Scene It Sunday #196 Featuring Soccer Star from The Paper Shelter

Good morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. This week I am sharing a card I made for one of my TAs for her children to give to their sports coach. She absolutely loved it and I hope the coach does too! 

For this card I used the adorable Soccer Star from The Paper Shelter and added a little scene behind him with some grass and a football net. The sentiments came from an old Papertrey Ink stamp set and were perfect for this card!

Scene It Sunday #195 Featuring Girl & Boy Pencils Background from Amanda Jayne Designs

Good morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. I think I can get away with this images being classed as scenes anyway! My work colleague asked for some cards to be made for her children to give to their teachers as they are finishing their primary school years this year and as she has twins, a boy and a girl, I thought these images were perfect and she loved them! I kept the cards fairly simple so that the images took centre stage! 

Here is the girl one...


And the boy one...


And together... Aren't they just so cute and perfect for thank you cards for a teacher!
