It STINKS To Feel Bad - Elegant Edges, George, Doodle Pantry

HI Everyone - SURPRISE!!!  We are still alive!!  I made the card below for a friend of my son, Jacob.  Kobi and Jacob have been friends since Kindergarten.  Kobi had eight teeth pulled and other dental work done today.  Yes, I said OUCH too!!  That seemed like a lot for a ten year old to go through so we made him this card.

To make this card, I used the Quirky Skunk (colored) and the Quirky Skunk papers from Doodle Pantry.  Now isn't she just the cutest??

1.  I covered a craft paper card with striped patterned paper.
2.  Cut an orange rectangle to cover the striped paper then adhered dotted patterned paper on top of that.
3.  I adhered the colored digi to a scalloped circle cut with the Elegant Edges cartridge
4.  I then cut two patterned paper circle with the George cartridge.
5.  I cut two more scalloped circles with the Elegant Edges cartridge which I adhered to the patterned paper circles.
6.  I popped all these on the front of the card.
7.  I added bling in the top right hand corner.

On the inside, I cut a strip of stripped paper and punched the border with the Thread Water punch.  I cut an oblong frame with Elegant Edges and adhered it to a green squre of paper.  Sentiments were created with Word.

Thank you all for your patience with Mom and me.  We have missed posting on our blog but have been extremely busy.  Mom got an offer on her house so we've been trying to find her a place to live near me.  YEAAAAA!!!  Thank so much for stopping by - we do appreciate you!!

Until another day, God bless you!  Donna
