Amazing Goalie for Coach

Amazing Goalie for CoachA 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!

Santa! published on 1 Comment on Santa!


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.
