Default I can't believe I never thought of this....

It never occured to me before yesterday to combine some of my stamps with a blank maze grid to make a child' card. I am so excited about the possibilities with this idea. Here is an Easter Card for some of my younger nieces and nephews using this idea. "HELP LIL CHIRP FIND THE EASTER EGGS"

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...ll&limit=last1

If anyone can tell me how to paste in a "word document" in this thread, I would be more than to do so. But then maybe this idea is old hat and I am just behind the times.

That is a wonderful idea, and is new to me, lol, not old hat at all.

Your card is so adorable, too.

"Well Gawawaw-lly" (Remember to use the Gomer Pyle voice)boy does this date me....
I was almost too embarrassed to post this card and idea here, thanks for all the encouragement. Y'all just made my day! Only one wee problem, my brain is filled with all the fun stamp combos that could be used as mazes and there just isn't enough time to do them all. I really got to get the extra room that has all my stamp stuff and craft 'crap', as my husband calls it, cleaned out so my 21 year old son has a place to come home to after spending the last 2 years in Peru--he gets home on Wed, gee it's only Friday....there's plenty of time and one has to have priorities! LOL

Thanks again, I love this site, y'all are just so dang nice!

What a truly inspired idea! Thank you so much for sharing. I'm always looking for ideas for kids cards, and this is perfect. You could make some funny grown-up cards, too. Like, "Help Ms. Martini find the olives", or "Help Mr. Oldman find the Fountain of Youth", or "Help Ms. Fancypants fine the perfect shoes." I LOVE this idea! Julie is right, you're a GENIUS!

I just LOVE your card - how creative! I know my kids would go nuts over this!

To post a word document, just click on the paperclip (when you reply to the thread) and click "Browse" to find the file on your computer. Then click "Upload". Hope that helps!

What a clever girl you are!!! Great idea.

Might have to use this on the invitations I am planning on making for the adoption party of our second son. A Blue's Clues party is what we are thinking of having and this card idea would be perfect.

Ok....let's see if I can attach the word document with the MAZE GRID. There are 4 on the 8.5x11, leaving room for stamping around them. Thanks Cassandra for the uploading tips. That sure is a little sweetie on your Avatar, I assume that is baby NATHAN.

Cross your fingers.....

You are so clever. Hard making just the right card for the kids. Bet if you did this for a school age child, the card would be shared with classmates. What a neat idea for Valentine's, too.

With 4 grandchildren, ages 8 and younger plus another one due in the Fall, this would be so much fun for them. They love Grandma to make them cards. Thanks for sharing. Now I have toe wait until my son comes home to figure out how to open the attached file. I put this in my favorites. Thanks again!
