I cannot honestly say that my son's future is in football. He has played flag football for two seasons, but I think that is as far as his interest in playing goes. He has a few friends that play full pads, make weight football, but it is a huge commitment for 9 year olds to make (and their families!).
He does, however, have a deep love for the game, so it could all change. If he were to ever play, here is a card I could give him for encouragement or as an "atta boy." It is simple and not at all frou-frou; just right for boys.
The inspiration for this card came from Ms. Julie, herself (this card). She is just a wonder - full of energy, enthusiasm, fun - kind of like a cheerleader for all of us on the CT for A Muse. The fact that she shares so much of her genius with the stamping world proves that she is generous, too. I hope she knows how much she is appreciated!
Don't forget to look for more ideas for this image on the A Muse News blog (a few more creations by me are on there today), as well as other members of the A Muse CT.
