One Layer Wednesday.... for Dad

I haven't done a One Layer Wednesday challenge in what seems like a very long time!  Susan's last challenge was to find inspiration from some lovely baby shower cakes over at the Cake Wrecks blog.  Now I found several cakes that inspired me, but none of my ideas worked for a one layer card. (insert frowny face).  Then last week Jennifer asked us to use a dog or a cat image on our card.   Well I was definitely out for that one as I don't own a single dog or cat stamp (insert second frowny face).



Thankfully, this week I can play along as Susan has asked us to make a father's day card for a special father we know.   My dad has been gone for far more years then I care to count and I miss him tremendously, so this card will be going to my brother who is currently being treated for non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.   He is a really great guy and I love him to bits!  The stamps are from the newly released Flourishes set "What a Catch"! 

Thanks for taking a peek...

That's one set I didn't order from Flourishes, as I didn't think I'd use it...but wow! I love how this turned out.

My daddy has been gone for 11 years now and I still miss him every day! So sorry to hear about your brother....Hope the treatment goes well and he's soon A-Okay!

Saaaa-weet Rosebud! What a WONDERFUL image and sentiment: for sure! From an old flyfishing gal - way back in the DAY... I say FISH-ONNNNN! This is TERRIFIC!

On a side note - so sorry to hear about your brother! {!} That's a rotten hand, indeed! So glad to think about you, though - such positive prayer and energy going out in his direction! Count me in, as well! I love you, dear! I know the double edge of the Father's Day celebration all too well, but you CERTAINLY do your dad proud with your fine talent and enormous faith. God bless you, both!
