Card- You're too kind (again)

Well hello! I am typing this while we are enjoying a relaxing night after a LOOONG & HOT day! Chace had a football game at 11:00 am so we had to be there at 10:30 am. It's about 40 min. away from our house, so it is to far to drive back home in between games! Then he had a game at 1:00 pm. Then my daughter cheered at a game at 2:00 pm and at 5:00 pm! Chace's team didn't do very well! This is Chace's first year to play football, he is one of the littlest, but one of the fastest (Thank Goodness!) I don't want him hurt! :) Autumn has been cheering for many, many years! Next year she will be able to try out for cheerleader in school! (One of the only reasons, she doesn't want to be homeschooled!) Me and a couple of other ladies were asked to take pictures of the games this year for the end of the year video they put together. My kids get tired of me taking pictures of them, so I guess I will just take pictures of other kids too! And I guess I will have to figure this camera out now! :) There was alot of walking and waiting going on today! I got sooo sunburn, I look like a lobster! Autumn got to hot during the her first game, so she got cooled off afterward, then she got hot again during the second game, so the cheer coach let them leave a little early. Thank goodness they did because Autumn got sick in the car and threw up (in a bag)! She did start feeling better after coming home and laying under the ceiling fan for awhile, then taking a cool bath! I'm glad they won't have games like that again! This was like their "Play Day", so it's lots of games! Anyway, school starts on Monday, so I hope to get some crafting done and not feel guilt about doing it when the kids are here! I hope to try and start posting everyday, even if I have to start scheduling them. It's just hard sometimes with the kids at home and you feel like your taking time away from being with them!
So here is a card I made out of some scraps on my craft table. It is very simple, but I like it! Here is the card and I wanted to share a pic. of Chace in his little uniform and Autumn in her outfit. They didn't wear their uniforms today, just their shirt and short outfit! (Sorry for the dark photo!)

Stamp-PTI-mega mixed messages, Stampabilities (I think)-Polka Dot Background, Inkadinkado, Gem Stones Insects
