Thursday Night and Football
Hello everyone! How has your week been? I don't know about you, but the short weeks at work always seem to be the busiest and for some reason the busier I am at work, the less time I have to play in my room...what's up with that?!? But the best part about today is the beginning of the football season!! woo hoo!! Now don't get me wrong, I don't know much about football at all, just that it signals the beginning of fall for me, so I'm REALLY excited! Now if only the weather would cooperate! It's only 101 outside right now, but that's how it is in September around here.
So, I finished the card I made to support Team 1 from CTO and thought I better get it posted. If you haven't had to chance to check out this week's challenge, it's to make something for Grandparents Day. I used Bazzil cardstock for the card base and the pattern papers are from Hot Off the Press' Heritage pack. They really do have some beautiful papers. The black mat and sentiment mat are Recollection and I inked the cream paper with some gray chalk ink. The sentiment stamp is from a Scrappy Moms stamp set and the ribbon was actually tied to the stamps when I opened the package. I thought it went perfectly. I found these cute swirl glitter brads the last time I was at Michael's and thought they made the perfect accent. I don't know about your Michael's, but the one here in Redding has been adding all kinds of new brads and embellishments. Just so fun to see all the new stuff every week! (like I need an excuse to cruise by there!! lol)
Oh, and before I forget....tomorrow is the Teddy Bear Hop and I'd love it if you hopped by! Have a great evening!!
