It's a Jeans Day!

Before I share with you my newest card, I wanted to let everyone know about a very important way you can help today to remember our soldiers who are far away from their loved ones.  My friend Anne from Paper Patch Crafts is having a special day of card making going on now where we are challenged to create special cards that she will have delivered to our soldiers.  Her husband is now in Afghanistan and there is no place this hits closer to home than for her.  Please join her over on her facebook page or read about the effort at her blog.  She is also giving away fantastic prizes from her store in appreciation for those that help in the effort.  Please, if you ever wondered what you could do to help....here is your chance.  I for one, am.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled program.:)

I work in an office environment for a Corporation that has thus far only allowed it's employees to wear business attire.  On Thursday a memo went out that our Director gave approval for Casual Fridays. Oh yay!  It's kind of funny how such a small concession can make all the difference.  Everyone is pretty surprised and happy that we can now wear jeans on Fridays.  Today I was asked if I wouldn't mind creating a special card large enough that everyone here at our office could sign it as a thank you to our Director for going to bat for us and making this happen.  Oh how I love creative opportunities.  Here is what I came up with:

This baby has all kinds of bling...from her dedazzled blue jeans to her pearl necklace.  It was a lot of fun to make.  In order to make it large enough for all those comments and signatures, I was asked to figure out a way to add extra pages to it.  Here is what I came up with:

It's kind of funky and whimsical and I pretty much like it.  I thought I would also share a really cool personal signature stamp I recently purchased from Just Rite Stampers.  They have numerous designs to choose from.  This one suited me just fine! 

I hope you enjoy this card.  It was one of those ones that just sort came together fairly easy.  Love it when that happens!
