My Sheri Crafts-In Stitches and Cricut Cardz Challenge-Anything Goes

Over at My Sheri Crafts this week challenge #26 is 'In Stitches'. You are challenged to stitch something on your project. It can be real or faux and manual or machine. They post a new challenge every Saturday.  Then over at Cricut Cardz  challenge #46 is Anything Goes!! Make a card using any cartridge, colors or theme you'd like. I just love those kind!! You have until midnight EST, Tues., 10/19.
For my card I decided to make a card for one of the guys that I work with. He is a fellow Asst. Manager. He is a big football fan. Alabama is our team of choice! Roll Tide!!!!! We lost this past weekend for the first time this year. (Janis is smiling big over there. I can see it Janis!! Her team beat us!) I thought I'd make him this card so he will feel better about the loss. I used 3 Birds on Parade and cut the football bird on page 51. I cut all of the layers. Then I used Everyday Paperdolls and cut the goal post. I cut the bottom part of the goal post in red. It doesn't have that layer so I used my Gypsy and ran the top part off the side of the page and cut enough of it and then cut it to fit. Then I only glued part of the goal post to my card and cut the rest of it off. I used George for my 'GO TEAM GO', welding letters together. I used my white gel pen to make the football field. Now I'm not a really huge sports person, so I had to get online and hunt a picture to see how it really looked! LOL I then did some faux stitching in white around the letters, in red around the helmet and on the inside some white on the red and red on the white. I'm gonna give this card to him on Saturday morning when we get to work so he'll hopefully have a smile on his face before Alabama plays again! Hop on over to My Sheri Crafts and Cricut Cardz and join in on the fun! Hope ya'll like my card. :)
