Fabulous Friday - Good Luck Vet :-)

Hi there everyone.

Oh I have had a lovely few days.  I went on a road trip last Sunday to go and see my, eldest daughter, Shannon in college. It's a 6 hour drive, but very scenic and I loved seeing Shannon.  I came back late on Thursday, although my original day was meant to be Wednesday.  There was a snow storm back home - so too dangerous on the roads.  Ah well, more Mother/Daughter time :-)

Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes, so why not come along and enter.

Shannon is just finishing her first year in college to be a Veterinary Technician and that is the reason for this card this week.  I wanted to wish her good luck with her Second Semester exams.

I couldn't resist using the vet from the wonderful Work & Play 12 collection.  You can also get this as a Mini Vet/Dog Groomer/Cat Groomer Bundle or just as the single design sheet too :-)

I love all the little paw prints and elements you get in this Design Sheet, as well as the great sentiments! 

I use one extra paper, which I printed from the Mini Bundle, to put behind the other bits and pieces.  I love making a Z fold card, and don't make them often enough :-)

For the inside message panel, I printed another paper from the Mini Bundle and then used the largest of the Polkadoodles Elegant Nesting Dies.  And added some of the left over embellishments from the Design Sheet.

Added a little dimension, to the front, with some foam tape under some of the embellishments and main image.  All the edges of all the layers have been inked too.

Shannon loved the card, as this has been her dream since she was 8 years old - another 2 years of college and she'll be out in the big wide world :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

  21. Ahh...such a cute cat card! I love it and I love cats sometimes too much. I'm a bit sad this week as we had to let one of our most loved cats (almost 17) go to sleep on the 17th. She's better off now and not hurting but still I miss her. I knew you'd gone on a fun trip and glad you had a great time.
