Martial Arts

Imagine my joy with the release of a set with a martial arts theme!! After all, I am a 4th degree Black Belt and certified instructor in taekwondo!! You too can get this set from Clear Dollar Stamps tomorrow as part of their new release. I had to make a card that represents all the belts you earn in taekwondo - white, orange, yellow, camo, green, purple, blue, brown, red and black. Great way to use up the scraps!!
Once again I let the colors of the sports themed DSP inspire me for the rest of the card - navy, gray, rust and sahara sand. This was a sketch challenge layout from a blog I found, just wish I wrote down which one!!! There are more samples of this set to check out, so do so here:
I hope you enjoyed the show the last few days!! Remember, you can order all your favorites starting tomorrow. Now back to bed I go in hopes of getting rid of this sinus headache and sore throat...I hate being sick!!

Way cool! Love the strips of colors for the belts. And yes I knew you would appreciate this set.
The boys did not get to test for their purple belts this Friday, so we will be waiting for next time. They don't seem to upset. I on the other hand really wanted them to test. Oh well... orange for awhile longer. hee hee

Linda...I knew you'd grab this set! And your multi-colored strips on this card, representing all the belt colors is AWESOME! It's easy to see that you love the sport from your passion in making this card...

Your second card is equally A-MAZING! Love the rustic colors that make it manly...love it all!

Hi Linda, this set is just perfect for you! Funny, when I saw the colors on your card I thought I wonder if those are the colors of belts. Well, then I read what you typed and I think you would know for sure what the colors of the belts are! :o) Great idea to do that! Really fun cards! You could use this set even for your Christmas cards for your students. How fun for you!
