As it's 'Father's Day' today here in the UK, I really felt that I wanted to make a card that I could dedicate to the memory of my wonderful Dad who sadly passed away many years ago.
My Dad used to have a fabulous garden and he used to grow all of our flowers and vegetables. I remember them being in long, neat rows, and he used to plant a few plants or seeds each week, so that we had a constant supply of food throughout the summer and autumn months. I guess as a child that I took this for granted, especially when many of my friends were eating the then new and very fashionable ready meals that had just started to appear on the market.....what a fool I was, and what I wouldn't give to have my Dad here again today to thank him for all he did for us.
I feel absolutely blessed to have had such an amazing Dad and for all the happy memories that I have of our time together. What's that saying...... Don't cry because they've gone, smile because they were here. :) xxx
Here's the card that I've made, and that I dedicate to him:
On this card, I've used some gardening stamps by 'The Stamp Man' that I've had for years and never
used until now. Unfortunately, these stamps are no longer available. The trees are by Inkylicious and I’ve used some Floersoft on the bare tree.
I hope that your day will be a special one where beautiful memories can be made x
I'll be back with you tomorrow with some mid-month inspiration over at Stamping Sensations.
