Three Clover's Thursday Challenge #45-New Year or Celebration! GO DUCKS!


Binky Boy Duck Fan

Welcome back to a new 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge...Make a New Year's Card and/ or Celebration themed card!  Well...all of us  University of Oregon Duck's football fans are certainly celebrating this year-and  on  New Year's Day too...we will be playing in the Rose Bowl January 1st!

I made this little mini album to chronicle Cole's years of attending the Duck's games with his Mommy and Daddy.I saw one similar to this at a craft store and fell in love with it!

Now, I am not a diehard sports fan, but Cole's Mom (my daughter Erin) and his Daddy Matt were U of O cheerleaders in their college days  and my daughter Abby also graduated from there...so I became an avid DUCKS fan!

Save me from that scary DUCK Uncle Ed!


Half time nap?


OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH...At the Ducks games all the fans put their fingers together in the shape of an "O" and yell Ohhhhhhhh during the game. Cole is making the "O" with his hands in this pic. You can tell he comes from a family of cheerleaders...have to fit in a stunt or two also!


With Mom and Dad at a game...still keeping an eye on the big DUCK!


Made this page with the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge..Did you know that the Oregon Duck mascot was approved for use by Walt Disney himself? Who doesn't love Donald Duck? This is a Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards journal stamp. These stamps are great!


Gotta stay warm!


I hope you have enjoyed this little mini album. I made it as a special gift for Matt's parents, Grandma D and Grumps. My wish to them for a better 2010!

My wish for all my stamper friends and family  in 2010 is a happy and healthy New Year.  I hope you find reason for a Celebration here and there during the year as well!
