Masculine Sympathy Card

Jojot challenged us to make a masculine sympathy card. Hmm, a double dog dare if you ask me, sympathy cards are difficult and a masculine one at that? Well I gave it some thought and figured I would make what I call a four square card. I used DP by SEI, it is actually Christmas paper but I thought the browns and pine cones work nicely for the challenge. I stamped branches from Best Blossoms in chocolate and then sponged with old olive. My sentiment is from the dollar stamps at M's, it had a flower on it which I did not use. Black ribbon as the austere embellishment and done! Thanks Joanne for a great challenge and thank YOU for looking!!!

About Me

My photo
Hi everyone! My Name is Nancy Levine, known as NANCYRUTH on SCS. I have began stamping 20 years ago, though I put everything in the attic for about 10 of those during the hectic years of my single motherhood. I went to a stamping up party about 5 years ago and the stamping flame was rekindled and i have stamped almost every day since then. I work full time in a lighting store and enjoy my career in sales which allows me to fund my crafting habits. I am also a beader and spend my free time stamping, swimming and making jewelry! I look forward to charting my creative journey through my new blog. Fast forward.... After 13 months of unemployment due to the economic downturn I completed my Therapeutic Recreation certification and now work in a skilled nursing facility creating and implementing recreational programs for the residents. I also had the priviledge of working at Beadz Boutique in Darien Ct. where I fine tuned many of my beading skills!
