Having Fun

Finally, I've had the time to just make a card for sheer fun of it.  To go through the sets of "must have" stamps I've been ordering and get to use some of them.

When I saw this Bun Bun stamp set from the Cat's Pajamas I just had to have it.  Funny thing is, I don't know a thing about football, it's just cute and I figured it's be a good stamp to use for making cards for guys.

 I have no idea which teams are in the which league and whose going to the Superbowl or when it is, but I know it's coming up soon and it'll be on at our house and hubby will plan to have dinner and snacks around half time.  

To get the colors for Bun Buns uniform I did a Google search to see which teams were playing.  I was surprised to learn that they weren't determined yet but there were four that were the contenders.  I picked the 49ers colors for Bun Bun's uniform's colors for a couple reasons -  Bun Bun is from San Francisco, the 49ers have the best colors of all the contenders and if I had to pick a town from the four that's the one I'd pick.  I'm a former Jersey girl, that's Jets territory, on general principals alone I have to be against New England...

But I digress...

Card making...I started making this card on Thursday. I hate using an exacto knife.  The card was almost finished when I stabbed my thumb putting away my exacto knife and then proceeded to leave a large drop of blood on my card.  It was a time when an embellishment just wasn't going to do the trick and my thumb didn't want to stop bleeding.  What started out as a fun morning was turning into bad time.   I actually had to unassemble (is that even a word?) the card.  I had to walk away from it and let it be for awhile.  I went back to it today and finished it up.

Here's the deets:
stamp - the Cat's Pajama's "Go! Fight! Win!"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - My Favorite Things "Kraft", "Steel Blue" and "Safety Orange" card stock; Stampin' Up "Cherry Cobbler" card stock; Recollections Scrapbook paper
miscellaneous - copics;  Spellbinder's Oval dies; The Cat's Pajama's chevron die; button; twine
