Hello Hello Hello, so glad that you could pop by!
What mom hasn't heard the phrase, 'Mom, can you make me...'. I got a call from my darling daughter asking if I would please make a going away card that 50+ people from her office could sign. One of her co-workers at the Girl Scouts of America office is going back to school at Cambridge University for her masters degree. So I started thinking....
First off I knew that I had the Girl Scouts 2013 from ScrappyDew
pattern file I could use.http://www.scrappydew.com/store/outdoor_palz/ But I was stumped as to what else to put on the card. So I fretted, but then the lightblub suddenly came on. She is traveling so maybe a jet plane and some luggage. ScrappyDew to the rescue!!! I had in my files the Vacation Plane 2013 file that would just fit the bill. http://www.scrappydew.com/store/world/
So now you have the lyrics. I used the girl scout with the cookie boxes. I removed the cookie boxes and put luggage and a passport in her hands instead. Next I photocopied my map of Oregon and used that for background paper. I made the jet plane and positioned it so it's leaving Oregon. So here is the front.
The card is 8"x8" and I knew that I needed extra pages for good luck wishes. So I cut a 12x12 in half, and made 4 extra pages. Punched holes in the center and made a small book. Then I decorated the last two pages to make it special for the gal that is leaving. Here is the inside.
I think on such short notice the card came out really nice. I was told by my DD that she just loved it!
I just have to say thank goodness for ScrappyDew. I know, I know, you say that every time. But gang, I really believe this. ScrappyDew has amazing files that can be mixed and matched in hundreds of ways to come up with exactly what you want to make. Next week, I have a card for a new neighbor of mine that is just adorable. Bonus is that it is a Halloween card!
One last bit, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DARLING DAUGHTER! I love you so very much, punkin.....
Bright blessings, Jana
