Cardmaking Badge for Girl Scouts

Hi Everybody!

I was just sitting here thinking about a call I got from a friend the other day... She said her daughter's Girl Scout troop chose Cardmaking Badge this time for the badge they wanted to get. I didn't even know there was a Cardmaking badge lol. I was a Girl Scout. If there was one back then I might've started this a lot earlier!

 Anyway, she asked if I would come in and talk to the girls and show them how to make a card so they could get their badge. Of course I said YES! I was thinking we could make Christmas cards and then they can send out the cards they make. I am very honored and happy to share anything I can about cards. I think this will be cute and fun time!

Today I would just like to share a few more cards that I have made over the last few weeks.  Still trying to get myself caught up.  :)


 This was made for someone's friend's birthday. They like purple so I made this one.  The stamps are from Gina K Designs.



This was made for someone's Grandmother for Easter this year.  The cross is from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Close To My Heart.





 These next three cards are for males.  This was made for a gentlemen that runs a private school and my customer wanted an elegant thank you card.  This is what I came up with. This stamp is from Close To My Heart.  I love it.  It's a larger stamp so you can make a super simple card and the stamp will do the work for you.



 This card is for my customer's brother's birthday.  He is in the military so I came up with this.  The stars stamp is from Close To My Heart and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs.



 I made this one for my own brother.  He likes to go shooting and takes my nephew so I added the gun charm.  I was so surprised when he posted something on my Facebook page that he received the most awesome birthday card made by his sister and it had made his day.  Wow!  I think it was the gun charm that did it! LOL!



Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Love all your cards you showcased today - good to see you back on your blog girlfriend. You have too much creativity not to show it off.

What wonderful cards and so nice of you to share your love of card making and talents with the Girl Scouts too. I was a Girl Scout and there was no such badge when I was a member either.
