Way to Go Allison!

My dear friend, Katie, texted me Friday night to let me know her daughter, Allison, made the 7th grade cheer squad.  I am so excited for both Allison and Katie.  Allison is an incredible dancer and cheerleader.  This is the first year there are tryouts for cheerleading!  Katie and I are looking forward to sitting on the sidelines together in the fall...watching Allison cheer and Ryan play football.

Here's a fun card for Allison in our school colors/theme...go Loveland Tigers!  Thanks to Stampin' 411 for the sketch inspiration!

I liked the sketch so much I also did a second card.  I took Jennifer McGuire's class over the weekend (so much fun...take her classes if you ever get the chance!) so I wanted to try some distressing inks out on this card and had some fun new October Afternoon paper to try!  I also had to ink up my new SU stamps!
Too tired to type the ingredients out tonight :)

  3. I took a class with Jennifer McGuire back in 2005 at CKY Boston. She is an amazing person!!!

    I LOVE this card. It would work equally as well for a Cub Scout card (the Tigers use the same colors)!!!!

  4. I love both cards! The first one is made in my son's favorite color (you should see his room lol!! but only with sunglasses on!!), so I think that makes me love it even more...but the second one is SO pretty too! Nice job on both!!
