Coach Thank You

This year, Owen decided to try out field hockey as the league was looking for boys to play in an all boy team.  It was a great experience for all the new boys to try something new, but it was also very disheartening as the teams we played had mostly been playing together for a very long time.

Today was our wind up game and we decided to have a little wind-up party after the game.  This is the thank you card I came up with for the coach.  I didn`t have any field hockey stamps and I searched the internet for field hockey images – that was a tough one as most of the images were for girls but I finally found this one.

I went over the outline with black liner and coloured the shorts in black.  Cut out my field hockey player and mount it onto a white piece of card stock, then matted it onto a pumpkin pie piece. I added the ball and if you look closely you'll see little lines showing the ball bouncing which I hand-penned in.

This is the first time where I have started with the main focus point - being the field hockey player and working with the colours already on the boy.  I love Jersey Shore DSP and am very grateful to still have some.  The colours were perfect!

The Thank You was from the Cuttlebug Thank You embossing folder that I had embossed in black and then cut out.

Well this is the last of my post for the day.  I hope you have enjoyed them and feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think.  Enjoy the rest of your day!
