Football Notes with Kristal Andrews Stamp Set

Hello Friends!

Thanks for stopping by my blog...what a busy week it has been so far...hehe...but I am glad to hear that a lot of my friends made it through Hurricane Irene...some rebuilding has to be done but I am glad they are safe regardless of the material lost that can always be replaced! Praise God for all of you! My prayer for you is that God helps you rebuild, encourage you when you need it most, and keep you safe under his wings. Amen! :)

Today I entered Crazyabout Cricket challenge...we had to make notes of some sort. I decided to make notes for my teenage son to put in his lunch paperbag that he takes for school (school food is ugh)and he is always excited before he plays the game but sometimes he gets nervous too and that is natural...and since it is his last year it is saying good-bye to all the teams he plays against...kind of scary and sad at the same I thought I send some encouraging notes to him each Friday. I hope he is surprised! :)

Here is my take on them: I use white cardstock and cut it 3x3 so it is perfect size for paper bag and then I stamped with Verve for the stars and swirly, then I stamped with Kristal Andrews stamp set "Positive Thoughts" at Getting Cricky and I have to be honest I use these stamps all the time and they are an absolute favorite and must have and I can't believe how I one time didn't have these! how did I live without them I can't tell you now...hehe...but I am glad I don't now! I highly recommend you get her stamps they are awesome! I also have her button to her website on my sidebar please check them out! :) I stamped using english red for the sentiments then cut to size to fit the note and then taped that to black cardstock and cut that to size also. Then I used some football stickers that I had left over and put them on the note and punched some stars and then popped dot it on there also, and voila! :)

Cute isn't it! :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and if you have not done a challenge at Crazyabout Cricut I highly recommend you do that will help you keep your mojo and do something different that you may have not thought about.

Have a blessed Wednesday my friends! :)
In His Love,
Be Inspired,
