Are you Ready for some Football?

It is definitely football season in my house!  That means Sundays, Monday nights, Thursday nights when that starts and finally even on Saturdays!  And I am right there with Steve watching the games, cheering and jeering just as loudly (because every one knows that we can do it better than those guys!) LOL
What could be better than watching a bunch of buff men running around in tight pants, umm, I mean a bunch of professional athletes running around playing football!

In honor of my husband's favorite team 'THE PITTSBURG STEELERS" (that's how he says it!)
My card today is black, yellow, red and sports the appropriate Steeler necessities.

Yeah, a little on the bright side, isn't it! 
The image is from Fresh Brewed Designs and is called 'Marina, one of a kind".
She is one of the beautiful rubber stamps that Heather released last spring.  You can
find her and all the other water loving creatures at the Fresh Brewed Store.
All of the papers used are plain cardstock except the one with the image which is copic
x-press blend paper.  The image is stamped with Memento ink and colored with
copic markers and cut out with a nestibility.  There is glossy accents over the bubbles.
Both sentiments are computer generated and cut out with nesties.
The black and yellow background was run through my Grand Calibur (Yippee! I have been
wanting to say that since I bought it.  I LOVE IT) with a cuttlebug embossing folder.
The cute little pom-poms were made with yellow and black twine from
The Twinery.  I just wrapped around a scrap of paper, tied the bundle  in the middle, trimmed all the loops open and even and then tied them again after bending them in half where the first knot was.
A few liquid pearls to finish the card and TA-DA!

Gale! This is great! Who would have thought to use a mermaid as a fan! That took some creative thinking for sure!!! I LOVE this card. It is so unique and fun. Love the football and the tassels. (I agree! I want that cb folder too... but can't find it in the stores around here. one day :D)

Hope you have a lovely day and weekend Gale.
Sending hugs and smiles.
