Soccer Mom + a Winner!

Eeek!  First of all, I think I missed the memo about posting the winner for the WCMD challenge.  I think Angela posted them all on the Unity Website... but just in case - here is the winner for my challenge (Going Postal - Making a Card + Matching Envelope):

espbfdl - (Savannah O'Gwynn) with this card:

Congratulations, Savannah!  :)

Both of my boys played soccer this year & last Sunday marked the end of the season.  (Thank you, God!)  ;)  As fun as it is to watch your kids play sports, it does take up a lot of time & we're really looking forward to a little more FREE time this fall & winter.

About 45 minutes before it was time to leave for the final game, I realized that I hadn't made the soccer coach's 'thank you' gift that I had intended to whip up earlier in the week.  So... in a mad dash, I grabbed all of the Crate Paper School Spirit goodies that I had and made a card & gift lickety split!  I was actually pretty excited because usually it takes me hours to make anything.. and this turned out just how I wanted it to in a fraction of the time.  Like I told my friend... It's GOOD to have a room full of craft supplies for last minute ideas like this!  I really love everything Crate Paper released this season & the coordinating line made it SO easy to work with.

Xyron - soccer card

For the card, I cut out a banner from the 6x6 paper pad and popped it up a bit.  The rest of the card was made with stickers, rub-ons & chipboard.  The ribbon is Terracotta Tile by PTI. I used one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets - Harold's ABC's - to spell out "COACH".  (This set is SO handy!)

Xyron - soccer set

Xyron - candy jar

I found these cute little jars last month from Hobby Lobby.  They were on sale for 50 cents each.  Score!  I just cut a circle from paper & topped it with another Chipboard piece from the CP set.  I ran a strip of ribbon through my Xyron to apply adhesive & wrapped it around the rim of the lid.  If you've never used a Xyron... it's a really handy machine!  (and inexpensive!)  There's a Product Review going on right now for the Xyron on SCS right now.  You can check it out HERE.  I use mine all the time!  It's great to use with paper piecing too!  Let me know if you have any questions about it.  I'd be happy to share!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
