My Craft & Youth Football

Hello Everyone:

I think I some of my mojo is gone. I won't say, 'I'm losing it.' because I feel like I know where it is. I tell where it is. I believe my mojo is at the C.C. Jackson Recreation. Apparently, it doesn't follow my son and I home after football practice. It was my 11 year old son's idea to join a football team. He had been asking for the last couple of years, but I would come up with other things he could do aside from playing football. Well, this year I agreed to let him play. I had absolutly nooooooooooo idea practices are held almost everyday during the week. By the time practice is over, it's late and I'm tired. From my understanding, the number of practices will decrease once school begins.

All that leads me to this week's challenge over at Waltzing Mouse Sketch. I tried to create something that was eye catching and unique. Based on the sketch you would have thought this was a walk in the park. Right??? Not. I asked my son what he thought about my card. He said it was nice. Just nice. He also said it wasn't my best. Ask a little person and they will tell you the truth. I thought about starting over again, but my mojo is still at the rec center. So, I've decided to submit what I have. This particular card is intend for a male child. Of course I didn't want to over dress the card with too many embellishments; however, since I have a limited number of Waltzing Mouse Stamps, I opted to use I sentitment I created a few years. It has been recieved rather well, so I use it often for new arrivals.


My interpretation....


Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.

Cute card! I like this layout and may not get mine in in time. Great baby card for someone; esp if it is for a baby boy! I think stamping during the summer is very hard. Good luck with the football season!
