Happy Friday. It's a dreary day here in New England. Cold. Wet. Grey. Yuck. Lucky for me I am meeting a friend for lunch who I haven't seen in a while, so that will add a nice bright spot to an otherwise blah day. Maybe a nice soup and salad meal from Panera will warm things up a bit too.
So before I show you my card today, let's talk about football. We have a big game Saturday night - Tom Brady and the New England Patriots against Tim Tebow and the Denver Bronco's. Sadly, my husband and I won't be able to watch the game in it's entirety. We had made plans to go to Maine to see my Mom and her husband in their opera. So, we will be watching her performance from 7:30-9:00 and not able to see the game till half-time. I think I'm going to owe my husband big time for this one. Luckily the show is short and nearby the theater is a sports bar. My mom will be off at her cast party and Bob and I will hit the sports bar after the show to cheer our our beloved team. We are hopeful that the Pat's pull off a win. The Bronco's have a lot of momentum, so it should be a good/competitive game. I just hope we win. I'm a big Tebow fan, but against Brady - I'm rooting for my home town boy. Go Pats! Do you have a big game coming up? Who are you rooting for Saturday night? And, on the lighter side... check out the videos below. First up is a lighthearted skit picking on Tim Tebow's awesome overtime pass last week. Second, Jimmy Fallon doing David Bowie/Tim Tebow singing. We all laughed when we saw these. Enjoy!
So, now my card! The papertrey ink make it monday technique this week was to create a background using border dies. I just got this fun zigzag border die and decided to use it on cork and make a textured background for my bitty bird get well card.
I chose bitty bird as my stamp for this because our bloggers challenge this week was to make a card with 'things with wings' and yes, birds have wings! The birds are die cut in Hawaiian shores felt, then stamped with momento black ink. They are quite colorful and fun.
