We Are The...

Champions!! My son's football team won 25 - 14 during a nail bitter of a game. Honestly, I was nervous until about the last minute of the game. Crazy, but fun!

Here are some photos if you don't mind me sharing! He's 11 and this is his third year playing - I think I am finally getting the hang of things too. (But he still gets annoyed when I ask obvious questions, oh well!)



And, I had time to "play" yesterday with a really fun postcard sketch. It was a good opportunity to pull out this retired skater that I got in a grab bag from The Angel Company. I just love his funky, sassy look! tee hee...

This summer I was in a card board craze and I found this left over piece, flattened it several times through my big shot, and it worked perfectly...do you see the Vintage Santa (text and snowflakes) again in this card?! I tell you, it's a "must have" set!!


Card Materials:
Stamps: Post Card (Inkadinkadoo), all others from The Angel Company
Accessories: lace, cardboard, Rusty snowflake from AC Moore, Burnt Umber, Haystack, Moulan Rouge Palette ink, Scarlet paper from The Angel Company

And now I'll leave you one more photo of my little guy in action. Have a super week!
