Are You Ready for Some Football???

That's right! It's September and that means that fall is quickly approaching! Here in Massachusetts fall means many things to many people. We have apple picking, cider, hay rides, pumpkin patches, the best Yankee Candles of the year, cool, crisp, beautiful air, colorful, crunchy leaves on the sidewalk...we've got it all! BUT...one thing tends to stand out around here. Football. Fan or not, you really can't avoid it. It's just part of the landscape here in New England. You see, our sports fans tend to be a bit...hmmm...passionate. Sure. We'll use that word instead of crazy. HAHAHA! So, this being my first post over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps as guest designer for September, I decided to celebrate that football tradition with this fun card!

Dream Big

I used the super cute Cocoa football stamp from the All Star Cocoa set for this card! He is SO CUTE!!! I layered My Mind's Eye squares cut with Spellbinder's dies for the background. Cocoa is paper pieced with Coordinations Cardstock and Basic Grey paper for the football. A bit of May Arts burlap string is the perfect fiber for this card! I wanted a fall type sentiment so I decided to go with sort of a back to school vibe with the Dream Big sentiment from the Dream Big set. This is a gorgeous stamp set! I love the sentiments in it!

  10. Cute and clever, I love the sentiment.
    Ive got to tell you this- I've been waiting for my SSD set that I won, I requested Heartsong 2 and it was out of stock so it's been a while. So excited to get my package today, opened it up, and it was the Twilight kids! Yikes! I emailed Heather, I hope I get it soon, I was holding off on the challenges until I got that set. I would be having a good laugh if I wasn't so disappointed!
