Just Add Ink #139.....

Gosh the weeks are just flying by lately, probably more the fact that l am getting old...:0) But today especially has me feeling rather haggard and emotional. My dad has just come out of 5hrs of surgery for Prostate Cancer and it has most definitely been a day of emotional overload.
Not that he will be reading this tonight, but I'm thinking of you Dad, love you! xxx

This week over at Just Add Ink ...Tina has challenged us all to just add..."Something Brand New" and as paper crafters the world over are much alike in their addiction, it shouldn't be to hard to find something "New" or something you have had for awhile and not yet used. Pretty sure we all have those purchases in our stash that we just had to have, but still need to use...:0)

As the Stampin-Up Catalogue year is only just beginning here, finding a new toy or two to use was pretty easy!

  1. Nikki, I hope your Dad recovers quickly and to full health.

    Your card is absolutely beautiful! I might try to play along this week, I don't usually have new and unused products (I'm pretty determined I'll use my whole stash as soon as I get it, because I'm so excited!) but I just received some new "stuff" recently, yippee!

  2. This is really, really gorgeous Nikki! LOVE that jar of beautiful flowers and the background stamping of those leaves.
    Big hugs to your dad!

  3. Nikki, this is absolutely gorgeous. You have made that jar fad that I just don't get look totally amazing.

    Best wishes for your Dad. Hope his surgery went well and the road to recovery is smooth and short :) Hugs

  4. Absolutely enchanting Nikki! Love the depth you have created with the images & the beautiful palette you have chosen. Gorgeous!!!
    Big hugs to you & all the best for your Dad. xo

  5. This bunch of flowers is just stunning Nikki - absolutely love the way you have layered all the foliage and flowers and the colours are so soft and summery. Totally gorgeous. Wishing all goes well for your Dad and he has a speedy recovery!! xxx

  6. I hope your dad is back to good health really soon. Thinking of you - lots of big squishy hugs!

    Such a beautiful card, love those flowers and the colours you've chosen to use. Really striking. I think I need more new toys after seeing this one. x
