It's Almost Time for Football Season


I had to make another card with my favorite mouse Cocoa from Sweet 'n Sassy, and this time he's with his football. I colored the image with Copics, and die cut it with some Gina Marie Designs dies and an old piece of dsp that looks like cork. I embossed a piece of cocoa-colored cardstock with a CB ef, then covered it with Versamark and clear ep and heat set it - making it resemble the texture of a football. I added some neutral twine, a few SU! candy dots and a little clip at the top that says TEAM. It's a just for fun card as the new football season starts getting under way.

I'm sharing this with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge #17 - which is a/g but you must use a critter.

Thanks for checking in and I wish you a good day!

Very cute football image. Your mosaic embossing folder does resemble the texture of a football! Great idea!

Oh, this is adorable, Carol! Football started last week for the Baltimore Ravens and they have another game tonight so we are SO excited for football season! Cocoa has the right idea! I love your coloring on this and that embossed piece that looks like football leather! So many cool things you added to this card to make it stand out! I love it all! TFS and stay cool, my friend! #goravens

Yes, It is soon going to be that time again. Wonder if it will be as exciting as last year? Can you tell that I'm an Eagles fan?
Your card is really cute (especially Cocoa...what's not to like?) Great card to start the season.
