The middle of the first week with both kids out for summer break and so far, so good. I have actually made a couple of things (yay!) and they seem to be settling into a routine that is so much calmer (yay, again!). We finished the first swim meet of the season last night and both boys did a great job moving across those lanes. Fun stuff! And speaking of fun, I get to be the hostess for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
In other posts I have spoken of my kids’ soccer. Well, it is that time of year and we are ending another year of training with great coaches. I created this card for my oldest son’s coach. My son asked me to color it to look like him and I did my best to capture that. He has blue cleats and wears an orange goalie jersey so I think I came close. The image is from Lili of the Valley and is called Goalie Saves. I colored it with a combination of the discontinued Blendabilities and Copics. Then I added a sentiment created using the Alphabet Rotary Stamp. I love that I can create an individualized sentiment with that cool little tool! I backed the image with some retired DSP that matched my green grass.
The team has some marvelous interpretations of this pretty basic sketch that I know you will love…I certainly do. I hope you will find some time to play along too. I just love looking at the gallery every week.
I’m off on another trip soon so am trying to fit some more stamping in today before I go. Hopefully I will have something to share with you later this week. Until then, have a great day!
