Hostess Gift


inside sentiment reads: thinking of you

Hello friends : ) I am home from my trip to Florida.  Thank you so much for all your well wishes and concern!  I was blessed to see my father in better health than I had feared I would find him.  He is recovering well and even getting back to some of his old favorite pastimes.

I took a gift of cards to my step Mother that I made using the "Life is Sweet" stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink.  She liked it : ) and here they all are.

I drew a heart shape on my card stock in pencil and then followed the shape to create my heart wreath.  I love the delicate littlest stamp in this set.









I drew a circle on my card stock for the wreath shape onthis card as well and then built my floral wreath : ) Super easy!!


Last but not least here is a picture that my brother took of my Dad and step Mom with me on their side porch it was the only picture I was able to get of them before my camera battery died.  




I am hoping to get out to blogland very soon to catch up with all that you gals have been up to while I have been away. My mouse finger is itching to see all the inspiration I've been missing : )

BIG (((Hugs)))

It applies most especially to how my heart feels right now about my dad!! Thank you, Thank you for your lovely and sweet, caring card you sent to me. I am in awe at your goodness!! Please know that you are an esteemed friend!! Have a beautiful day!!
