Happy St. Patty's Day!

I have a bit of green to share with you this morning.  I am having somewhat of a hard time getting back into my stamping here.  So I figured a CAS card is always a good place to start.  I made this for Splitcoasts CAS 58 challenge this week.  It also falls into the Crazy 4 Challenges category since I made this for my husband's boss.  The challenge is masculine cards.  I also used the CPS sketch 158 this week.  Slowly, but surely I will get those creative juices flowing again.

It's good to be home and my dad is doing great.  They are 99% sure that the cancer was contained and removed. Thank you so much for all your kind thoughts, words and prayers.  It means sooo much.

 I managed to come home early since he was doing so well.  His wife did not deal well with me being there.  I am hoping that she was easier to deal with after I left.  What a tough disease.... that Alzheimer's .  She was just rotten, but I have to try and remember that it isn't her fault.  That is easier to do after I have left. 

So, I am happy to be home with my family and settling back into the fun we have going on here.  I hope to have another card for you tomorrow.  However, we have family coming in today.  We are a "pit stop" on their way to Tennessee. I will be busy cleaning and (ugh) cooking today while we await their arrival.

I hope you have a great GREEN day!  Be safe!

Yeah Alzheimer's is a terrible and hurtful disease. Not just to person who has it, but also to everyone around them. So heartbreaking to watch someone suffer from it.

Awesome cards - very green and pretty.

Glad to hear that things are going so well for your dad...that is great news! I thought of you many, many times over the past two weeks. Also saw your husband picking up the kids from school one day. He did a great job being Mr. Mom! Welcome home!
