Super Bowl Sunday?? Is that Today?

Looking for the Sweethearts blog hop? Click HERE! 
So I guess today is Super Bowl Sunday!! I DO NOT like sports or know anything about them but I was left very strict instructions on what kind of pizza and wings to make sure were here for dinner!

So while I was hopping around I came across Scrappin Sista ( My fellow Creative Cutter Room DT friend!)
and she is having a Super Bowl Sunday Challenge! And since today I am all about challenges, I thought I would join in.

The first thing I did was look up on-line what a football looks like up close (LOL I know....)

Then I searched my cartridges for a football... and guess what?? No luck!

So I ended up using the lemon from Simply Charmed!

I used the mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder and hand cut the white stripes.  I punched holes and threaded some white string through. 

I guess I was talking to myself out-loud trying to decide on ribbon and my daughter told me I had football ribbon... WHAT??? Why do I have football ribbon?? But I guess I did and she knew exactly where it was! 

Sports paper is from the $1.00 bin at Target.

I checked with Husband and he gave his approval except he said I should have added Rawlings... Hmmm seriously?? Then I was told I was obstructing the T.V.

Thanks Christel for this Super challenge!!

  3. Great job, you sound like myself. I know barely anything about sports. TFS.
