A Steelers B-Day Card
Hello Blogging Friends,
I did not fall off the face of the earth even though it may seem like it. I have just been so busy helping hubby enlarge our deck. I've become quite the construction worker. I have also been getting caught up on my spring cleaning, which I am very late in doing. So those are my excuses, now onto my card for today.
It was my son's 42nd birthday last week ( I don't know how that happened seeing as how I'm still just 29 myself - LOL)and he is probably the Steelers biggest fan. Has been since he was a very small boy. I made a card similar to this one a few months ago, but did not incorporate the Steelers into it. I started with Football Cocoa from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and colored him with Copic Markers. I made the football field with SU's Garden Green and Whisper White card stock.
Notice that Cocoa is on the 42nd line. The Pittsburgh Steelers was computer generated and I punched out little yellow, red and blue dots because I did not have a "star" punch to truly resemble their logo, but I think I came close enough.
The important thing was that my son got a kick out of it and that's all that counts. I will try to get back on a more regular schedule of posting. I thank you very much for taking a minute to stop by here tonight. See you soon.
