I stayed with a friend in California for a few days. Before I left, I made her a card as a Thank You.
Marcy uses the word frickin' as an adjective. As in, "this is frickin' hard". It seems to be a form of the word freaking and is a slang term she uses a lot.
I decided to do a card using her current favorite adjective. I have a few African animal stamps and thought I could come up with a cute play on words.
I stamped a giraffe using brown ink on manila card stock already cut and folded for a greeting card. I stamped a mother and baby elephant on grey/blue paper embossed it and cut it out. I also stamped and embossed a small pile of rocks that I colored with watercolor pencils and then cut out.
I placed the rocks in front of the giraffe to, hopefully, give depth to the card. I placed some small pieces of foam tape on the elephant to make it stand out.
Satisfied with the front, I went to the computer to write the greeting. My handwriting is atrocious. I wrote African in place of the word frickin' and hoped that Marcy would get the joke! At any rate, she would get a Thank You card!
