Quick card for Dad

Hi Guys,

My Dad had a bit of an 'incident' involving a gas bottle and some flames recently. He was very lucky to get out of it with some 1st and 2nd degree burns to his arms and face and the loss of his eyelashes. Could have been much, much worse. Gas bottles are now strictly banned by my Mum!!!

I put together a quick get well card to put with some chocs, Dad loves anything with dark chocolate.




I started with this piece of, now retired, DSP, and took the colour scheme from it. I stamped the tree from the 'Thoughts and Prayers' set in Baja Breeze and then rimmed it with Not Quite Navy. The sentiment is in Not Quite Navy. I added 3 brads and layered it onto NQN CS. Simple but sufficiently 'blokey'. It is Dad's b'day on the 22nd but I made a more detailed card for that (see yesterday's post).

Ta for popping by,

Cheers,
Fi x

Oh dear Fi, that's was not good news for your Dad. I have had a gas bottle catch fire & it's a very scary situation to be in! Luckily it was extinguished quickly with no harm or damage occurring. Hope your Dad recovers from his burns quickly. I'm sure the lovely card & chockies will help him with this process. :)

Hi Fi. I'm sure your Dad (being male) was greatly appreciative of the chocs! But ... hopefully he noticed the love and care that went into the card, too! Hugs xxaxx
