For Love of the Game

Hi all!  Holy cow- I can't believe tomorrow is Friday!  Not that I'm complaining, mind you, but it just seems like this week has gone by super fast.  Probably because I've been busy :)  Between work and cards it just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day...I've been busy creating though, just no time to blog them but I'm making time now if it kills me, lol!  I needed a thank you card for the coach of a girls basketball team and didn't really have any stamps that would work so I set out on the handy dandy internet to see what I could find- and look at this cutie I found- adorable right?  I found it on Etsy in Stephanie Corfee's shop and I just love her- she was absolutely perfect for what I was making- if you think she's adorable too you should definitely check out Stephanie's shop as there are tons of cute images there.  Since the coach is a guy- and I have a terrible time with guy cards- I kept things pretty simple, just a few layers with some design paper from We R Memory Keepers and a sentiment sticker.  I was left staring at it for a bit as I finished up because it just felt a little bare but I didn't dare pile on the flowers or bling, lol :)  Oh well, I'm sure I'll be back to my 'pretty' and my 'fancy' in no time- wouldn't want to suffer from withdrawals!  Thanks so much for popping by to see my latest creation- more to come soon :)

Fabulous card you have created. Great stamp which you have coloured so beautifully, I love the brick wall and how you have the different layers which gives it depth. Thank You for sharing with us at Lady Anne's Challenges. I hope we see you again soon.
