From Courtneys Closet Challenge #15 ---GO TEAM!



Oh I loved this week's From Courtney's Closet Challenge.

This week was not based on wee Courtney's attire, but the challenge was to make a card based on my favorite sports theme..EASY PEASY! GO DUCKS !!!! (of course Courtney was pictured in sports attire on the challenge page)

My 2 daughters both graduated for the University of Oregon so I have a lot of time invested there! My oldest daughter Erin and her hubby, Matt, were also on the cheerleading squad for the U of O- so I went to a lot of games. Mostly to watch them, but through that became a big Oregon Ducks fan.
Now, because Cole's Mommy and Daddy cheered for the Oregon team, it's no wonder baby Cole is Oregon's #1 fan now. hehe

Now, I realize there is no stamping on this card, but I so enjoyed making it! If anyone is familiar with Autzen Stadium, they have this big screen (Megatron) at one end of the playing field to enable everyone to view the plays and replays easier. So...this card is Cole on the Megatron! Go Cole Go!

I made the little yellow pennants by punching a square with a 1 1/4 inch punch and cutting them into triangles. They are attached on dimensionals. I couldn't find ribbon to match so I ended up coloring some black and white Stampin' Up ribbon with my yellow marker and it matched perfectly! And oh, I just so happen to also have some Oregon designer paper on hand....


Make your own colored ribbon!

Courtney rootin' on her favorite team, ya think? Not Boston, right Libby? I think I remember
U of O playing Mich State before...I think....

Stamps: None

Cardstock: Yoyo yellow, black and U of O paper

Ink: None sentiment computer generated

Misc: SU ribbon, punch, dimensionals, word window punch, sizzix die cut, alpha stickers, yellow marker

Pin It!
