365 Cards Day 182 "Sporty Saturday"
The challenge today at 365 Cards is to create a card with a sports theme.
I used some football stamps that I got with another set on ebay. At the time I said "when will I ever use these?!?", but I really wanted the other set and it was a super-duper deal! So, today, when I checked the challenge and it was a sporty theme, my honey said "there you go! you can use those football stamps now." Needless to say, I was both shocked that he was listening when I said "football stamps, what will I ever do with those?", and inspired to get going on the challenge. Breakfast is for wimps anyway! lol.
The strip of balls (mounted with foam squares for interest) and the helmet are both from the football set that I mentioned above, the sentiment is one of the $1.50 Studio G stamps from Michael's and the paper is from an autumn stack by Me and My Big Ideas that my beautiful mother in law gave me for Christmas last year. I cut the circles with my circle nesties (lovelovelove) and my Cuttlebug and mounted with foam squares too.
I can't believe that I pulled this one together, I am not a sports fan you see! But, I hope you like it and thanks for looking.
