Welcome back......AND today is my mom and dad's 64th ANNIVERSARY....they are such an inspiration to my me and my husband!!

Today I have a GIRL SCOUT inspired creation.

This past Saturday, my youngest daughter and I attended a Girl Scout tea where her troop received their Silver Award.  For their project, they made teddy bears for our local fire department to give out when they had an emergency call involving children.

This card was made for her leader (and my dear friend Amy) and Abby picked out the sentiment (My Pink Stamper - Everyday Occasions).  Thank you Amy for being their leader all these years!!!

I used the B IS FOR BOY cartridge for the base (welded together on my Gypsy) then I cut two more for the top layers (a bit smaller).  One in green and one in white.  The white piece I cut  down and stamped little butterflies (from Stampin' Up - itty bitty bits). 

On the green piece, I started with the Vintage Notebook stamp from MARKET STREET STAMPS done in VersaMark but I turned the stamp so the lines were vertical, then (in orange again) I used the PEACHY KEEN Extra Small Polka Dot Print (PK-103) and stamped right over the Vintage Notebook.

The “Scout” is from PAPER DOLL DRESS UP and PAPER DOLLS FOR EVERYDAY. For the sash, I used the CAMPIN’ CRITTERS cartridge. It’s the sash from the Eagle cut.

Her sweet little face is from the Everyday Character Face Assortment set (PK-490). 

Please see my DAY 1 post for giveaway information/rules.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back tomorrow with a project that (if I do say so myself) came out SUPER CUTE.
