New Season and a Card!

No, I'm not talking about Fall. Even though I'm thrilled it's here! Last Saturday, we officially "kicked off" **LOL! get it?!?** the new soccer season. Friday night, coach Pete and his wife decided to have the team and their families over for a potluck. Everyone had a great time and it was nice to be able to just socialize and not worry about drills.

The girls got new pink jerseys this year so I decided to use Stampin Ups new Pink Pirouette cardstock, along with Baja Breeze, on my thank you card to them. I also used a very cool new product from Sheetload Shortcuts. They have clear and frosted cardstock! The best part is it's "fingerprint-resistant"! So cool - and very sturdy!

Stamps used: Office Accoutrements, I Love Soccer (SU! Retired)Here are a couple pics of Sarah in her cool pink jersey!

Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.

Blog Candy Alert!

I'm not sure if you've seen the wonderful previews over at SheetLoad ShortCuts, but they are FABULOUS!!! I can not wait to order these on the 15th! They're offering a win before you can buy it Sampler Pack! Check it out now!

It's flattery right?

I've often heard that imitiation is a form of flattery. Well when I saw this card on Kristina Werner's blog, I just knew I had to make it for a baby shower I went to over the weekend. How cute is that? And, she enabled me even further by including a template for the layers!

I didn't have and couldn't find the same stamp set, but I think I'm pretty close with this one from STAMPENDOUS! The cardstock I used is Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip. Ink was Purely Pomegranate, Black Stazon, and I colored the onesies with my Copics and watercolor brush.

Hope you like it!
