Friends with flair - for daddy....

Abby is having a HARD time having daddy gone this time around. She was used to having him home every night in the VI. Now that we're back, he's out of town a lot. I am proud that she made it a whole month before starting to act out and cry for him - but it's hard. She's only 3...

She wanted me to make him a card that she can color and send to him in the mail - so I pulled out my Feb KOTM - LOVE all the sentiments for dad's in this one. It came at the perfect time for me and this card. Next care package that goes out will have this card with her hand drawn pictures inside along with her name - it's the only letters that she can consistently write right now.

I love this Basic Grey paper - love how the paper pads work so well together! I wasn't thinking of a "dad" card when I bought the paper, but it worked great! The tree "leaves" are paper pieced with the Origins paper also.
Supplies
Stamps: Unity Feb KOTM
Ink: Tsukeniko
Paper: BG Origins, Gina K pure luxury (base)
