One of a kind

My son's over 1000 miles away at college, and has had a rough first few weeks due to the flu that our family shared with him before we left. Wasn't that nice of us? *groan*

So, I thought I'd send him a little care package to cheer him up. This is the card I made to go with the package. I paper pieced one of the trees from Papertrey's Father knows Best and used a sentiment from Friendly Expressions by Anna Wight (Whipper Snapper Designs).

I used Mojo Monday's Sketch 105 found HERE.


Supplies:
Stamps: Father knows Best (Papertrey), Friendly Expressions (Whipper Snapper Designs)
Paper: Twiggy (Memory Box), Birchtone Dark (Prismatics)
Ink: Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink)
Accessories: Ribbon (Martha Stewart), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Border Punch (EK Success), Button (PTI), Corner Rounder Punch, Dimensional Tape (Scotch)

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you're having a wonderful week!
Happy Stamping!

My daughter is 700 miles away and it is tough for us moms when they are sick. I hope he feel better soon. This is a terrific 'manly' card to send.
