So, on to this week's challenge

Lets get SENTIMENTAL
(be sure to focus on your sentiment)

For my card,

I made a card for my Dad who had a massive stroke and is in critical condition.  It was my way of dealing with the entire situation of his being a strapping outdoors man to a man who recognizes no one, can't walk and wants to eat nothing.

This card was very cathartic as I, nor my 3 children have seen him; people seeing him who know him agitates him.

So this card is my way of saying
"thanks Dad"

God knows the rest.

PLEASE click on the card.
MY SENTIMENT WAS THE POINT OF THE CARD!
The rest worked it's way around the sentiment.
Thanks for honoring my dad this way.


How true is this statement, for all of us!
