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

  10. Great image and love that sentiment! Well done for coming up with a winning double :)

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

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
