You're a Star!

Hi there!

Wow - another week rolled by so quickly!  Suffice to say I'm still here and bearing up under the weight of being a working single mom for this past week!  Hubby will be back late Friday night - geez, it can't come quick enough!!

Anyways, I was asked to make a thank you card for a synchro coach ... mmm, that had me stumped for a minute!  Well, this is what I came up with and I've used the colours of the team (Blue & Black).  It's hard to see but there is some cheesecloth behind the coloured image which I've glued the little silver stars on to.  The punched borders are from a Fiskars punch and the flip flops are from a stamp in my stash.  The sentiment stamp is from PWCO and the image I found on the web.

Here's another view of the card.  I hope she likes it - I know she had told me she searched all the regular card shops and couldn't find anything to fit the bill.  I'm really quite pleased with the finished result.

Well, that's me.  I need to get dinner cooking and then ready for work.  I'm providing dinner but my neighbour is feeding my boys tonight!!  Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping in and for any comments you may leave!

Danielle, I am such a fan of customized cards! I love how you found the swimmer and then did it in the blue and white....absolutely gorgeous. The friend you did it for is going to be over the moon when she sees this. And then the coach she is giving it too! PERFECT DANIELLE!
