More Thankful Thoughts....PPA170




I am continuing with my fall appreciation week with this card using some warm fall colors and burlap.  And I am thankful that fall brings the return of football and the start of our fantasy football season. By some amazingly good luck and Tim Tebow's playoff run in Denver I actually won the league one year!  So I sat down yesterday to get my team set for this week's games and I noticed an e-mail from Yahoo - our host site for the league.  Something new this year - the experts at Yahoo send you an in-depth e-mail critiquing your team.  So thanks Yahoo for sending me such a sweet e-mail ranking my team C for cellar and telling me I did not "capitalize on my fortuitous draft position" and that I have the worst group of running backs in the league.......way to ruin the moment..........




Pals Paper Arts has a terrific color challenge this week and it works very nicely with The Paper Players Fall Challenge!

HAHAHAHA!!! You just keep playing your fantasy football just the way you want to and don't worry about those nerds at Yahoo!!! Your card is a fun way to use those colors---which are a wee bit intimidating to me! I'll have to put on my thinking cap (or should I say helmet?) for this combo!

Mary Fish said...

You really inspire me to use that burlap . . . what a lovely fall card!

Dawn Tidd said...

Ha ha! Yahoo doesn't know everything! You'll be the Cinderella team this year! I love your card, can't remember if I ordered those Thinlits or not. I hope I did! The burlap is the perfect touch. Great card for keeping your Fall theme going!

I am rooting for the Yahoo underdog - GO Linda!! No matter what Yahoo says about football, you could teach them a thing or two about card making!

Patti MacLeith said...

Linda KNOWS football!! How did you get the thinlits to stick to the burlap? You are a MASTER!!

Marisa said...

Awesome card, Linda! I love the thinlet over the burlap...very cool! Good luck with your fantasy football season...prove 'em wrong!!! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

Jen said...

I'm glad nobody is critiquing my team! Although one of the guys in my league said I did good job in the draft "for a rookie." Time will tell! By the way I totally love thee burlap!

Susan Itell said...

Just love these framelits! I do hope that Stampin' Up continues with them! The burlap ribbon and the way your frayed the ends makes it so festive and fun!

Love your card, Linda! The die cut sentiment looks wonderful against the burlap! And, obviously, Yahoo doesn't know what they're talking about!
