Dad and Me!!!





The Roses challenge for January was set by the lovely Betty who wanted us to use a childhood photo on our project somewhere!

Oh dear......here goes!


My Dad would have been celebrating his 91st Birthday early in February had he been with us still, so I thought it was appropriate to use this photo of him holding me.

I printed some retro paper for this card, it's so pretty and I love the stripes and the pale blue.
Some lace, seam binding over a punched edge have been added too.
I punched three blossoms to match the dp and added three AnnaBelle Sprinkles to complete.

Please, if you have a moment click on the Roses links in the left side bar to check out the girls projects.

See you soon!

Sue,
I love your card with all the soft girlie colors and the ribbon. Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on the blog hop. I really haven't gotten around to answering all my e-mails from the hop yet. I was so overwhelmed by the warmth of all my gf's. Thank you so much for your heart felt wishes.

This one must mean a lot to you. The card is so pretty, just like you. The paper and seam binding are so pretty and I like the way you added the three flowers to the bottom.
