Hope it's been a good day for you. I'e been lazy today and haven't accomplished much more than a couple loads of laundry and quick run-through on straightening up the house.
Oh well...as Scarlett O'Hara would say....tomorrow is another day!
I did manage to sneak upstairs for an hour or so and get a card finished.
I had planned on making a card for the challenge at 365 Cards and was thinking about a design last night (when I should have been sleeping). Then I heard all the news about the gorgeous,130 year old, oak trees at Toomer's Corner in Auburn being poisoned by some loon!
It is tradition at Auburn University to roll these huge oak trees in toilet paper after a big football win.
As you can see, it's a really big deal!
You can read the story HERE about the disgruntled Alabama football fan who poisoned the trees...
what a jerk!
Anyway...all of that to explain this card for the challenge at 365 cards!
My son, his wife and my grandson live in Auburn and they are all, of course, huge Auburn Fans.
Blake, my cutie-pie grandson will celebrate his 2nd birthday in March. I know this tree thing may not be a big deal to anyone that is not an Auburn football fan, but around here it is major news!
I decided to make an Auburn football themed card for Blake that his mom can keep and maybe put away with the newspaper clippings about all this craziness. I think it will be something he will appreciate one day, when he is much older...especially if the trees don't make it.
Ok...here is the sketch for the challenge at 365 Cards...
And here is my card....
I used the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge from Cricut cutting the football at 2 inches.
I ran the brown portion of the football through my Cuttlebug using the Burlap folder from Sizzix.
A little ink and a few brads...and there you go....WAR EAGLE!
Hope you enjoyed!
Until next time,
