Rooted in Thoughtfulness

I went to bed last night with plans of getting up early and hitting the road at 6:00 AM for a baseball tournament, only to wake up to a message that games had been delayed by two hours.  My first thought???  Sweet, some extra time to stamp!   I will never complain about that!  The only bummer is that one of my boys also woke up not feeling well, so we stayed behind this morning and missed the first game.  He's feeling a bit better, so we are getting ready to pack up and head out for game two later this afternoon.

Before we head out, I wanted to share what I made this morning, thanks to my unexpected extra stamp time.  A co-worker asked me to make a card for her to send to her uncle who has just recently started cancer treatment.  With a little help from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches and Rooted In Nature, I created a simple Thinking of You card.
I am so happy this stamp set and coordinating dies carried's one of my favorites!  And I'm still stuck on the Subtle Embossing Folder...its just the right amount of texture!

The Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack came in perfect when adding the finishing touches to the card.  I love that the Leaves Trinkets carried over too!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Whisper White, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake
Ink ~ Mossy Meadow, Memento, Stampin' Blends: Mossy Meadow, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede
Stamp Set ~ Rooted In Nature
Other Supplies ~ Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, Nature's Roots, Leaves Trinkets

And we're off...wish us luck that our drive is uneventful and we have a successful second game!

Have a great Saturday!

Happy Stamping!


  1. Beautifully done, Bree! This is perfect for the recipient. And I agree with you about this embossing folder. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! The tree is amazing and I love all the details - the subtle embossing(!), the ribbon, and the little leaves. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. Oh, that tree is magnificent! You put together some fabulous colors to make the tree pop off the page. Hope the game went well! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
