I am the last stop on today's hop, but before I share my project, I need to share that my father passed away on Tuesday, March 11.  This picture was taken on Friday, March 7, 2014:
We had Olympics at the facility where he lived and I work.  He had just taken 3rd place in the walking event.  He was very proud of his medal, but a little miffed he was beaten by two women, both older than he was! I will miss his smile and sense of humor very much.  He was a wonderful father.
This is an Easter hop, and since I know my father has now had the ultimate Easter, it makes this even more special.  Here's a card I made using the  wonderful Pinque Peacock products.

This card showcases one of the beautiful Pinque Peacock fabric swirls.  It also has a Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit called, "Everything Easter."
Make sure to hop the next 2 days also for more Pinque Peacock inspiration.

  10. Julie, so sorry to hear about your father. *hugs* I have had a rough week as well with 3 family members in the hospital at one time, but one is home and resting. I'm having to play nurse and keep checking on him- my stepdad. My grandparents are in separate hospitals. Anyway, enough about me, I love the butterflies and the CAS look! Oh, the fabric swirl is lovely as well! :)

  20. Julie,
    So sorry for the loss of your Father. The pain does lesson but there will be many tearful moments in the process-and it's perfectly OK. God Bless you and yours.

  21. So sorry for the loss of your dad. How very lucky you were to share extra time with him, as you work. You summed it up by saying "He was a wonderful father". Some are not that fortunate. I too, had a good one. Now, on to this lovely Easter card......that is a very creative flower!

  22. Your Dad looks really happy in the picture. What a great memory to cherish. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.
