Paper Smooch Hugs and Kisses

Paper Smooches

The Paper Smooches Sparks blog has a sketch this week so I thought I would play along.  The vertical sketch on the right was my sketch of choice and though it ended up being covered up for the most part, it is there - honest LOL!  Also playing along with Delightfut Images' challenge of adding a tag to your card.

In my never-ending quest to decrease my "to be used later" pile, I pulled out a tag and heart die cut to add to the sketch.  Kisses became my focal sentiment and then I added the hugs as the two just go together :)   They are both from the We Connect set by Paper Smooches which is such a fun set!  There are many wonderful words which you can use individually or mix and match and piece together to form longer sentiments. 

Hoping the soccer fields are open for practice today as the boys need to focus after a month off as they are entering Cup play season.  The grouping they are in is very evenly matched - any team could win, which makes for some great games.  Just comes down to who wants it more.  Five weekend games and if they win this division they move on. If not, they can hang up their cleats until next year.  So...we need to get a practice in to fire them all up :)   Fingers crossed...!
