The Mighty Oak

Hey there, stampers!
Happy Wednesday!

As I mentioned on Monday, I'm going to show you a masculine card today to balance out the girly card I showed you on Monday.  This is one of the cards we made at our SOS gathering on Monday at Symposium Coffee in Old Town Sherwood.  If you've never been there before, you really should join us sometime.  Symposium Coffee is Sherwood's gathering spot.  It is in an old two-story house and we meet in the largest room upstairs, which was probably the master bedroom originally, but now it's called the conference room.
They serve Stumptown Coffee and they have some very interesting beverages, including a Lavender Latte.  I haven't tried one yet, but it's on my list.

Wednesday's card du jour showcases the mighty oak from the ever-popular Lovely As a Tree stamp set, by far the oldest stamp set in the Stampin'Up!catalog.  If you don't already own this classic set, be sure to get it before it retires, which it is bound to do someday.  Here's the card...

While the sentiment on this card says Happy Thanksgiving, you could use almost any sentiment from
Teeny Tiny Wishes (they all fit in the Word Window punch I used here).  It could be a birthday card, a congratulations card, a sympathy card... really, just about anything you'd like it to be EXCEPT a card to welcome a sweet little girl.
Here's a quick list of the products:

Stamps: Lovely as a Tree (p 78), Teeny Tiny Wishes (p. 44)
Ink:  Early Espresso for the tree and sentiment, Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron for the sponged background
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Sponges, Dimensionals, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Early Espresso

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog!  Please share it with a friend, as I'm in need of more readers. May your Wednesday fly by quickly, leaving you only two more days 'til the weekend.  Hope you'll find some time to stamp something pretty today!
