This card was made for a military Mom who is almost finished her 6 months overseas. Before she went she bought 2 jars and filled both with jellybeans - enough to equal the # of days she would be away. Each day her daughter at home would have one and she would have one as well. They both watched the jellybeans disappear. I tried to add the maps to further personalize it, but but CANADA on top because she's coming home!

What a touching story and wonderful card to commemorate the experience. You're a great friend! I, too, pray for a safe return and add my deep gratitude to her and all our service men and women everywhere. Thanks!!!

What an absolutely *perfect* card for this occasion. I do not usually like collage cards, but this one is so well balanced and meaningful that it stands out. It will be a treasure not only for your special friend--but for her daughter to keep and treasure over the years. What a nice gift from the heart.
