Farewell Luca - Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Side Step Card -

Well they say all good things must come to an end, and so it is with our brief stint of hosting our Foreign Exchange Student, Luca.  He has become a very special member of our family, this sweet Italian young man, and we will miss him dearly.   I made him this card as a farewell and to let him know that he will always have a place in our hearts and our family!

This week at Tanmy's Scrapin Corner we are challenging you all to make a side step card.  They really are very easy to create and there are lots of great tutorials out there, just type Side Step Card tutorial into your favorite search engine and you will find lots of different variations.  Be sure to enter your creation  here to have a chance at winning a prize from one of two Digi Companies which I showcased both of in my card; Bugaboo Stamps  and SK Digi's.

 So if you are wondering why Luca Crist, it's a family joke, when we took Luca to Universal Studios we had purchased a two day pass for him, they asked for all the names of our family members and of course we stated Luca's name too.  When the pass was given to us it named him as Luca Crist.  We all laughed and joked that it was official, he was a Crist now!  He took it all in his usual calm and sweet way, the kids loved it!

 The bandana paper is from Authentique, I colored the images with my Copic Markers, the letter stickers are from Tim Holtz and I added some additional stars with a stamp from my stash.  I also used Stickles to add the glittery touches.

I will be entering this into the following challenges: - red, white and blue
