Soccer Birthday

Our granddaughter, Chloe, is an avid soccer player. So for her birthday I thought this card would be appropriate. Simple but fun. Thought I would share.
Thanks for looking.


This is a card I made for my dear friend Carol. I used the grapevine wreath from Obsession Impressions and then a little tulip stamp from my stash. I cut out the tulips which took some time. However I think it was worth it. There is a ribbon on the card too but hard to see from the scan. I decided this card would be sent to someone who would appreciate all the cutting.
Thanks for looking

OLW #84 Shoes

This weeks challenge comes from Susan at  We can use as many shades of pink (magenta, hot pink, baby pink, whatever) as we like, but only one shade of orange. We may use black or brown for the sentiment if we wish, but it's not necessary. As my friends know I love shoes. So this challenge was perfect. Stamps are Hero Arts. Ink pads on the shoes are Stampin'Up. The sentiment is Impressions Obsessions and is stamped with Memento. Thanks for looking.
