This past Sunday was the first day of the soccer season for my son – I love soccer, indoor, outdoor – anywhere anytime. However…Sunday was also the first day of plummeting temperatures and pouring rain. Ah…rain and soccer – can’t have one without the other. My son is playing outdoors which has one game and 2 practises per week, on the school team which has 2 practises and probably 2 games per week, indoor on an adult co-ed team with one game each week and then he does peer tutoring with a group of Grade 9 students every morning who play…you guessed it SOCCER. Even he said "maybe there is such a thing as too much soccer!" – never thought I’d hear him utter those words. Oh yea…he also reffed a soccer game on Saturday.
I love the Season of Joy set from the new Holiday Mini Catalogue and received some wonderful swaps and made some cards using this set. Here’s a few of my favourites….
I love the swirly image from this set because it can be used with other sets throughout the year – this baroque, bohemian look is very "in" right now. I stamped the tree by inking up the tree with markers so I could colour the tree green and the star yellow. I then stamped the tree again on a scrap paper and cut it out and popped it up over the original image. It adds just a little dimension as does the brads I added to the center of the starts.
This is a stunning card with the gold embossed cut out flower (Liane LOVES loves LOVES to cut out stuff – more power to her) popped up for a focal point.
I hope you love this Season of Joy stamp set as much as I do.
