Hi Little Girl... The story to this card is a must read!

Designed by Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
My dear husband, Robby is a UPS man... yesterday when he was delivering a package to one of his regular stops, a music store... the little girl who's mom owns the store, came running up to Robby... so excited and with a piece of paper in her hand...and with  her little broken 4 year old speech said "I got you something"... and thrusted a crumpled piece of paper in his hand...with Hi written in yellow magic marker... he eyes were so bright and happy...she was so proud!!... and so was he... it was the first thing he showed me when he walked through the door and he asked me to make her a card... well I knew without a doubt it had to have "Hi" on it...she could read that ... after much thought this is the card I came up with... I so hope that she loves it!!...thank you so much for looking... Hugs, Jeannie
Pooh and Friends
Elephant and its layers cut @ h 5.47..if you set this height the widths will be right... I cut it out twice..from one piece...after it was layered... I cut away the head, front arm...and front leg and popped them from the second layer elephant...on the Cricut I would cut this at 5 1/2 inches.
Gypsy Font
Flower (used the shadow) cut @ w1.53 x h 1.26 inches and welded to the stem (from George).... using the Cricut I would choose a different flower...and cut it @ 1 1/4 inches.... this is just a guess for the flower cut from a different cartridge.
Walk in My Garden
Stem cut @ w 1.72 x h 4.78...I welded one of the tulips cuts to this..cut it all out in green so I would have a place to glue the colored tulip to....on the Cricut I would cut this @ 4 3/4 inches.
Christmas Cheer
Tag and its shadow cut @ h 1.84 inches... the width will be right if you set the height...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 1 1/2 inches.
Learning Curve
"Hi" cut @ h 0.89 inches... the width will be right if you set the height...on the Cricut I would cut this @ 3/4 an inch.



Oh how sweet! She will be so thrilled. What a great story. Thanks for sharing it and your amazing talent! Barb

OH Jeannie,
How sweet! And what a wonderful story that you shared to lift my spirits. I wish everyone could experience an "crumpled" Hi!

The card is absolutely adorable and I am sure that this little girl will love your card.

Now remember to tell Robby not to crumple this card to give it to the little girl =)
