I had reason to need a thank you card this week, and going by the assumption that my eldest daughter's netball team's umpire doesn't read my blog (or likely even know my last name!) I feel safe to share it here before we give it to her on the weekend.
My girls are playing their last game of netball for the season this coming Saturday. I was always a netballer at school (and again recently), but this is the first season my girls have played, as they went down the dancing/acrobatics route instead. They've loved playing, once they figured out which positions were allowed in which thirds and managed to master the pivot. If there's one thing that is really evident to me about junior sport, having witnessed it first hand for the past several months, it's that much is owed to the small group of very committed people who show up rain or shine (or rain, or thunderous storminess or rain - it was a wet season, can you tell?) every weekend and do what needs to be done, whether that's to grab a whistle and run the sidelines, serve post match chips in the canteen or teach the skills of the game.
So as well as being for our umpire, this thanks is also for all of those who spend time in the sometimes wet and muddy but rewarding trenches of junior sport - I salute you.
I have loved the Endless Thanks stamp set since I first saw it in the previous Annual Catalogue, and like many of the sets in my collection, it hasn't seen nearly as much ink as I would like it to have. Neither has the Writing Notes stamp in the background #virgininking but I digress...
A quick Google search presented me with myriad options for use, but I couldn't go past this one and CASEd it almost to the letter. Often, I will use a card idea that I see as a starting point and end up somewhere else altogether, but this one was perfect in its perfection, so I hardly altered a detail.
When looking up the details of who to credit for its creation, I discovered that it was pinned to one of Stampin' Up!'s own squillions of Pinterest boards, where they share card ideas from their own concept artists, as well as from blogs of demonstrators from around the world. If you're ever in need of inspiration of the stampin' variety, or just like to look at pretty things, I would highly recommend a visit.
