CAS30 Best Wishes

Hello! Now that the lazy days of summer are over, things are starting to pick up around here! I signed my daughter up for soccer for the first time. My husband is so excited about her playing, because he was a big soccer player growing up. He even got a little surprise today when they told me they were in need of coaches for the under 5 y.o. group (which my daughter will be in) so I called him up and asked if he would be interested. He said sure! Now we'll have gymnastics twice a week and soccer twice a week. I also took my 21 month old to his first Kindermusik class today : ) He's been a little bored since his brother and sister started school, so I thought that would be something fun we could do together. He had a blast! I've always looked forward to these days when the kids would start getting involved in sports and activities. I love the idea of being a soccer mom lol! Now onto my card:

Today's CAS Challenge was to make-over one of our previous cards. We could simplify one of our past cards, or just redo a CAS card, etc. I chose to make-over this card. I pretty much took away most of the layers, the dp, and the stitching. I flipped the sketch, kept it on a white base, added the border and the sentiment. I like it because I always felt the other card was too busy. I hope you like it too, and thank you so much for stopping by today!

I really like it redone on the white base. It makes the gorgeous red butterflies and flowers pop out that much more!

I love having kids in sports, too. Makes things busy, but so much fun!
