I'm a Soccer Mom!!!! Eeek....

Oh my.... I never thought I'd say those words.  Never.  And so it begins!!  My daughter has decided she will join soccer this Spring... (Uhhh IF it ever comes!).  I knew my son wasn't much of a "ball player" after his few short lived years of baseball.  He had a coach who made him, and ONLY him, do laps.  Though he was only 4, HE noticed and didn't like it.  The coach said he was the slowest on the team.  Well.. he was also the heaviest on the team.  But... as I "calmly" explained to the coach... "Babe Ruth didn't run fast either... h never had to!!".  Sad as well because although he DID run slow and was he heaviest... he was a switch hitter... he could bat left or right handed.  And the coach used that when he needed, but because he ran slow he was singled out.  This mom didn't like that and neither did he.  He refused to play ball ever again after that.  So... never did I suspect my baby girl would want to get involved in any kind of "male dominated" sport.  But hey... equal rights is everywhere and certainly her generation never had to deal with that.  And... now... I'm a soccer mom!!! Ha!!

Of course, Soccer Marci was the perfect stamp from LaLa Land Crafts.  The DP I used was perfect because it had a wonderful "calendar" print which I used as the background.  It comes from the Teresa Collins pack, "Memories".  I colored my image with Copics and cut her out before mounting to the card.  My sweet butterflies and "Play", "Enjoy This"  adhesives are from Heidi Swapp.

My card was my creation for The Outlawz, Twisted Thursday challenge sample a few weeks back.  The twist was to make it a sports theme. I hope you stop by The Outlawz challenge site for a new challenge every day with prizes to be won!!!  Can't beat that!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great Tuesday.  I have a FULL schedule myself today and I don't see much time to create until possibly Wednesday morning.  Until then... *HUGS*

Well congratulations on joining in the soccer craziness. I was a soccer mom and now a soccer grand mom as my son played and now my grand daughter plays. It is as political as baseball but what are you gonna do! Good luck to your daughter.
