Coaster Magnet!

Well hello there and happy Friday to you! :) I hope you had a good week and that you have a long list of happy, fun weekend plans ahead of you! Our weekend is going to start with dinner in town and then we are heading over to watch a college soccer game or two! We are a big soccer family! My kids have all played for years and some are still playing! My hubby and I have coached and organized a league for many years and are currently team parents for our kid's soccer team! I just love soccer and everything about it and I really enjoy watching the college games! I am looking forward to that! Then on Saturday morning we will head back to town for my kid's soccer game! :) I love those even more than watching the college teams play!

I also have some super exciting news about my standing on her head, back hand spring-ing through the house, always doing a cart wheel or other flippy equivalent kind of thing kiddo!! My youngest daughter is now on Team at gymnastics!! She has been invited to compete! She is so excited and we are so proud of her and excited for her!! This does mean more running for us though...lots more, but she is really quite good and I am very curious as to where this could take her! Practice will jump from 2 x a week to 4 x and meets will take us out of town almost monthly. Life is short though and you should jump in with both feet or in this case cart wheel, round off and back hand spring your way through it! :)

I have a simple project to share with you today! My demo group recently ordered some plain coasters to divide up between us and the nice lady that we ordered them from was very intrigued by the fact that we planned to craft with them rather than place our drinks on them! LOL So, we decided to do what any responsible group of crafters would do and each make her a coaster project! I made her a fridge magnet!
I covered the coaster with Greenhouse Gala DSP and made two of those fun carnations to pretty it up! I used my Big Shot to make some leaves and added a bow and a simple sentiment stamp. I added a super sticky magnet to the back and Viola! Easy Peasy! Here it is:

What do ya think? :) Ok, I am off to tackle my lengthy to do list today! Have a great Friday! I will be back tomorrow with lots to share with you from my last stamping club!

I love making these. I'm so happy for your daughter and what an awesome mom you are. I think about the things my two will soon be getting into and I dread running so much but you are soooo right, we only live once and you know, I think it's awesome that you are giving them every opportunity experience like to the fullest!
