Every Card Has A Story

As I said in a previous post,  I love the fact that we can make cards for specific reasons and /or occasions unique to the recipient.  Here is another card that is not beautiful and not even particularly cute  - but here is the story:
Two of our grandchildren that live over an hour away came to spend the night this past weekend.  We thought we had gathered up and packed everything before sending them home.  But after they left, I found their toothbrushes and toothpaste.  When I texted to say what I found, our 7 year old granddaughter told her mom, "Maybe Grandma could mail them to us with one of her wonderful cards."  Now how can I let that go by?

Because I am under time pressures with another project, I made this pretty simple, using all digital images.  I didn't even take time to color them; used pre-colored images.  Both images and background paper are Doodle Pantry (closed now 😢).  The sketch is MFT.
The tube of toothpaste is cut out with a Die-namic Stitched rectangle and backed with green cardstock cut out with the next size up.
I'm not sure my granddaughter with consider this one of the "wonderful" cards, but I think they will get a kick out of it and know I made it with them in mind.   That's what counts.
