It has taken me almost three days to make this card for Drew!! Of course, it didn’t help that yesterday he was traveling the 8 hours home from college after finals. Three hours into the trip he calls he had just driven by two bad accidents. I was just glad it wasn’t him involved and that they hadn’t closed the Interstate and made them wait for hours! He was able to drive on the shoulder around them. Whew!! It is hard to get things done when someone is calling all the time. He was still three hours away from home and I see we’re supposed to start getting freezing drizzle!! More phone calls. On and on the day went. FINALLY around 4-4:30 he pulls into the drive-way!!!! RELIEF!!!!
I made a Pocket Tag card that I have made before. I love them, but they are a lot of work with all the images you need to have. The tutorial is here. This will be a long post with lots of pictures.

I was going to put Flower Soft on the garland. Randy told me not to bother he really liked it this way. That it just popped. I liked that idea. Less work for me!
Whew!!! Finally done with the pics.
