Coaches card

I created this card for my daughters athletics coach as a thankyou for all the time he has put in with her training over the past few months. We really appreciate it and it has really helped her this year. Well, she did make it to STATE for the first time with her school cross country!!!! So I think that says it all! We are also very proud of her achievements.

Items used on this card were: whisper white cardstock, DSP - newsprint and celebrations, stamp set was a retired hostess set-picture this.

Thanks for looking

Feeling un-inspired????

If you are anything like me, somedays you just feel so un-inspired and have real difficulty in designing the 'right' card. Thats when its a great idea to grab your Stampin' Up! idea book and catalogue. Its there for you to use and take inspiration from and its so full of fantastic ideas, you'll be sure to find the right design to use.

Thats exactly what I have done today with this card. I have been a bit lost, (or I've lost my mojo) with cardmaking lately. I have found it again thanks to the brand new catalogue which is about to be released! Its absolutely amazing!! Cant wait for everyone to see it (it wont be long, its released on Sept 1st). But I found this design for a stamp set I already have and it was quite easy to do. I love the end result and its certainly better than what I had in mind.

So don't sit there pondering on a design, just grab your catalogue and flick through and you'll be sure to find the perfect card.

thanks for looking
