Playing Like A Champion!!!!!

Where there's a will there's a way lol!!!

Hey guys welcome  and I'm so happy to say I'm baaaack lol!!!

Oh I miss my DT sistas from all my teams sigh...I feel so bad that couple of my projects didn't get to participate on challenges and in special events but LOTS more will come and I'll get a chance to play this time.

Anyways welcome to the monthly Magnolia-licious Blog Hop, whoot  whoot!
If your coming from my talented friend Janiel than you're right on :)

We have a gorgeous line up with so much eye candy so if you want to play along. You could start at the Magnolia-licious Highlities blog

I hope you like what I created :)

Honestly it just reminded me of my oldest little one...sigh...Oh did she get a beaten this year. You see many of her teammies from her High School soccer team had injuries or there was always something wrong with one of them lol! (poor team) LOL!

so the team was either short or had no bench for subs. My baby started the season on top playing foward then was moved to center Mid and from there GOALIE!!!! Ummm yeah GOALIE!!!!LOL!!

I know she is a good athlete and all but I felt sooo sooo bad for her. The last game she played was...goalie and to tell you the final score was 8-0 :(

BUT let me tell you how BEYOND PROUD we, the fans,the other teams COACHES and other parents were of her. 
I mean she flew, she dove, she slapped(accidentally) but she gave it her all!!!

I know she wanted to  play her last game as her position but she took one for the team as their TWO goalies were out for the season due to injuries sigh.... 

I am very proud of her and what actually cheered her up on her last game. Was all the motivational comments she was getting from the opposite team!!! 

At one point my husband was close to a group of people and they so happen to be talking about Krystalyn (DD) that if It weren't for the goalie  the score would of been crazy high and also how good she was playing!!! 
My husband turned and said that's my daughter with a big smile lol! He explained to them that it was her very first time at goalie and  boy were they in denial of the whole ordeal, lol!


Ok enough of my waffling ... sorry guys just a proud mama right now.

You could say Krystalyn inspired me with my card today even though it's not for her lol! she doesn't take care of my cards so she'll get a tag later on for her duffle bag,shhhh :)

Here are a few pixs of my card and I'm adding a few pixs of Krystalyn's last game too :)

lol! Shoes inspired by DD'S shoes too lol!

You could find all these stamps available now at the Magnolia-licious store.

I used
#544 Goal Background and since I didn't have soccer Edwin which would of gone great! Instead I used #275 Tilda with Lace Jeans from Butterfly Dreams 2011 Collection. 
I know she's not ready but she was invited unexpectedly and couldn't resist :) poor angel is awfully tired.
Now for just a few pictures of her playing goalie

 and that would be her on the floor with the yellow shirt
 her kicking it out
and she's getting ready for a corner kick

I had more pictures but I have them on her cell phone sorry guys lol! Anyways that's enough of my waffling and I held you hostage here more than enough :)

I hope you like my card and perhaps give you some ideas how to use the Winner takes All 2011 Collection.

Ok now it's time to jump on my friend Cabio's blog and get a hold of what this smarty pants did lol!


  1. Your card is so much fun Ruby. The DP is so very cute and perfect for the soccer theme and love your beautiful coloring on the Tilda images :o)

  2. Oh Ruby!!! THis scene is AMAZING! Love love love your coloring! So beatuiful. I can understand why you're proud of your daughter! Thats the good thing about sports- lots of lessons to be learned about life:)
    Thank you for great inspiration.
    Hugs, Elizabeth

  3. Love your card, Ruby! And-great post!!

  4. Oh, what a totally fun card this is! Such a fabulous scene you've created on the soccer field. Love the pics of your daughter playing soccer as well. Your color is amazing as always! Hugs...Barb <><

  5. Ruby, I am dying over here. First and foremost, the card is awesome as usual. I love it but second, no way, no way, no way do you have a daughter that old.. Your profile picture is you right? You look like your are the one in high school. OMG. Are you kidding me? You could not possibly have a child that is not a toddler..Third, I am laughing so hard because both of my daughters decided to play soccer for the very first time. Now remember that one of them is 34 and one is 35 (yes I know, I am REALLY old) but they have never player, did not know rules, etc. My one daughter is ike your daughter..Awesome athlete (always has been) and she too had to play goalie because of injuries and she too was awesome at it buy the compliments of the other teams. I can't believe what you wrote as I would of honestly thought you were talking about my daughter. It is so ironic...... Anyhow, love the card and you too...

  6. Way to go Krystalyn!!! Love, love your card Ruby! Always beautiful coloring!

  7. Fab coloring, of course, but your layout is soooo creative!!! Wonderful job Ruby Dear!!! Congrats to your daughter for her perseverance!
