Stamping with the Girl Scouts

Last week I was so happy to be invited to a local Girl Scout troop to make cards with them.  I made up the following two examples that the girls could possibly make with the punches and papers that I provided:

Girl Scouts Forever Friends
Girl Scouts Friends
I provided each girl with a bag containing a whisper white blank card, envelope, ribbon, DSP card front and I divided the stickers from the Ice Cream Parlor Quick Accents Pack among them.  I also brought three punches for the stamps and coordinating card stock and circle punches.  These are the girls and their cards.  Their cards were each unique and showed a lot of talent!  A good time was had by all.  And here are their cards:


Next week I will be heading over to Carbondale to another Girl Scout troop.  Here is one of the cards we will be making that night:
Girl Scout Happy Birthday
  I was cleaning up and inventorying my paper for year-end(yea, I know it's a little late, but the accountant extraordinaire that I am I can back up to 12/31 numbers) and found the pumpkin pie die-cut blooms-retired.  Thought that the girls would enjoy using them on the their cards.
