The Last Minute Lacrosse Card

So my teen asks me this morning to make a team card for her lacrosse coach, to give at her end-of-season party tonight. I say, "What party?"

The netting in the sticks is made from a lace tablecloth. Plus I cheated, and used a metal storebought Thank You embellishment, to save time.

Tennis Anyone?

Wire mesh is used for the racquet cut-out, so the inside has to be as finished as the cover. Of course I had to buy a ton to get my 2" scrap, so I guess other wire mesh designs will soon be showing up here!

Dad's Saturday Shirt

The best part about the weekend (according to my husband) is no shirt and tie. So out comes the "Best Dad Ever" t-shirt for this Father's Day themed card.

Wedding Dance

Sometimes 'less is more', and in this case it certainly was true. The design seemed to work better without embellishments. My only major change was to put the groom in silhouette so that there was enough contrast between the bride and groom.
