Making Good Use of a Sunday Afternoon (and scraps)

One of my daughters takes seriously the Biblical mandate to take care of orphans and widows.  She and her husband have adopted three children (and have two bios) and every Sunday after church, they drive to my mom's (about 10 miles), fix lunch and spend the afternoon with her.  I often show up too.  Now that football season is over, my daughter suggested helping me with cards that I would send to OWH.  I am trying to plan cards the kids can help with.  I also think this might be a great way to use up some scraps so I take piles of scraps and we try to do something with them.  I finished this card at home but did all the strips at my mom.  I really like how it turned out.
