Girl Scouts and Sgt Johnson

After a year in Afghanistan, Sgt Johnson had lots of stories to share with the Girl Scouts. We got together to make cards to send to the Troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sgt. Johnson graciously accepted an invitation to come talk and share some of his experiences, making the project even more meaningful for these girls.

Can you see how many Build-a-Bear cards were made at this meeting? We had girls from kindergarten through 4th grade, and they loved these BAB projects. Every bear had an outfit lovingly selected and applied.
Every card has a little note in it to let the service member know that the card was made by love by a scout in Palatine, IL.

If you are in the Chicago area, I would love to work with you and your friends or organization making cards. Feel free to request some private coaching time to design your holiday cards or special event invites.

Happy Stamping!
