Soccer's *World Cup 2014!*

Hi friends!  Yay for Friday!
I have a super simple but festive card to share.
I've been trying to get to this card all week :)
I saw this fun sketch pop up on SCS and my eyes
immediately went towards a flag ♥
That could be because I have FIFA World Cup on my brain!
We are uber fans!
We eagerly await the return of our teams every 4 years. 
 It's an excruciatingly long wait but luckily,
we have the European Cup in just 2 years ♥
Let me just say -  I'm not a sports girl!
I don't follow baseball, I'm not much of a football girl,
and I absolutely do not follow basketball ;)
But for dh (born and raised in Europe)
 and me (grew up there),
Soccer is a BIG DEAL.
In fact, it's HUGE!
As you can see from my Riley festive flag card,
I'm *Team Germany*!
I'm Southern by birth,
but a transplant by heart ♥

For my card, I added each row of cardstock in the coordinating color.
On the inside, I cut them too short to flow horizontally -
vertically, though, it became Belgium, LOL!
I have my Jersey!
My flag!
My pom-poms!
I'm ready!
Yes, I will be a nervous wreck on Sunday.
But I'm sure I won't be the only one at church saying an extra prayer :)
Let's hear it for the *Goals!!*
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!

  1. This I super cute and fun! I don't follow any sports. I hope your team wins!

  2. What a fabulously fun card Kelly. I am not a sports person myself, but I use to be a big boxing fan. :)

  3. Hi Kelly - that is one awesome card - it really made me smile. The game is Monday morning our time, so no hassles about church.... We don't normally follow soccer - DH is a big Rugby fan, as are the majority of kiwi's.

  4. Awwww...this is the perfect card to get some "World Cup Spirit" Kelly!!! So adorable! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  5. The perfect card to honor the World Cup finals!! Delightful work, Kelly!!

  6. Wow, what a fantastic design! Love how you worked in the colors of Germany's flag. Of course, the Riley image is the cutest!

  7. Love how you have incorporated Germany's colours on this fun card.
    Hugs Desíre {Doing Life}

  8. Love how you brought in the flag's colors on your terrific card!

  9. So very cute. I don't really "follow" sports, but I do like to watch some basketball or "real" football. ;) Good luck to Team Germany!

  10. Fun card, AND your team won! It doesn't get better than that.

  11. Now how did I know you would be making a Team Germany card?! :)

    Your card looks terrific and I had to laugh at the Belgian flag-wouldn't have even caught it if you hadn't pointed it out!

  12. Cute! I love the color block on the interior. Fun!!!
