All-Star SFYTT

It is Saturday and you know what that means; A new Sketch For You To Try and Football! That's right, my son has another game today and in honor of him and his effort, I made him a card. I have made him one last year and it eventually got stuck into his dresser (by me), but recently he pulled out all of his trophies and awards from last year and has them proudly displayed, so I thought he could use another card as well!

I apologize for being so late this morning. I have mentioned in a previous post that Saturday is my only day to sleep in, so today I took full advantage. Actually, a little too much advantage! LOL! My husband came in and told me that it was Ten O'Clock. Eeek! I haven't slept in that long for quite a while. I have been waking up every night for the dreaded pregnancy potty breaks (is that too much information?) LOL! and last night I couldn't get back to sleep so I layed awake for hours until I finally drifted off again. So...here I am a few hours behind!

I always use my old standbys when making my "sports" themed cards; Sporting Goods and Sporting. I did add in a few PTI sets to freshen it up; fresh alphabet and Star Prints. I hope he enjoys his new card this year!

Oh, this is sooo perfect, in so many ways! The jumbo brads and twill, the texture, the vertical strip/yard makers! My little George is turning 2 in less than 2 weeks, and loves football, so I hope you don't mind if I use this as inspiration for his birthday card!

Give your belly a rub for me!

This is probably the best sports card I've seen in forever! I love the texture, the twill accent, eyelet grommet things, and the 'field paper' how very clever!

i love this football card, kelly! you holding onto the sporting sets is just like me holding onto my Toybox set! I just can't give it up (even though it NEVER sees ink!). maybe you've just inspired me to get it out! i hope you are feeling well, besides the lack of sleep for the potty breaks in the middle of the night! i don't miss that at all! take care, sus

It's fabulous Kelly! I love masculine, textured cards and the football theme works great in my household too! Love those SU sets- I have the same ones I believe!

What a great celebration for your guy! This is a sports set I'm not sure I can part with. It's got it all. Love the way you pulled the sports theme together!

Wonderful card. I like how you used the large grommets and ribbon to tie the two paper colors together. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! This card is incredible! So much texture and I love the arrangement of pieces of the layout. Just everything! I hope it ends up in a football scrapbook someday. I"m sure it will.
