery ok....he is really tired but ate good when we got home and is keeping his ice pack on!! That is really something for my Dad because he is always cold...LOL!!! Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. His physician is such a real kind man and even prayed with us before the surgery...it's wonderful to know that there are men who are not afraid to express their faith!!! Anyway.....this is the inspiration picture for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger from last week. They are running the challenge for 2 weeks so I had a few days to work on this.
The sketch is for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 83 and the adorable mushroom stamps and sentiment are from Hero Arts. Felt flowers with buttons were added and the ric rac die is from Papertrey Ink.
Recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts
Paper: Whisper White, So Saffron, Hawaiian Shores
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, Felt Flowers, Buttons, Pink Gingham Ribbon, Rickrack Die, Nestabilities
Thanks for visiting....have a great Friday!!!!

Oh, Joan! I'm so glad your dad's surgery went well. My dad landed in the ER last fall without a pulse and had to have an emergency pacemaker installed to keep him alive. I know how scary this can be for you--we love our parents so much!

Your card is so happy and fun and a great take on the Trigger!

Continued wishes for your dad's speedy recovery!
