Shootin Hoops!

Hi there everyone hope you are having a good week.  Mine is going pretty good and it just 10 days I will be on my way to beautiful Huntington Beach to spend 11 days with my youngest grandsons and their beautiful mother.  I have been busy at the craft table getting projects done and photographed so I am not behind, not to mention getting images ready to take so I can color with the boys! 

This is a very special card made for a very special young lady, my granddaughter Alyssa who is 18 and has played basketball all through high school.  Yep she was on Varsity for the last 2 years and just had her "Senior Night" on the 31st of Jan.  I made frames for all the coaches and the 4 seniors for them to remember their last year.  I altered the #11 on this sweet Basketball Tilda from the Winner Takes All Collection to my granddaughter's actual number of 42.


This is a center stair step card cut with the Silhoutte along with the basketball hoop and team name.  Here is a side view of the card.

 
This is the frame I made for each of the girls,  every girls frame has her jersey with the number and individual photo and then the same team photo. 
 



There is no greater joy than being able to contribute to the memories of those you love most!

My image was colored with the following copics
Skin E50, 51, 93
Hair E41, 42, 44
Shirt Y11, 15, YR23
Shorts C1, 5, 7, 9
Ball YR09, 15, 16

I will be entering this little cutie into the following challenges:

Pile it on - #7 sentiment is the focus
One Crazy Stamper - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - #55 KISS keep it simple and sweet
Challenges for Everybody - #38 anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes

Have a great rest of your week, thanks for stopping by.
Hugs,
