She shoots.... she scoooooores!!!

So, as per my new year's resolution, I made two birthday cards today. I had to, because dear son had two birthday parties to go to. :)  Luckily, I could make the same card for both boys, because they're both avid hockey players, yet they're on different teams and won't know they both have the same cards. Shhhhh! Don't tell their moms!

I used the Silhouette Studio's print and cut feature to trace out a cute hockey player image. Then I used the colours of their respective uniforms to decide cardstock colours. For the background, I googled "skating rink texture" and found an unrestricted image to use. I printed it on white cardstock and matted it.

The inside of the card is an image of a hockey rink layout, watermarked, and a hockey-ish birthday sentiment.

There you go. I know a few hockey moms who would love these. :)


  1. Cute cards Rona! Wonderful that you took the time to personalize each child with their team colours and number!

  2. An accountant and an artist at the same time - you are amazing! I've checked out some of your greeting cards, and they look like bestsellers. Have you tried selling them? I think you can earn a profit out of your creativity.

    1. That's kind of you to say. I haven't pursued this, but would certainly sell them if someone asked.
