I used Smoky Shadow cardstock which is a slightly softer alternative to plain black cardstock, I love it! I also punched stamped some stars from Star Print on Soft Stone cardstock, punched them out and glittered them. The patterned paper is from the Black and White Basics paper collection and reminded me of the lines on the track. More small stars were stamped on the inside of the cards.
Each of the coaches came up to me at awards night to thank me for the card and candy bar. Josey's coach, Gina (who is my friend too) mentioned during her awards speech that she loved the little pats on the back and card and gifts she got. It feels good to know that people appreciate your little gifts.....as much as we appreciate the time they spend with our kids. It only takes a little bit of time but it means SO MUCH to people.
By the way.....Josey lettered in basketball and track this year as a 6th grader. She did really awesome in all of her sporting events and was so proud to get her letter this year. Now we're headed into softball season. Eric and I formed a brand new team this year so we've been working hard to gather up all the new equipment and uniforms. We're the Dirt Divas, Josey isn't quite happy about that *diva* part though. I designed us a logo and we got some awesome uniforms so I can't wait to see them at the first game. The girls are out of school on this coming Thursday, I can't wait!!
