I hope you all had a good day today. I went to see my dad today who is in such poor shape. I sat on his hospital bed and rubbed his back and fighting the tears, all the while my mom is sobbing. I spent as much time with him tonight as I could and when I left I felt like I was saying good-bye to him for the last time. He is holding on because he is so worried about my mom being alone. I have lost friends in my life before but I have never lost someone so close to me, I don't know what to do.
When I got home I was so upset I needed an outlet to get my mind off of things for a while. This is a card to my dad for being the best dad he knew how. My card today is for 2 of Split Coast Stampers challenges. One from last weeks sketch challenge which I loved and the other is from today's color challenge. The color challenge for today is BASIC WHITE, GOING GRAY, TEMPTING TURQUOISE . Although I do not have these Stampin Up colors I used the closest that I had. My cardstock is white, grey, and teal. I used Mark's Finest Papers stamp set Sand, Surf, Relax and I used Stampin Up's Taken With Teal ink pad. I used Really Reasonable Ribbons, grey and turquoise ribbon and finished the card off with some grey gemstones.
I hope you enjoyed the card, sorry for the sadness. Thanks for stopping by please come again. Have a blessed day!
