Girls Love Soccer

It's time again for another fun DT Challenge with the Lizzie Anne Rockstars! This month we were challenged to make a card using using stamps in a way other than the way they were intended to be used. I think Wendy is the master at this (did you see this card she made??) and I want to be like her when I grow up!

I've been making a lot of cards for my sweet daughter, who has been the biggest help I could ever ask for while we get ready for her baby brother. She loves to work on his room, she brings me whatever I need when I'm couch-bound, and she is so patient when I can't do all of the playing she wants. One of the things she loves to do that I just can't these days is play soccer - so DH does it with her. But I miss running around! When the Singles of the Month came out his month I knew instantly that I needed Soccer Boy, and I was totally going to turn him into a girl!

I used the head off of the Lifeguard Girl, cut it off (gasp!), and adhered it to the Soccer Boy's body. I've done this before, way back when we didn't have a Supergirl stamp. I love that the Little People are basically the same size, so you can mix and match them the way you want!

No pink for this soccer girl - this week her favs are green and blue. I'm sure that will change by Monday! Be sure to go check out what all of the other Rockstars have done -- you'll love the creative way they used Lizzie Anne stamps! Check the Lizzie Anne blog, or the links on the right of my blog!

Perfect! And so seamlessly done, I couldn't even tell it wasn't meant to be that way.
