For Quintin...Football Is Life!


Hello Friends!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! We are finally getting some much needed rain!

Today's card was made for my grandson, Quintin. He just played starting quarterback for the first time (as a junior) on the varsity team! He played the entire game and they won!! 10-0!! We are so proud of him! The entire team was so supportive and they all rallied as a great team!

Quintin is not just a good football player but a wonderful young man. He works hard at school, helps his single mom with a much younger sister and two foster siblings, smiles for everyone and, best of all, he is not ashamed of his relationship with God! At sixteen, he is quite the fellow!! OK, I'm through bragging now! I just can't help it when it comes to my grandchildren!!

I started with a base card of SU Brilliant Blue. I layered white cardstock next with a punched and faux stitched border. A layer of stashed patterned paper was next. The football player was made with a clipart image. The sentiment was cut with the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge. A simple card, but I thought I should let my grandson know I was proud of him!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! It is always a joy to hear from you! Hope you will come again! Have a wonderful week and I send you all...

Blessings,
Vicki
