Thankful Thursday - Man/Boy Theme

It is another Thankful Thursday Design Team Day at Crazy About Cricut!  Last week we only had a handful of players.  I hope more of you will play along this week!  Thankful Thursdays are about spending fun, crafty time with your loved ones but anyone/everyone can join in this challenge.  You do not have to have kids.  It just needs to fit the challenge, and will hopefully help you spend time with family/loved ones! The current sponsor for Thankful Thursdays is Post-It and the prize packs have been awesome!  The new theme is Man/Boy, use the word man/boy, or use a man/boy cut in your project!  As usual, we had the perfect project we needed to complete that fell into the Man/Boy category!  Here is our project!

Some of you may know that I am the head coach and coordinator for my local U6 AYSO.  Every week after our games I have at least one kid ask "DID WE WIN?" and the answer is always "Yes" because in U6 we do not keep score and everyone wins!  Well, the next question is always "Do we get Ice Cream?" and as much as I would love to go for Ice Cream every week, I don't think my wallet would like 30 Ice Creams a week!  We decided for the end of the season, we would make each kid and assistant coach a card and add a coupon for a Free Ice Cream!

These are the coaches cards and they will each get one in their team's color!

I am in love with the Cricut Decals cart on the E2!

Again, each of the kiddos cards are color coordinated for their team!

The ball comes from the Life is a Party Cart! 

I only had one assistant this week.  Middle E didn't want to help because she can't play soccer!  She is my Miss Attitude!  Baby E is no longer allowed in my craft area due to her new obsession with throwing everything in the trash!  My car keys have been MIA for over a month now and I'm pretty sure some landfill critter may steal my van one of these days!

At one point, my assistant got bored and decided to make her own card!  This is her hula girl card!

Thank you for entering my blog candy. Oh dear...your 5yo sorts M&Ms to be organized…there is a mini June Houck out there with similar OCD tendencies; she sounds perfect ;) I am actually very shy when I first meet people IRL, but once I get to know them, I am a chatty Cathy. Thanks for sharing, Amber!
