Masculine Encouragement Card

It seems that there are quite
a few friends from church who are in nursing homes or recovering at home from surgeries right now. Always a difficult time to go through, but even more so at Christmas.


I made this card entirely from scraps
laying here on my desk, including the card base that I had cut and folded awhile ago and didn't use. I don't know how many times I've picked up that green floral flourish only to lay it back on the ever growing pile.


I used Spellbinder's Labels
One, Tim Holtz's Alterations Mini Reindeer & 25 Set and Martha Stewart's Traditional Scallop punch.


The inks sponged on the edges 
are Evergreen Bough and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I'm praying this card will be an encouragement.
As of today... I have our
Christmas tree up, the house decorated (inside only... still have to do the outside), most of the gifts bought, and some cards and tags made. I still have a long way to go... but I'm enjoying every minute!

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs!
Linda

Linda, your card is sure to be uplifting for someone. It is gorgeous and such a beautiful verse. You really did great with scraps and it's always nice to use them. Love the deer and the flourish is super..great paper, too. Can you tell I love it all? LOL
