Hello, Friend!

Hi, Friends!
TGIF!  Hope all is well your way and that you have an awesome weekend!  I just thought I'd share with you some cards.  The above card is a card I received from my friend, Greta recently!  She makes the most beautiful cards with lots of texture and gorgeous pretty!  Thank you again, Greta!
The next card is a card that I'm sending out to my great niece, Sophia.  Her birthday is next week and she is on the soccer team.  She has been playing soccer for quite awhile now.  She is quite the soccer girl!  And, here is her card...
The soccer stamp used on the card is from SU.  The sentiment stamp is from Paper Sweeties.  I colored the background with copics to look like grass.  I hope she gets a "kick" outta this card!:-)
I sent this card to Debbie the owner of Paper Sweeties for her birthday last month.  She certainly makes life sweet with all her wonderful products!  I LOVE them all because they are so sweet and uplifting! 
I used Abigail and coordinating die to cut her out Sweet Cuts-Abigail.  Her outfit and balloon are from the stamp set Wishing You.  The leaves are from the set Bee Happy and die cut with coordinating dies Sweet Cuts-Bee Happy.  The fence and flowers were made using the die cuts Sweet Cuts-Home Tweet Home.  The banner is from Sweet Cuts-Be Happy.  Twine is (cookie dough).  And, the sentiment is from the set Cupcakes & Sprinkles.
Ok, well that's all for now, friends!  I hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Take care!
