Hi Stampers,

Sorry for the lapse between posts.  My neighbor needed 80 die cuts for the Giving Tree where she works.  So I was happy to whip those out for her.  I used stars and stitched circles and then embossed the circles with the Holly Embossing Folder.  I had the card I am sharing today on my work space for about a week.  I finally finished it yesterday.  I used the Nature Sings stamp set and the Lovely As A Tree stamp set.  I sponged the background then stamped the Elk with Chocolate Chip ink.  I used the Stampin’ Blends to color in the Elk. I masked the Elk and stamped the trees twice then added the single pine trees. The base card is Soft Suede CS.  I made this a masculine birthday card.  It seems that type eludes my imagination so when I get an idea for one I go with it.  Take a look.  I hope you enjoy.  I had fun piecing this together.

PAWS TO PONDER

Hugs and happy stamping,  MB
