End of another Season

Yesterday marked the end of the boy's fall soccer season. Regular season, anyway. It looks like Joshua's team finished second place and will play in a tournament the first weekend of November. I'm praying for nice weather. I always like to make a little thank-you card for the coaches-gee, who would have guessed, right. LOL! Anyway I whipped these four cards up in a jiffy the other night, thanks to Brandi and her awesome sketches for the Limelight Challenges. This week she gave us this sketch to work into a manly card ( there seem to be alot of masculine card challenges lately). Joshua's team is green and Ryan's team is orange, so I made two of the cards in each color. I used Kraft as my base and Mellow Moss for Joshua's coaches and Tangerine Tango for Ryan's coaches. I added brads and twill for accents. I think they are both great additions for a masculine card. I can't get enough of twill ribbon. I've been buying a bit of it as of late. The white and moss I used here came from Limelight. Check out the store if you havne't, it is packed with lots of cool embellishments, stamps, and paper. Here's a close up of one of the cards. I'm sure glad I got this soccer set when Stampin' Up! was retiring it. I have used it a ton! Now I want the T-shirt set that Gina K sells. I tried to go for that look here, but the jersey stamp was a bit small. It looks okay, but if I had that other set, I think it would look so much better! I know, I know, I always want more...have a wonderful Sunday! Hugs,


  1. These are ADORABLE! How fun and masculine! Glad you played along!!

  2. Lisa - love the cards!! My son's soccer season ends in two weeks and I just might have to steal this!! And I have the Gina K shirts...I'll be sure to link you if I do it!!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. These are just 2 cute I know the Coaches will just love them!!!

  4. Those are too cute! I love how you coordinated the colors with the boys' soccer colors! The brads are just perfect!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
