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

  2. Both cards are fabulous! Love the backgrounds you created for both of them as well.

  3. Cute cards. You have colored them wonderfully.

  4. These are brilliant Nancy, you can't lose lol

  5. Simply fabulous!!! Love them both :)

  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.

  8. Fabulous cards and great coloring! Thank you for sharing... :)

  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

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
