So yesterday I volunteered (last minute) to make a 'Get Well' card that my daughter needed. As I have mentioned before she is a Denver Roller Doll - recently roster-ed on to the 'Bad Apples" roller derby team. Many people who I have told about this have greet the news with some disdain, that I would let my daughter join these ranks of women who are generally regarded as somewhat 'trashy'??
Well, let me tell you about these so-called 'trashy' women. One of them learned that a very young fan was in hospital diagnosed with a very serious condition - that skater immediately contacted the rest of her team and arranged to go and visit this little girl in hospital, take her a card and a load of roller derby goodies.
I volunteered to make the card for them all to sign. Here is how it turned out.
All of this was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and files from the Silhouette online store. The tree apples are stamped with Peachy Keen faces and mounted on action-wobble springs (sorry no video as I was cutting this one close to the wire.) The sentiment on the sign was made using a single line font and a gel pen in my Chomas Pen Holder - I'm really happy with how it turned out.
The sentiment inside reads 'Get Better Soon!' - with plenty of space left for the team to sign and write messages (the card is actually 12" x 12".)
So at the end of the day I am proud of my daughter for being involved in Roller Derby, and no matter what others may think, I think she has an awesome bunch of teammates.
Thanks for stopping by.
