Rainy Days and Mondays

Happy Monday everyone. We had another rainy weekend. I'm not complaining; I love it! I know so many people who are tired of this weather though. Our temperatures cooled down too and I'm enjoying that tremendously as well.
I didn't do hardly any stamping this weekend. I worked on the wallpaper border in my craft room and I was lazy a lot of the time!
So, that being said I don't have a card showing you today's image which is called Fourth Of Mewly. But I DO have a card using their new image #1! Did you really think I'd leave you high and dry on a Monday morning? LOL! Here's my card

(click to enlarge)

I don't know any little girls who play soccer, but I thought this image was so cute I just felt like coloring it. If any of you would like to have this card, just ask and first person who wants it can have it. I suppose it's unlikely the colors would be what someone needed, but it's worth a shot.

Anyway, I colored it with copic markers and chalked the sky and ground and then stamped grass springs. I love adding the grass over the chalk. I embossed the blue cardstock layer with a cuttlebug folder and used some rick rack between that and the designer paper. The designer paper is some new I bought at Michael's called Tranquil. I really like it because some of the paper is patterned, and some of it is textured.
I printed the words in a font called Freestyle Script and then punched it out and sponged with black.
I added the stars because it looked like it needed something there.
I hope you all had a great weekend and that you have a great Monday! Thanks for looking!

Precious card! You don't see too many cards for coaches, so this would be perfect for the thankful player. I wish I knew of one.

I love your coloring, of course, but I especially love your stamping over the chalk for the grass! How clever!

I am one of those that's tired of the rain! We are literally flooding...6" in 2 days last week! We have a drainage problem anyway, so this is definitely trouble...but my weeds are loving it! :)

I love that you're making some "older girl" cards...don't know any soccer players, only softball.

I suggest that when you get your wall paper border down, you don't put any more up. LOL I said the last time I had to take down wall paper....NEVER AGAIN!!!!!

This little girl is really really cute and your card is cute as always. I don't mind the rain or cooler weather. Then I don't have to feel guilty about not going outside. Seems like I've said that here before. Hmmmm.
