Simply Sports

Yesterday a big box of goodies arrived, and I mean BIG!!! My first order from the new catalogue arrived and it included all of the Share product!!! You could say I have A LOT of cutting ahead of me, but I don't mind, it will be fun checking out all of the new product! I hope to have the shares cut and complete by the end of the week!

Included in my box was a few items for myself that I just couldn't resist ordering. My absolute "must have" item of the new catalogue was the Simply Sports Bundle. I love how iconic and versatile the stamp set is, and I have been wanting the Bitty Banner framelits, forever!
So, of course, I couldn't resist playing in my craft room last night and here is what I created! A cute little soccer, birthday card! I thought a soccer card was appropriate with the world cup going on. I don't follow sports, but my Facebook family is great for letting you know when something big is going on!

My card was created with the Circle Card Thinlit. I must admit, sometimes I struggle with designing these cards, but I'm pretty happy with this one! On the left hand side, I used my Hexagon punch to create the idea of a soccer ball and on the right I created the soccer field.

The ball and the greeting are both from the stamp set and the stars were punched out with a new punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack!

When the card opens, the player is there making a goal! Happy Birthday!! Fun! Right!?!

While creating my card, I asked my hubby what colour he thought of when I said score...

"I dunno, I don't..."

okay... besides green, black and white, what colour do you think of when I say soccer? I'm trying to figure out accent colours...

"Umm... light green... dark black? "

Yeah... Thanks! Gotta love husbands sometimes!

Well I decided orange... I may not follow sports but I am dutch! ;)

Thanks for stopping in and Happy Creating!


  1. This is so cute! I was excited to see this stamp set too, but I wasn't sure how I'd use it. LOVE what you've done here!

  2. Shouldn't something be said about point spreads? By and by, the information you as of now have will support you. soccer predictor
