A Tree Sings Hope

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Biscotti

Happy Monday! yeah, that's not what most people say, I realize, but I HAVE had a cup of coffee already, so it IS a happy happy day! :)

I want to share a card with you today that I am sending out to my son, Mick. in fact, as soon as I finish typing up this post, I plan to put it right out in the mailbox so it will be on its way. Diane at Daydream Designs has so many unique digi images and papers, but I was immediately drawn to every one of her sets that contain trees. you know how I am about nature! I just love these trees and the sentiments she has created to go with them.

I've used the black line tree image and one of the sentiments from the Hug a Tree set. there are some neat pre-colored images in the set, too, if you like that format. papers are from the Basic Grey Origins collection. it seemed perfect to add a few little twigs tied in SU! linen thread. some buttons, a little smidgen of gingham ribbon, and tiny leaf flourish (die by Cheery Lynn) complete the card. fairly simple since it's for my Mick. :)  but I know he will love it because he is even more of a nature lover than I am, if you can believe it.  just needed to remind him that his momma is always thinking about him!!! :)

Today is the last day to sign up for my Nifty at Fifty Birthday Blog Candy! I'll post a winner tomorrow! :)
