I did this card using Laura's Sketch 47 at 2 Sketches 4 U, and it is based on the Doilies & Lace challenge at the Moxie Fab blog as well.
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Gina K Designs (Lovely Labels set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: dusty plum, turquoise)
Ribbon: Renaissance By Design
Twine: Darice Inc.
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Doily/Pins/Button: craft supply
Instructions: Fold pink cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners. Adhere a strip of pink dotted paper to a doily paper block, and round the bottom corners. Adhere the entire block to the front of the card. Fold a doily in half, and adhere to the top. Add ribbon to the middle of the card, and tie a button around the bow using twine. Stamp the label and sentiment to white cardstock, and cut out. Accent with pearls, and adhere to the front using foam dots. Add the pins to the bottom of the ribbon, and accent the top with a pink pearl strip.
I have found a new show that I like. And of course, it is on NBC. Which means I will most likely regret getting into the show, because the network is notorious for quickly cancelling a show if it doesn't gain the market share they want right away. Let's hope that isn't the case this time around. This is the cast of the show:
The show is called "Parenthood" and I am digging it. It can be sad and a bummer at times, but they do a really good job of making you laugh pretty quickly after those parts. And isn't life kind-of like that anyways? We go through a series of heartaches, whether they be little or small, with a bunch of laughter and good times in between? I hope the network gives this show a chance, because it is really enjoyable.
So, they FINALLY updated their website...and now I want to share something pretty darn special with you. My talented little brother has made the decision to play football and sign as a Carroll College Fighting Saint!!
We are SO SO proud of him!! I know it was a really hard decision to walk away from the Griz, as he was offered a preferred walk-on spot with them...but we all believe that he absolutely made the correct decision! He was offered a very nice scholarship from the school, and we believe that he will get the chance to be a star at Carroll. I haven't met any of them yet, but my parents have nothing but awesome things to say about the coaching staff. Carroll College is a private college located in Helena, MT with a Catholic affiliation. He is going to get such an amazing education there, and I love that it is smaller in size! From an education standpoint, I think that detail will really help him flourish. Anyways...here is a link to the article on the website that has info on Casey listed in it.
Want to know a random but cool thing about this? One of the other kids listed in that article, Tyler Jacobsen, was friends with Casey when they were young. He lived across the street from some really good friends of ours, and they played all the time until Casey moved away. He wrote on Casey's facebook page the other day that he never thought he would see Casey again, and now they are going to be teammates. It is such a small world, isn't it!
When I think of Carroll College, I think of this amazing photo that graced the cover of Sports Illustrated. For one it is just an awesome photo that is full of pure emotion. But, it is also so cool that SI chose to run a photo of such a small college on the cover. Carroll has an amazing football legacy, and this just proves it.
So, needless to say...we are all filled to the brim with pride for Casey and this opportunity!! He should get 4 more full years of playing football, and we are so excited to watch him play again!! They haven't decided what position he will be playing yet or if they are going to red shirt him, so I will keep you updated on that! My parents bought me my first Fighting Saints shirt the other day, and I have been wearing it proudly! I will have to get a photo of all of us in our Carroll gear soon...hopefully at Easter. I will share it when I get it!
Well, I am going to get going for now. Hope your Saturday is a great one! ♥
