After 7 years of sweating and practicing, and trophy size bruises and winning and losing and no lazy days in August, Pop Warner football is finally over for my son. It is very sad! He is growing up! Mixed emotions here over this.
Jacob's team may not have always come out on top on the scoreboard BUT his coach certainly did. What an awesome "Gentleman!" Unlike other coaches I have seen who demand respect but seldom give it, Coach Smith gave respect from the onset and mentored the team with dignity, respect and gave each team member something to feel good about themselves! Win or lose! He exemplified what youth coaching should be! Jacob learned a lot from this man!
So I made this card and wrote a little note of thanks for 7 great years!!

The window is very dark in this picture, It looks much better in person!
I used SU stamp set touchdown and added the team initials.
actetate,foam tape, micro beads and a textured card from ????. I think it came out ok. I was trying not to pretty it up too much!

Oh Fiddlesticks!!!

I finally get a camera so I am excited and I will be able to post my stuff again and what happens---- Well I am out of adhesive so I can't make nothing!!! No tape No glue no corner pieces nothing! (Here is where I am whining and stomping my feet, having a great little hissyfit!!) :(

So once the little darlings have all gone home I will go to the store and get some more adhesive. then I can make something positively spectacular and post!! LOL

Stay tuned!

I made this card for a friend who recently lost her son unexpectedly! I can't think of a worse thing to have to go through.
The colors are unusual for a sympathy card but they are her favorite.
What I used:
SU Whisper white cs, Real Red cs, and Black
Stamp set SU Gentler Times
Misc ribbon and brad
Cuttlebug textile folder and red and black ink
