Alabama vs. Auburn



Living in Alabama, I am right in the middle of the legendary Alabama vs. Auburn rivalry. Half my friends and family are huge Alabama fans and the other half are Auburn fans. The last few years, the rivalry has heated up as they have both won National Championships. Things are so competitive here that when you meet new people, it is one of the first things they ask you about. To play it safe, I tell them I am a Lobo fan (University of New Mexico) - that usually confuses them since hardly anyone has heard of the Lobos. LOL!
This week's Dude Time Doodles challenge is Anything Goes so I decided to use Ted Tightend to make an Alabama card for a friend. I had so much fun that I went ahead and made an Auburn card as well.


I am entering these dueling cards in the Make It Monday #98 Anything Goes challenge as well. This is my first time entering and I love how they encourage other participants to encourage fellow participants. How great is that!











This week's Dude Time Doodles challenge is sponsored by Ribbon Carousel - one of my new favorite places! Be sure and enter the challenge so you will have a chance to win one of their gift certificates.


Hugz to all no matter what team is your favorite!

P.S. Benzi - thanks for the houndstooth ribbon and Roll Tide!!!

  1. Great cards, but I think you are adding fuel to this fire with your last comment! Lol
    I always cheer for the under-dog, so I flip flop who I cheer for!

    Today, it would be Auburn just b/c I like the orange polka dots...lol

  6. These cards are Stunning. We only have 2 footy teams her in West Australia so the rivalry is very strong also. sometimes Husband against wife..Being a Taxi driver I try to be neutral and tell everyone I support a team from Queensland where I was born so I will not offend anyone..LOL..I saw these fantastic cards on MIM..Loz

  7. Absolutely LOVE your cards! Fantastic coloring. I was asked the same question when we moved here and was told I had to choose one or the other. I then proceeded to say I was a (Oregon) Ducks fan. At that time no one around here had heard of them either and that shut them up.

  9. These cards are both so fun! I love how you colored that image and made one for each team to avoid controversy! LOL Sports fans really get serious about their favorites don't they? I'm not a football fan, so either of these works for me! LOL

    Hey, I think I know that Alabama guy....looking very familiar. :-)
    Glad to see that houndstooth ribbon....couldn't make a Bama card without it.
