Finally got to play with the new soccer set from Sparkle N Sprinkle!

Stamp Set 504S - Soccer [00-504P5]$8.90
Stamp Set 504S - Soccer

Our youngest, Calum, had his birthday more than a month ago, and I tried to get him to write his birthday thank you notes on Friday, (after just getting them made that day!) but he went with a friend (and Mom) to a soccer tournament for the weekend, so he had to write them last night when he got home.  (Much to his dismay!!)

I needed to make ten of them, so kept it simple.  A bit of Bullfrog embossing for the "thanks" background.  Then I colored the ball and player with Copics and cut out.  Full directions can be found here if needed:

Wish the set had come out before his birthday - however, at least I got to use it for his thank you notes!  On the inside, I computer generated - "Don't worry - I saved it!", as it looked to me like it was sure to be a goal!  Our Calum is a goalie! Since we live away from Scotland, most of his pressies are monetary, so it worked out well. 

'Till next time,
