Sports

A couple of my great nephews are into sports big time and this nephew just turned 11, so I went with a sports theme card.

All the stamps are from the same set, I stamped the shoe with a light blue and then added a bit of darker blue to some areas to make it look a little worn. I fussy cut the star, arrows and the star after stamping them.


The sentiment was part of the paper set I used.  Cut the border with a punch.

My Mind's eye -- boy crazy paper and stamp set
Memory box -- stitched circles die
Fiskars -- Border punch

Your comments on lost mail were very interesting and it makes me wonder how many people I think received a card from me really never did, this is two now that I know for sure never made it.

Wishing you a fantastic week ahead, I will be spending most of it indoors this week I am afraid, they are forecasting with the humidity feels like temps in the 100's.  Keep cool!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Connie

Connie, your great nephews will be thrilled with your sports cards. Love how your shoe looks with the two shades of blue.

It is supposed to be very hot here too. I'm hoping for a bit of rain to cool things off. xo
