"Monsters of the Midway" PMS Style !!

Are you ready for some football???!!!! I am! 1st games of the season start tomorrow!! I love dressing up to support my team, making some not so healthy game day food, and spending a Sunday afternoon with family and friends hootin' and hollerin' at the T.V. :0) So can you guess who I'm cheering for?? Clue #1 - Blue and Orange, Clue #2 - I'm from Northern Illinois, Clue #3 - (and oh so appropriate) one of their nicknames is "Monsters of the Midway"!

Yep you guessed it - GO BEARS!!! I'm feeling hopeful and optimistic that we are going to have a GREAT season, thanks to a little help from Denver ;0) But anyway, on to the card . . . .

This was made for PMS's release party challenge to CASE a card from the PMS gallery on SCS and change two things. There are so many great ideas and gorgeous cards in there, that it was difficult to choose. But I loved this card by Christi Thorsen . It was simple, but fun! I love the scalloped black background, and I was dying to try the adorable way she added the ribbon.

I'm still looking for a stamp that says Wanna Play? If anyone knows where I could get one, let me know. I was looking through all of my sentiments trying to find the "perfect" one when I remembered the PMS Monster Sayings set had a stamp that read "Need a cuddle?" I was thinking, that would be kind of funny - a football monster wanting to cuddle - but wait!! If I change the "C" to a "H" I get "Need a huddle?" AAAHHHH how appropriate!!!!

It didn't come out as cleanly as I hoped, but the idea is still there and I still think it's pretty darn cute! There's still one more challenge that I'm hoping to get to later on today, but the weather is looking beautiful so I may be swayed to play outside instead :0) . Hope your day is filled with some playtime, and if you're not rooting for anyone tomorrow then give a shout out for the Monsters of the Midway :0) GO BEARS!!!

  2. So cute. Love what you do with those monsters!

  3. This is great Randee!! What a cute monster!! I guess it wouldn't like being called cute since he is a monster but... it sure is cute!! Great card!

    Thank you for your super sweet comment on my news the other day! I really appreciate it! I am glad that we are blog friends!

    Also... Thanks too for the tip on sending in my Thanks card to the embellish mag call... I had seen Courtney's blog about the mag but didn't realize when I made the card that it fit!! So... again... Thank You! :)

  4. Great card and he's a cutie, fab coloring Randee. At my home it's the Chargers who we watch but I love football, basketball, baseball, and soccer. Can't wait for the world cup, I watch every game I can so much fun!!
