coaches gifts Aquatic Diamonds

It's soccer season all year long for us. My daughter has become an amazing player and I love her coaches and all the new families we get to meet. We have two wonderful young women coaches who volunteer their time to coach our girls. We love them so much. We won our division and did great in our region. As all things come to and end as they must we celebrated the girls and coaches. Here are the cards I created for our team. 

The gift card pocket. 

This card was for a sister of a player who refereed all our required games and she is only 16. What a wonderful commitment she made for us. She was thanked too with a gift card. 

The team name is Aquatic Diamonds so I added the bling accent around the frames. 

Gotta love glitter paper. These flowers are made from the Stampin Up poinsettia punch. 

winter formal corsage and boutonnière

My son invited his girlfriend to the winter formal by giving her cookies on this plate. He spent the morning helping his sister and I paint and glaze this ceramic plate.  The theme was 007 black, white and red colors. Unfortunately they broke up but they were able to stay friends and still attend the dance. 
I wasn't sure if he was still going to go, so when she finally said yes I made the courage and boutiner the same day as the dance. I have some experience with real flowers from a job I had 20 plus years ago so I felt confident I could come up with something. 

My son kept his. 
They looked so cute and I'm so glad they stayed friends. They are too young to be serious anyway.

Christmas Wrapping

My son gave a gift to his crush this year so I went all out with the wrapping. It was really fun. I had time and resources to coordinate the colors. 

November Stamp Club

It's our Christmas card time in Stamp Club. We all had free reign to do what we wanted. I started off with a tag and was having a vintage vibe. 

This was our make and take from Terri. 

This was the hostesses make and take. 

My assistant was helping me today. She gave me her approval on my photographs of this months Stamp Club. She pretends like she doesn't care but she so does. 

retirement cards

Two of my favorite people have retired from our job. They needed a big send off and several of us got together to give them a gift and these were the cards I made. I wanted them big enough so everyone could sign as little or as much as they wanted. 

I made tiny gift card pockets for both cards. 


I wanted to share a little of our christmas with you all.  It was a wonderful time for us. I hope and pray your holiday season was filled with love and joy. Happy New Year to you all  2016 is going to be the best year ever!
