1.17.2017 FIRST HAT TRICK.....WOO HOO!!!!

My eldest grandson Richard started playing hockey last winter at the age of nine....a late starter....and last year he had to learn the game and sharpen his skating skills.....well last weekend he got his first hat trick!!!! (scored three goals in same hockey game).

 He was over the moon excited (deservedly so)  and this grandma thought it called for a celebration card!

I don't have a lot of hockey themed stamped but made do with what I have......now I have to get on the lookout for some good hockey stamps.....any suggestions?
