Girly All Star Cards

Still lovin' Pine's All Star Team stamp set from Papertrey! With track season in full force, my days have been very busy. I'm lucky enough to be able to go to all of Josey's track meets...but a lot of parents just can't take off the entire day to go. So I've kinda become the *track mom* to a lot of the kids.....I text their parents to let them know how their kid did in an event, bring snacks, watch over stuff, etc. It's a good job to have!

I thought it would be nice to make a few cards for some of Josey's closest friends...just to tell them they're doing a great job. Pine's set is perfect!
I stamped the pennant images in Fresh Snow and True Black onto Kraft cardstock. I stitched around the top layer and then matted it with silver metallic cardstock. Embellishments are tied Vintage Buttons, black/white ribbon and Sweet Blush Saddle Stitched ribbon. The background layer is Lisa's Background Basics: Spots and Dots in Fresh Snow Ink. I also added a little stamped strip of it onto my main image layer along with some stars.
I love the soft look to this card for my sporty girls. I may have to get busy and make some more!! Have a great day everyone...I'm off to do a little shopping today before the three days of rain sets in. Blech...need sun...for my garden...no rain...........no rain.

I just need to tell you again..how absolutely wonderful your blog is. It is sooo warm, like a quilt everytime I log on. Your cards are amazing and inspiring, I love your use of paper, ribbons, and buttons...again, like a warm quilt. And you are a fabulous example of a homemaker and mom. I love starting out my morning with a cup of coffee and you. Please, keep doing what you are doing...everything.

I love the sporty cards! They are so soft and pretty. Will you be making any graduation cards? I'd love to have some ideas from you. Both of my girls are graduating this year, high school and college, so I need lots of cards! I already have my graduation inspiration station gathered, but need some ideas. Thanks for all your wonderful cards, etc.

These cards are just adorable!! What a sweet lady you are to take the girls, whose moms can't make the games, under your protective wing!

I love these! Also, this is not related to this paticular post, but I thought you might want to let your readers know that the link to the free CK Becky Font has been fixed!

It's POURING here in TX Mish, so it's probably on the way to you....sorry! We sure did need it though! I love these girly cards...too sweet! I bet the girls will love them! HUGS!

I LOVE that you have taken the role of "mom" to the other girls who don't have their parents with them. I know that I would absolutely cherish the text messages reporting the details and events regarding my daughter.

My husband and I do A LOT of text messaging on Saturdays when both of my boys have baseball games at the same time, but different fields. The little snippets of info really help to keep us connected to one another.

Oh...........LOVE the cards. I just bought both of these sets and can't wait to get them in the mail. ;)

Stop it!!! These are so stinkin' cute, Mishie - and PINK!!! ;)

You have to be the most thoughtful person I have ever met - I'll bet the girls LOVE these!

Mary Jo said...

Love the pink! You are so creative. I don't think you have ever made a card I didn't like!! Thanks for all the inspiration.

Nancy said...

You are amazing. Everyday I look forward to reading your blog. All of your cards and projects are wonderful.
I do have one question for you. With all of the buttons that you use on your cards,do you have a problem with sending them in the mail?

what a clever idea to make star cookies! I'm going to case your idea for Benjamin for treats for his cooler when he goes to a trackmeet (gotta get that set ordered!)

I also love how you make it girly. Show the versatility of this set!

I just have to tell you what an inspiration you are. I come to your blog on a daily basis, and your creations always put a smile on my face. I am making some of your mini notebooks for administrative professionals day, and I just know they will be well-received. Also, you sold me on the tea for two set, and it is on it's way to me. You have challenged me to try new things, and I am in love with your mini-topper cards, and I have made several of them, using your ideas as inspiration, and they have been well received as well. Thanks again for being my "inspiration station" on the web.

Love it! Wish there was a girls' team here that had pink and black as their colors. You're an awesome mom, the girls & team are lucky!
