Happy Birthday, Girl Scouts!


 

Hi friends!
  I hope your weekend has been wonderful!

Once a month, my friends Barb, Jeanette and I 
 create a card based on just one stamped image!
This group - the 3 Musketeers - is Jeanette's brainchild 
and it was fun to be invited to be a part of it!


It's super fun because our cards are always so different.
We take turns choosing an image and this month, it was my turn to hostess. 
We're a Scout family!
My daughter was she was a Girl Scout for many years
and now my son is a Boy Scout and just made Life Scout rank!

 March 12th is the Birthday of the Girl Scouts!
It's the day when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered 
the first Girl Scouts as an organization.
There were 18 girls and they registered in Savannah, Georgia.



"Truly, ours is a circle of friendships, united by our ideals."

~ Juliette Gordon Low
 I thought it would be fun to create a card with a Scout stamp
so I found my The Greeting Farm Anya stamp from Cute Troop.
This stamp set is long retired but still a favorite!
Since my daughter started her Scouting venture as a Daisy,
I used some background paper with daisies on it.
I asked Barb and Jeanette to add peach somewhere on their card
as a nod to the Georgia connection :)



 Here is the inside of my card:
Girl Scouts definitely involves friendship, honor, loyalty and teamwork!


I used a sentiment inside the card from another stamp set from
The Greeting Farm - but it works :)
When I sat down to create my card, I couldn't find the sentiments 
that actually go with this set .. so I did my best scouting and improvised!
Barb's card is here and Jeanette's card is here with this image!
Do you have Scouts in your family, too?
What is your favorite part of Scouting?
I loved Scouting with my daughter
and didn't mind camping in the tents and cooking and earning the merits badges!

Now, with my son, my husband took over and it's a good thing!
Camping tween-age boys = smelly boys, LOL!
NO. THANK. YOU!

Hee hee!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, bigger blessings! ♥

 *note!*
 TGF does have a angel policy but I asked Marie - owner and creator of TGF -
 for permission + she gave her blessing to stamp out 2 images for my 2 friends!

  1. I just love your card, Kelly. Super design, lovely colours and what a great image. It brought back memories of my childhood, although it's Girl Guides in the UK. I come from a Guiding family. My Mum was a Guide leader, then I became one after being a Brownie, Guide and Ranger and now my daughter runs a Guide company. I actually still own a Girl Scout handbook from the 1960s which my American penpal gave me when she came to the UK. xx

  3. Amazing idea and your card looks just ADORABLE!! Love so much the girl and the colours! When I was a baby my cousins were scouts and they enjoyed so much camps and related activities!! :D Here in Italy they have Guides with funny nicknames, as Akela or Baloo... In my imagination my cousins at camps were as Mowgli in the jungle! LOL
