Hockey!

Ugh...what a day!  I can't believe how just this weekend I was running around outside with no coat enjoying the lovely spring weather and today...well wow... I had to bust out my coat, mittens and a hat :( I was so looking forward to spring and was loving that I could finally see the grass---but as I look out my window all I see is blowing and drifting snow!  

But I will not let the weather get me down too much!  For this post I am sharing a card I made for some great friends whom I spent last weekend with-- ahhhh it was so much fun!  We spent time in St. Paul and had a great time at the X!  A good time was had by all...well maybe not everyone but I know I had a blast.  My friends are huge hockey fans so I found this card to be quite fitting for them and even tailored the colors to their team!  I am entering this card into the challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion.  The challenge over there this week was to create a thank you card but to make sure it included a tag!  I really love how this card turned out!  I hope you enjoy it too!!

Recipe
Cricut Cuts: Tag and Tag holder from TBBM
Net, stick and puck from EPD, and thanks--not sure :(
Paper: DSP from my stash and solid from Recollections
Other: Brad Making Memories, Ribbon Bazzill

I like how you put the tag behind the hockey cuts. Great job! Oh, and I was surprised by the winter weather today too! I am sure it will melt soon.
