The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.

I started this project to make a birthday card for my son. I'm holding this post until after his birthday.
I haven't made many scenic cards, so this was a learning process. I stamped a group of 3 trees multiple times across the card, then stamped some grass clumps in the foreground. I then sponged on some brown for the ground and some blue for the sky. I stamped this deer from Stamper's Best onto white cardstock and fussy cut the image and glued it in front. I decided the sky needed some clouds, so I added some stickers. Then, I die cut another cloud for the birthday sticker.
I decided to work on my design and make some DAD cards for Operation Write Home. I found a few more tree stamps and a mountain stamp from my stash.
