Let's Face It!

Hi there!  Another week has flown by.  I had planned to post on Thursday but a turn of events changed that plan.  (This is a little long so if you don't want to read personal material, skip on down to the card information in the next paragraph.)  Our son was scheduled for out-patient knee surgery at 2:30 pm on Thursday.  We were on our way to the facility when our DIL contacted us saying they took him into the OR (at 1:30).  The surgery was about forty-five minutes and went fine.  We waited for him to go to his recovery room so we could see him.  DIL had to leave at 3 pm to be home when our granddaughter got home from school.  Surprisingly, they let DIL go back to see him before she left.  When she came out she was upset because they told her that our son was experiencing some throat spasms after having the breathing tube removed and he was having difficulty breathing - his oxygen level was in the 70's.  They told her he'd be in there for another 2 hours.   Hubby and I did not get to see our son until 6 pm when he was taken to a room to stay overnight for observation.  Talk about a nerve wracking wait!  I let DIL know that son was being kept overnight.  She came back to the hospital with their daughter in tow.  Hubby and I finally left about 7:30 pm with our granddaughter, who was spending the night with us.  Friday our son was released so I went to pick up DIL (she went home with a friend), then headed to the hospital.  After making sure son was in their car OK and kissing everyone goodbye, I headed back into the hospital to visit a friend who had been admitted on Tuesday.  Once I got home, I crashed and burned - took a six hour nap!  Thanks for hanging in there for this portion of the post.  I try to refrain from posting too much personal information because you're here for stamping

So with that in mind, let's get to the card.  This was one of the samples on our Card Buffet, which could be either a birthday or a Father's Day card.  The buttons were made by punching out a black 3/4" circle, then punching a 1" circle around the negative of the 3/4" circle, to make a ring.  Glue that ring onto a 1" circle.  Make "button holes" by punching holes with a 1/8" hand-held punch.
