Slam Dunk Thank You

Slam Dunk Thank You

Inside: Thank You!

Last month at work we were raising money for Big Brothers Big Sister. The local Police Dept (SPD) and the local Sheriff Dept (GCSD) play a basketball game every year where all the money raised goes to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Well my boss started talk crud that he could out sell me on tickets/donations to Big Brother Big Sister. So I told him it was on like Donkey Kong!! I sent an email to my family and friends and in less than 2 weeks they raised $550.00!!! Yay for family and friends!! As my SIL would say “we crushed him!” as my boss only raised $240.00. But we accomplished the main goal and that was we beat the Sheriff’s dept in raising the most money! So to thank my family and friends I made 19 of these cards to send out!

I did black and blue to represent that the local Police Dept (SPD) won!! The image is a free clip art I found on the internet. I used sketch #4 of the April Card Sketch Challenge.

No Perfect Parents

This card is made for an angel swap I’m in. This is a different type of swap. Basically everyone puts in a name of someone that could use happy/encouragement mail in their mailbox. Then you are randomly given a name to send a card to.
The person requested the card to go to a man to offer him support of parenthood and let him know he rocks as a father. I asked a couple follow up questions and found out he plays basketball with his son every weekend.
So I started praying to find out what kind of card God wanted him to get. I looked at quotes and found 2 that I felt led to use. I was going to make two different cards but ended up with the holy spirit prompting me to use the 2nd one inside:
“There will be so many times
you feel like you’ve failed.
But in the eyes, heart, and mind
of your child you ARE Super Dad.
You are their world.
And you are doing a fabulous job.”
– Stephanie Precourt

A little background on the inside quote. The original quote says Mom. But I really felt it is what I needed to send. So I wrote Stephanie and asked her if it had every been changed and would she mind if I changed Mom to Dad. She said she doesn’t think it has been changed but can totally see how it pertains to both parents so she gave me permission to change it!

I used MOJO Monday #420 sketch for my inspiration.

I had an order for a birthday card for a 60ish lady that loves to play golf. She also like primary/bold colors. While searching for images and inspiration I saw a card that used the Wrap it Up cricut cartridge. So I went looking through my cartridges and I had it!! And it has this golf club set in it!! It had swirls on the top layer so I left that off. I used MOJO Bella Sketch #14 for my inspiration…I know the circle with the #14 could be part of the sketch but doesn’t have to be but I liked it as it was a perfect spot for the golf ball!
