I wanna be a Cowboy baby!!

Wellll, even though the Dallas Cowboys arent doing too well this year so nephew Conner is still a huge fan of theirs. Remember THIS picture of him? Well this card is for him. I am sad to say though, my grandbaby saw this card on the table and said "FOOBALL!!" and grabbed it and left a few spots on it...I tried to cover it up with some shading on the hoodie, but you can still see some. Hopefully Conner wont mind though, lol. Here's the card:

And you can laugh at my hand drawn football, I did! But I guess it's not too bad if my 2 yr.old grandbaby recognized it AS a football! LOL! I made this using Mel's Just So Sporty set from Gina K Designs. (And word is out that the new release on Nov. 13th, Mel is coming out with a NEW set that will coordinate with this set and Little Tees! Can't Wait!!) I stamped the hoodied on blue cardstock and used my JustRite Stamper to do the words 'cowboys'. The little star is in the set also. I then paper pieced on the sleeves and hood part with just white cardstock, but then colored the grey in with copic marker. I drew the 'play diagram'....don't know if its correct or not, haha! That is about it!

We finally received our first paycheck from DH's new job...YAY! Now have to play catch up a bit, not too bad though, just having to put my stamping purchases on hold a bit...and with certain new releases coming up..its gonna kill me! LOL! That's alright...Ima gonna enter every contest there is to enter and challenge and maybe I get lucky and win some new rubbah! I NEED to smell some new rubbah!! haha! It's addictive isn't it?? But even if I dont, I'll be able to catch up next month for sure in my rubber obcession! Give myself an early Christmas for sure! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful lazy Sunday!

A Cowboy's fan...that's Julie's husband Ken's favorite or lose. Awesome card and if you have smudges that's ok as football players are not always clean guys. Love your card. Pat
