Hi there!  It's Thursday and over at Catch The Bug Challenge Blog it is Oldie, but Goodie inpsiration day.  I am featuring a cutie called, Bugaboo Brat Football Boy which I originally colored to put into my son's scrapbook, but he injured himself.  Needless to say the both of us will be watching from the stands this year.  I decided to make this into a birthday card as we aren't going to need a book.   I searched up football birthday sayings and found a website called Wishes, Messages, Sayings  where the fabulous inside sentiment came from.  It appears that it is a free website, but of course I wanted to give them credit!

Which football team is your fave? 
Without further ado....

Products used:  white/black/green card stock, copic markers, Darice striped embossing folder, gold/red sequins, Spectrum Noir sparkle pen, white gelly roll pen, Inside sentiment, Word doc front sentiment, stickles, and Bugaboo Brat Football boy

Challenges entering:


  1. Your fabulous colouring and lovely clean design showcase the footballer perfectly Joy. Such a shame your son injured himself, hope it's nothing too serious and he'll be able to play again next season.

  2. Joy your card is adorable and a great birthday card for your son. So sorry to hear that he got injured. My son played football and I was always worried, especially when I would hear those pads or helmets hit, yikes. Living in WI I HAVE to be a Green Bay Packer fan as well as being in Madison a Badger fan too. I also graduated from UW-Madison so definitely a Bucky Badger fan!!! Needless to say....that was 29 years ago now, lol.

    1. He had ACL repair this week... i guess him being down has explained my absence from blog world. I am an Ohio State Buckeye Fan through and through! But Lisa, don't you know I'm still 29! Forever. My kids put a 29 on bday cake every year and then add individual candles for the unspoken years. They are brats!!! lol

  3. What a great image for the front of your card Joy, and so well coloured. The sentiment really does complete the card wonderfully. I (sort of) follow Rugby Union, and the All Blacks!

    1. Maxine, I like watching rugby, but don't know much about it. My son's high school only added it to their program 4 years ago. I'm hoping the sport grows in this area.

  4. That is so cute and what great bright colors. I do hope he heals quickly!

    1. Thanks Lola! He's on the mend, taking it one day at a time.

  5. Wat een mooie stoere kaart met een leuke digi. Prachtig ingekleurd.
