HIMCR Challenge #122 - Fall Colors!

Challenge #122 - Fall Colors!
Up For Grabs:
$5 Gift Certificate - Digital Images
My Project:
...And We Are Living In A Digital World, And I Am A Digital Girl...(if you can figure this musical phrase out to a popular 80's tune, more power to ya!)...But seriously...I am NOT a Digital Girl.  I have little to no experience, so this challenge was a CHALLENGE!!!  But I did figure it out - YEAH!!!  And Template Dreams made it that much easier, except what to use - they have SO MANY templates to choose from and if you are a Digital Crafter, you have to check them out!
Anyway, I may not be a Digital Girl, but I am a HUGE Football Girl - LOVE when Football season starts - one of the many reasons I love Fall.  So I had to choose "The Big Game" template.  SO MUCH FUN!!! I loved the little button/brads that they had so I printed them on regular white cardstock and cut them out.  I also loved the paper choices, it was hard to choose, but I narrowed it down and printed two out on some white cardstock as well.  Because I LOVE my Cricut, I did use the phrase "Go Team" from Life's A Party, cut at 1 1/4".  I threw some twine around the paper and decided to just tie a knot - more masculine than a bow.  I popped the button/brads up on some foam tape and called it AWESOME! Not too shabby for my first time playing around with digital stuff.
The challenge over at HIMCR is to create a project using Fall Colors - and even though my card isn't the traditional Fall colors, Football is definitely a Fall activity.  I hope you are able to join us this week for a fun challenge and be entered for your chance at a gift cert over at Template Dreams.

  3. Madonna would have been proud !!! :-)
    I enjoy football season too but for a different reason - I chaperone our band on all their trips so every Friday night is football night for me. Now remember that I grew up in a place where football is actually soccer so one way or another I've been involved in some sort of football every weekend :)
    I love your card and the kit you picked. Worked beautifully together for your lovely card.
