Daisy Scout Leader Thank You

Any Girl Scouts out there?  My daughter is just finishing up her first year as a Daisy Scout.  She had a great time!  There are 2 leaders in her troop of 18-19 girls, so we collected money for some gift cards for them and had the girls sign an extra large card for each leader to say thanks.
The flower is in the colors of the Daisy “learning petals”.
  • Stamp Set: Curly Cute (item # 117014 annual catalog p. 138)
  • Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
  • Ink: Basic Black craft ink
  • Extras: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, small oval punch (retired), full heart punch (for the “pennant” ends of the thank you banner), scallop trim border punch (item# 118402 annual catalog p. 183), Square Lattice Embossing Folder (item"# 119976 annual catalog p. 189),
Do you need a thank you card for your Girl Scout leader?  Order a custom card from me by emailing me at

April Stamp Class—Wedding

I got married almost 12 years ago, and our wedding colors were just black and white.  Somehow my husband, his family, and groomsman all ended up wearing blue accents, and my family all ended up in red.  Not sure what happened there.  Since then, I have always gravitated towards black and white themed wedding cards.  Here’s another  card we are doing in class this month.  Click the links to view the other cards from class: mother’s day, graduation, and teacher appreciation.
I CASED this one from Heather Klump.
  • Stamp Set: Apothecary Art (item#125525 wood, 125527 clear, annual catalog p. 102; retired sentiment stamp
