A quick post for Saturday since I had some things I wanted to share. Many of you know that besides driving the Airbus for United, I spend a great deal of my time driving the mom “bus” as a soccer mom. At the end of the year, I always feel like I need to do something special for coaches. These people give so much of themselves in their dedication to training the kids. I pulled out my Goalie Saves stamp from Lili of the Valley and this time I colored him to look like my youngest. Little boy is also a keeper (these kids really stress my nerves in games!) and he wears an orange shirt and has shiny blue cleats. The yellow blonde is pretty accurate too! I colored him using my Zig Clean Color Pens. They are AWESOME for this kind of image!! My sentiment is a favorite from one of my old Paper Pumpkins and is a go-to for so many cards. My little keeper wrote a sweet note inside and delivered it last weekend. I hope coach enjoyed a small token of how much he is appreciated!!
Well, back out today for a trip. I have a “guest designer” for my post tomorrow on Father’s Day. Hope to see you then. Thanks for stopping in!
Happy Friday to you! I hope your week has been great! We have been unseasonably warm but I’m still plugging away at my Christmas cards. I pulled out this amazing set called Santa from Lili of the Valley. It has wonderful detail, doesn’t it?! I used my Zig Clean Color Markers to color him. I love that my 48 pack of pens gives me enough to get all the shading and colors that I could possible need. The image was stamped with Black WPlus9 Pure Color Dye Ink and the sentiment was stamped after I colored everything in Black Versafine Ink. The WPlus9 ink really holds up to the watercoloring and the Versafine is great for sentiments. This sentiment comes from A Gift from Santa (SU). I cut the image panel and a Real Red panel using the Simon Says Stamps Stitched Rectangles Dies. I tied a double layer of Basic Black Baker’s Twine onto a Basic Black card base.
I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did coloring it. I actually colored the panel last week and was happy to finally turn it into a finished card.
Over the next few days I will be taking a check ride with United so I’ll be off from the blog. Lots of studying and fun with emergency training in the simulator. But I already have a card ready for next Wednesday’s Freshly Made Sketches complete with a video. Until then, I hope you have wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping in.
