Lovely Oak


Today's SCS Limited Supplies Challenge is to choose from the A'La Carte Menu of the items you want to use formaking your masculine card. I chose the following: Menu #1 (2)non-floral nature theme; Menu #2 (2) greens & browns; Menu #3 (1) ribbon & brads but no bows. I used the oak from SU's Lovely as a Tree and sentiment from Congrats. My card base is Certainly Celery in a 5" square card. On that I mounted the wonderful textured diagonal brown stripes from To the Nines Specialty paper, also two cream brads and Mellow Moss ribbon. My oak is stamped three times using the Stamp-a-ma-jig first in Certainly Celery, then just the base in Close to Cocoa and the leaves in Mellow Moss for variation. The word Congratulations is stamped in Close to Cocoa. I sponged Mellow Moss lightly on the stamped paper to soften the look.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your comforting words. You are right. Being a caregiver is very tiring. But it's also very rewarding. It was hard for me to watch the nurses do so much for him at the hospital.
