Happy Trails

I made the following card last month, for my grandson before he went to his first sleep over camp. He was gone for most of the week and had a marvelous time. I wanted to keep the card simple and of course added some money that he could spend at the camp store. It just happened to be "International Left-Handers Day!" This is a holiday that most of us aren't aware of. However, Joey just happens to be left handed. Look carefully and you will notice that this card opens from left to right!! He didn't seem to notice until I pointed it out. We do live in a right-handed world!

The pocket on the right was used to hold the money.
Materials Used:
DP, CS, Stickers: Michael's
Baker's Twine
Sentiment: Computer Generated

This is such a simple card. Boys seem to like the simplicity. I hope that you enjoyed visiting my blog and that perhaps I have inspired you to create a Clean and Simple Card. Thanks for visiting. Please feel free to look around, leave a comment and/or follow this blog. Have a wonderful week.
