Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I made this card for Theresa's sketch challenge as part of the stamp celebration releases including this wonderful new stamp set she designed. I received this set from Theresa in remembrance of my dad. I miss him every single day. He passed away July 29th, 2011 after battling metastatic lung cancer but, it feels like just yesterday. When I saw this tree image, it reminded me of him in the sense that he was a survivor with undying strength. He "lived his story"..and was an example to everyone he knew. This card is devoted to my father who I will always love and cherish. He left us with invaluable gifts. Thank you dad. I pray this is an inspiration to others. The ribbon color for lung cancer is pearl or white. I used Theresa's new fall digi papers to back the image as well as GKD Pure Luxury CS in Green Apple. In addition, the ribbon is GKD. The image is stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink onto GKD Pure Luxury white CS. TFL!

What a beautiful card and a wonderful testament to your Dad.  You do know He is always with you, right?  My Dad passed away in 2004, and I know for a fact he is just over my shoulder! 

The sun may set & the moon may set, but they are never really gone

(((hugs))) to you!
