For the Sports Fan


For inspiration I asked my dh what he would like to see in a Manly card - and sports was one of his suggestions. I found this Game Day stamp in the Mike's $1 bin (don't you just love those stamps?) I used the same Basic Grey paper as yesterday... the green from the Scarlett's Letter pack. I then measured out the yard lines for the football field and drew the lines and number with white gel pen.

I added a good luck stamp which I also found at Mikes. It had a Shamrock in the center between the words, so I dug out an old package of charms and found a football. I snipped the top of the charm off with pliers and attached it with a glue dot.

BASIC GREY UPDATE
I just tracked my latest shipment of Basic Grey 6x6 packs, and it will arrive on Wednesday. I have a few more packs still available. Check out my store Creative Threads to see what packs are coming in.

Very cute! Adding the football field lines with the gel pen is just genius!

Great Card! I am so glad you've decided to take the masculine challenge ... I can learn so much this week. I never would have drawn the lines in the field and would have been frustrated because it was missing something. Love the football over the shamrock too!

It's so nice to see something manly that doesn't have a background stamp that's argyle or plaid, although I'm sure you could make that look cool! Your work is wonderful and helpful to this veteran stamper cum new demonstrator. Thanks!
