Thanks Grandad!

 I love this image from Prairie Fairy!
I first saw it used by my fellow DT member on Cards For Men, Patricia. (She used it for her entry in the Fairy Fun Fridays Tent Card Challenge).
I've entered it into a couple of challenges.
Delightful Sketches
I Love Digi
I hope it qualifies, 'coz the challenge is a card for Dad.
(I thought I was doing it for the previous challenge, use a charm,  but I'm a day late for that. Duh)!
The papers are from my Papermania Capsule collection and the image is coloured with Copics.
The gorgeous image is from Prairie Fairy and is called 'Me 'n my Grampa'.
Next time I colour this, it will have wooden planks across the back, (like a shed).

I'm off to see the Haematolgist this morning to get my results from the bone marrow sample he took.
I went for my first radiology appointment on Monday. It was a preliminary one to mark out where they will 'shoot'. It all seems pretty straight forward, so I've no worries.
I'll be back tomorrow with a new Fairy Fun Friday challenge.
Have a super day. (It's chucking it down here)! I don't mind, the plants need the water.

Thanks for calling by Viv xxx

Just saw the darling picture of the new Oliver Twist :D He is cuuuuute!

Darling card and what a fabulous image! I just love the relationship kids have with their grandparents as it is truly special. My hubby jokes in saying it is because they are both picking on the one in the middle (i.e. parents).

Thoughts are with you re: your testing and treatments. My mom had radiation for Hodgkins lymphoma and if I recall, the first treatments were not bad at all. It is after cumulative times that you begin to feel it. We had great times teasing her about her "tattoos" - they put a few permanent dots on her so they could line things up properly every time. HUGE (((hugs))) for you!!

What a nostalgic card VIV! Love the colors and the way you embossed the patterned dp. There is a challenge calling for dry embossing, can't remember which. It is on my barrel card on my blog, go see!
