today was Mimi's first soccer game! she plays on team Galaxy in a local youth soccer league- they won 12-4 over the SpeedKickers & it was so fun to watch all the little kids in a 3 on 3 game- they are just adorable & impressive to watch on the field! i had a great time cheering them on! here's a shot of the hubs & daughter right before the start:
they're so awesome!! to celebrate, i made my daughter a card that we gave her after the big game:
i didn't have a soccer or even a sports image in my collection, so i downloaded this adorable Soccer Anya digital image from The Greeting Farm (they have adorable rubber and digi stamps-i'm lovin' them!!). i enlarged the image quite a bit in Photoshop (the finished card size is 6x6) & printed it out on heavy weight (67lb) vellum. i colored it with copics in the galaxy team colors (orange-y yellow & black). i've had this sheet of patterned paper in my stash forever from an old kit sorry to say i didn't write down the manufacturer-but it's cute, no?! the heart is stamped from one of my favorite MFT stamp sets called Bling 'Bers- it's fun to fill these images with crystals (i used the team colors again!) i sponged on some light blue ink for the sky too- it's hard to see in the pic.
here's the inside-
just some scraps of the same paper & a sentiment from the same Bling 'Bers set. just quick & fun for the kiddo's big game! we spent a wonderful day together! thanks for stopping by!!
