I know you are probably sick of me posting about the Jordan's cheerleading by now.......I just can't help myself!!! I promise this to be the last post about it......for awhile.
The other moms asked if I could make a thank you card for the man who organized this entire basketball/cheerleading/pizza party/game this past Saturday. He is a man from a local parish who, out of the kindness of his heart donates his time and money to our kids. So I figured it was the least I could do.
When I got home, though, I was struggling with what the heck I would stamp. I don't own any cheerleading stamps. (who does?!) But, I did have this Little Dancer set by Crafty Secrets. I had one of those "AH HA" moments! I thought, yea, I could make little tiny pom poms, and a skirt to match!!! (I know.......seek help......) So I started with some white tatting string and colored it red with my Copics. Then I folded it over itself many many times until it was full enough to look like a pom pom. I tied it at the end and took my scissors to cut the many loops I had created by folding it over. I did the same with the white, until I had itty bitty pom poms. I colored her in with Copics and had the darnedest time making a skirt for her. (I guess cuz her legs are really more in a dancing position.....) I know the skirt is a wee bit long for a cheerleader, but it was the best I could do. I used my oval Nestibility for her. I took my paper piercer and pierced holes in both her hands. I pushed the "handle" of the pom pom through the hole. I used pop dots while layering to allow for those "handles" in the back. The paper I used was by Crafty Secrets too and some white SU! The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink. (Which I love because it fit so nicely on that jewelry tag!)
Hopefully that all made sense......it is still early here.......
Off to get ready for work. Thanks so much for taking your time out to visit me. Have a great Monday!!!!
