Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Post Card and Grandma's Brag Book



Good morning everyone...I hope you are having a great day!!!! My Grands have been here last week and part of this week for spring breaks.....Cole had Spring break last week and Cody and Mackenzie have it this week. We spent last Saturday at the soccer field for both Cody and Mackenzie's games...I'll show you some pictures at the end of my post.

First I want to tell you about my card....Since I'm the March Guest Designer for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps I get to post on their blog. This is the card that I made for today's post found here!!

Stamps from the Nature Silhouette 2 set and dies from the Birds and Feather's die set were used to create this card. The foliage stamp was stamped on the black card stock with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. This layer was adhered to a piece of Hawaiian Shores card stock and then popped up on the white card base with foam tape. The bird images were stamped with Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay inks and cut out with the coordinating dies......they were then popped up with foam dots. The sentiment is from the Flowers in Bloom set and the twine and button finish it off. 

I also posted another card but you will have to go to their blog to see it....check it out here!!

Now for Grandma's brag book:



Mackenzie is the blonde who is outrunning the taller, longer legged player...Woot!!




Mackenzie is waiting for her team mate to get the ball back to her....they ended up grabbing the ball and Mackenzie ran it down to the end of the field. Mackenzie kicked it to her team mate and she made the goal.

The girls won their game 5-1...whoohoo!!!




Cody (Mackenzie's brother) hasn't played soccer for a few years but he sure is playing well!!

He fought hard for the ball and ended up kicking it to one of his team mates!! Even though he had to fight for the ball, he was still smiling...he is such a cutie!!

They fought hard but lost their game....what a bummer!!!



Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!

Both of the cards are fabulous! Love the black/white contrast on this one and the offset and blue background of the 2nd one. How fun to have the grandkids stay with you.
