Rockin Soccer Mom

Good Morning Everyone Happy Friday!!! I wanted to share a little information to why I made this card today!! Last weekend (Memorial Day Weekend) my daughter had a soccer tournament in Columbus Ohio. The whole team stayed in a hotel and wow what a busy busy weekend!! It was a blast though. For those that don't know my husband coaches both my daughter's soccer teams. There was a mom on our Club Team that prepared so much for the trip to a point I was even like WOW "What a Mom!!" She packed a lunch for each of the girls on our first night there, she knew that we would have to go straight from our game/change in the bathroom and head to the Columbus Stadium to play on the field before a Professional Game...(the girls were SUPER excited and had a blast). She not only packed lunches but she had a laundry bag for the girls to change at the field and put their dirty soccer uniforms in. She took them to the motel and washed every one's uniforms including my husbands coach shirt and socks. When we all arrived to the hotel that evening from the Columbus Crew Game every one's uniforms were neatly in bags labeled with their names on them and at the front desk waiting for each girl to pick them up. She also had a martini there waiting for my husband. OMG is that not like a SUPER organized totally in thought soccer mom!! Well she rocks!!! HAHAHAH!!! She made the weekend that much easier for the girls and my husband!!


My husband asked if I would make a card to thank her for everything she did that weekend. So of course I agreed she TOTALLY deserved at least that!!! :) So here is my card I made for her. I want to share a picture of the team and then the card!!! Hope you enjoy!


(BTW that is not my husband this is last years picture...LOL)


I wanted to show you the picture of the team first so you could see why I chose these colors... I even added my daughter's jersey number on this cutie!!! Hope you like my creation today and thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!! WOOHOO the weekend is here!!!
