Scholar ~ Friday Sketchers Challenge # 16


Well, what a week-end we had! 10 Soccer matches in 3 days! Our two older boys (7 & 10) both made the soccer finals. Since my husband is the coach of both teams (and director of one of the divisions) we had to be at the matches early to set things up. We had time conflicts and I spent the whole week-end driving from field to field and back again! I think I am more tired than the boys. The teams played so hard and with so much heart! In the end we came away with 4 place and the bronze but to the teams, it was like they had gotten the gold! Needless to say, I did not do any stamping and I have a mountain of laundry that I am slugging through! I did get this card done today for the Friday Sketchers. I kept it very simple because I am going to give it to my eldest on his first day of school. He is going into Grade 5! My middle son will start Grade 2. How time flies! I did switch the sentiment with the image and I hope that is alright. I just like the way it looked this way!

Sometime during this week-end I passed 5000 hits! I am so excited! I thought it would take me forever to get here! I am planning to do a Blog Candy and once I get it all together, I will announce it!
