Faux Embossing!

Hi everyone. 
Well it's been a stressful week. My Dad has gone into respite for a few days. I was so upset yesterday when we were told he had to go into a nursing home as he wasn't well enough for a care home. It seemed ok but we don't no anyone who has been there.
He seemed quite happy there when we left him today. He had a great view out of his window. I just hope he will be ok.  He knows we need a break bless him. 
I made this using a Studio cutting file from Crafts u Print. It's cut on the Silhouette Portrait Die cutting machine.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid.
Thank for calling
x Jan

  11. Beautiful card Jan - make the most of the break whilst your Dad is in respite care, I know the hard work involved in caring for your loved ones, and it's so hard to take that step, but you'll feel better and more able to cope when he comes home.
