3 Basketball Thank You Cards

Hello Friends!  Welcome back to my little blog.  I have 3 fun cards to share with you that were inspired by the great Inspirational Challenge found over at SCS - Splitcoaststampers, found HERE.

The rich colors of this glass dome and the gorgeous lattice-like ornamental design reminded me of a Basketball going into a basket hoop.... yeap!  But, maybe it's only because we need 3 quick Basketball thank you cards for three separate Coaches.... (LOL).   
The fun hoop Basket was created by using the Lattice Frame Die from Cheery Lynn Designs. It was die cut then folded in half, trimmed the corners and dry embossed it to give it more texture.  Only stamp used here was the sentiment from CTMH. The basketball was actually cut out of a $1 pack of party invitation cards.... (a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do in a pinch)...LOL!

 Second, is another fun card with a take using the Lattice Die, Stampin' Up! Punch, Cuttlebug EF, Silver Pearls and some Sports Letter Stickers....

 This third card could be dedicated to the Chicago BULLS... 
(My all-time fave Basketball Team)...heheh
 This one came together with mostly using Dimensional Sports Stickers from Recollections, a SU Punch, A Corner Punch, Spellbinders Die for the Basketballs and Silver Pearls.  All three Basketball cards were created with the Latice Frame Die from Cheery Lynn Designs and all have Dry Embossed BG, and all include basket cut parts from a $1 Basketball Party Invitation Card Pack.  

Easy, fast and fun results! Don't-ya-think-so?
Thanks For Stopping By. I love hearing from you!  
Happy Creating!
America
