Quarterback...or Kicker??

My youngest child cannot decide whether to try out for quarterback or for kicker on his middle school touch football team.  (It sounds like he would prefer not to tackle nor be tackled on a regular basis!?)  I made a quarterback card here and I thought I better have a kicker card ready.

Just Kick It

I really had no idea what the little "peg" stamps were in the Touchdown set by The Alley Way Stamps. So I used the pair of short ones for grass and the long one for a kicking tee.

I started out with school colors on this card but the red and blue with the green grass was not working.  So I browsed current challenges and found CAS-ual Fridays...black, white plus one.  I love the way it worked out!

Then I originally had the sentiment along the grass but the card seemed bottom heavy - so back to browsing challenges and found this week's at The Paper Players...CAS plus pennants.  Yeah!!

You're such a good mom! Your card is so adorable and while it looks so CAS, thank you for sharing that it was not all that simple, yet it was definitely worth evaluating and reevaluating 'cause it turned out perfectly! Bonus that it stands out in all the challenges!
