A Grey and Burgundy Father's Day Greeting

A splendid spring day to you all! I hope the flowers are blooming both in your hearts and in your yards! Here is a quick and simple Father's Day card I made a couple of weeks ago. The design originated from the beautiful silk ribbon I found it in a closeout bin at Joann Fabric and was able to purchase a spool of 100 yards for less than $2.00. What a steal!

I have completed half of the challenge cards from our Spring Break blog hop now! And what I realize is that my surgery for a total hip replacement is scheduled for May 28 which means I will still be in the hospital when the Memorial Day Blog Hop takes place! But - I have a plan. I will have the post ready before I leave for the hospital and then I'll have a laptop to use in the hospital! Fortunately, it is a brand new facility and has WiFi in all the patient rooms. I don't think the tray table will provide enough room to stamp so what would I do with myself (although images ready to color and my Copics should work)? Please note: I do already know I am crazy! But can you think of a better, more pleasant and fun way of passing the time in a hospital bed than blog hopping the OWH Memorial Day Blog Hop? I know I can't!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. WoW! What an amazing steal for that silk ribbon!! It's not often you stumble upon something that good!! It looks great on your father's day card too!
    Here's something you'll find amusing.......I'm having a hip replacement on the 15th of April (providing I pass the medical clearance) but I don't have a laptop, so I'll be in the dark for a while. I'll be thinking of, and missing blogland for a while, but I gots to git 'er done!! Good luck with your surgery!

  2. This is such a lovely color combination. Very classy and sophisticated. I love the subtle background paper. "Hopping" while recovering from hip surgery... WOW! talk about motivation and inspiration. Bless you!
