Game ON!


Did you have a great Super Bowl Sunday?  Did your team win or did you get to just spend time stamping instead.?  I really thought I'd stamp, but I ended up watching most of the game this year.  I'm starting to like football.  My card today is one that was showcased during the PWCO stamp release.  I just know that I am going to use this little football player A LOT.  My son LOVES football.  So I made this for him for his birthday.  I'm WAY ahead of schedule.  This is a side step card that was a featured technique on Splitcoast a few weeks back.  They are super easy to make.  I also got that sentiment from a free digi sponsored by Papertrey designer BETH last week.  

This little guys is supposed to resemble a Notre Dame football player.  When my son was home sick a few weeks ago we watch "Rudy" 3 times.  He decided that he wants to play football for the IRISH someday just like Rudy.  We almost have his IRISH room finished.  Just a few more pictures to hang.

I have one other project using Zach the Football Player.

 This is a Milk Carton that I was going to put M&M's in for the Super Bowl game.  However, I didn't get a chance.  So it may become my little guy's Valentine.  These milk cartons are pretty easy to make.  I used some twill to resemble the white markings on a football, as well as, some football texture paper by The Paper Studio.
Have a great Monday!
