It was my DH's b-day yesterday. We got to enjoy sleeping in til late and then have the company of friends that had driven in to stay the night w/us on their way to Canada. The kids got to all play together (our 2 boys and their 2 girls) and we all stayed up way too late just chatting the night away!
So, here's the card I made for my hubby. He's quite the soccer fan--in fact, he was watching the Women's World Cup game while I was busy crafting the card. I won this stamp from a local craft store and I was thrilled b/c I knew I'd be using it--a lot!
I went w/patterned paper for the background and added a ribbon w/a soccer ball on it. Then I stamped the word "score" over and over as a mat for the main image. I had found a soccer ball punch in the clearance section of a local scrapbooking store so I used it to add a small border to the mat. I took the main image and stamped it. Then colored it in and added glossy accents to the soccer ball. Final details were just some white stitching using a white pen and some black stiching using a black marker. Done! :) He loved it!
So grateful for another year of life God has given my husband...He's such a blessing to me and my boys!
