SSC170 Eagles Birthday

Happy Monday, all!  The card I have today won't win any stamping contests, but hopefully it will win the approval of my SIL!!  It's Wayne's 40th birthday tomorrow, so I used the Sunday Stamps sketch to make a card for him:

Wayne is a die-hard Philadelphia sports fan...any team from Philly, he's cheering for them.  Since the Eagles played and won on Saturday and are one step closer to the Super Bowl, I thought I would make him an Eagles-themed card:

I printed out some Eagles, fussy-cut them and adhered them to some Smoky Slate Stitched squares:

I used Labeler Alphabet to spell the banner, stamping it in Basic Black and Tranquil Tide, then added Large Numbers in Basic Black and put them all on a couple of diecut circles:

Gorgeous Grunge (ret) was used to stamp the background on my Tranquil Tide card.  And since my card was a wee bit bigger than the standard size, I created an envelope with some retired DSP and my Envelope Punch comes in handy when you need a special-sized envelope!!  And again, I have no pictures of Cassidy, but I do have a picture of another Eagles fan, chilling on the couch with her Eagles blanket!

Enjoy your day, stay warm if it's cold where you are, and be blessed!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new Stamp Ink Paper challenge!

We are not Eagles fans but we were glad to see them win. Perry rooted for them in college when he was at Lycoming. BUT I am a fan of your card and wouldn't be surprised if it won! It would be my choice so far :-) We are trying to stay warm in sunny southwest FL so we had chili last night. We are blessed not to have snow and ice. Happy birthday to Wayne...oh, to be 40 again, or 50 or 60, or 70 even!

What a fantastic card you made, Wayne! He is going to love it! It's great seeing them (Philly) in the headlines since it's been so long for them! Rooting for anyone that's not a Steelers or Patriots fan! Haha! Eden looks right at home all snuggled in her blankie. She's adorable! Anyways, love the card especially the colors & design and a huge Happy Birthday to Wayne! TFS and stay warm!

Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or
did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog
jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks
