Soccer Star!

Hello my crafty friends.  I hope you are all well today & finding so time to craft. I'm supposed to be heading off to the city again tomorrow but as I'm writing this it is raining & if it freezes overnight the roads will be a nightmare in the morning! Keeping y fingers crossed!                                                My card today is for my beautiful niece Caitlyn who is turning 12 yrs. old. Caitlyn is quite the soccer player...she plays on a district team & has been invited to try out for the provincial team as well. So, when I won some images from Jackson's Digital Expressions awhile ago this was a natural pick for me. I have colored her in Caitlyn's team colors using prismacolor pencils. The CS is Bazzill & the twill tape & soccer embellies are from my stash. The sketch is from Stamptacular Sunday.  Thanks for taking a look.

  17. Hi Renee... I haven't been by to say hello in a while. Your cards REALLY caught my eye!! :) This soccer one, I just love. My daughter as well (who will be 10 soon) is playing on a Select team this year. She is doing very well. We are proud parents to say the least. Sorry you are having SNOW. Uggh. I like it for about 2 days and then I'm done. Fantastic cards Renee. I am going to check out a few more.
