I made this card quite some time ago and posted it to my dad who has been undergoing cancer treatment. I didn’t send the card alone; it was part of a package of bits and pieces that I thought my parents would like. To keep the cost down I sent the package by surface mail, thinking that it might take 6 weeks perhaps. My parents received it a few days ago, 10 weeks after I posted it.  As my dad reads this blog I wanted to post him a card he hadn’t already seen. There was a card for my mother in there too but it has been so long that I can’t remember which one it was!

The news has been good since I sent that card, the last two cycles of my father’s chemotherapy have been cancelled because of the success of the treatments he has had since August. He will start a new type of treatment in February.

My parents live in Australia as I did for the first 35 years of my life and the weather is warming up for them. So although a card with seashells on it might seem out of place for those of us seeing snow outside, it is not for Aussies looking forward to their summer holidays.

    Hi Heather
    What a gorgeous card with those sealife outlines on that gorgeous sunny square! Great to hear the good news about your father too.
    It’s lovely to see you back in Blogland! I have no way of contacting you other than here, and I know you’ve been busy recently, but I’ve been wanting to say thank you for your comments and support.

    It’s so good to see you back with a card, Heather! I can certainly understand that your mind has been elsewhere, especially when you can’t be there yourself. Good that your dad is doing well, and what a warm and cheering card you sent him.
