I was (am) so grateful to have my dad around for another Father's Day. There for a while it looked like I wouldn't. I'd like to give a shout-out to the wonderful nurses working the oncology ward at St. Peter's Hospital in Helena, Montana. You are so special!
The image was heat embossed in black on Marina Mist CS, then an old Blender Pen dipped in bleach lightened the sails. The ocean was added with a Not Quite Navy marker and white caps with a gel pen. The anchor was heat embossed in silver on Brushed Silver CS, then cut out and tied (anchor knot) with baker's twine.
I think the white eyelets are reminiscent of portholes, don't you?
