Big Day!.....FMS270






The big guy and I are both football fans with one big difference......he prefers college games.....I prefer the NFL......and "playing" in our family Fantasy Football League. (Have I mentioned that I won the league this year?!?!?!) A lot of football games are watched here every season! 

I often craft while watching the games and I created this card during the Alabama/Clemson championship game. Congrats to all my stamping Clemson fans out there.....this card's for you!



I love Kim's long tall sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  It was perfect to showcase this stylish gal from Beautiful You!  I watercolored her outfit with Zig Markers and an Aquapainter - loving the orange and gray together!


Stamp Set:  SU! Beautiful You, SU! Birthday Banners
Paper: Peekaboo Peach, Carried Away DSP
Ink: Versafine Black, Zig Orange, Smoky Slate

The only thing I know about football is that the Eagles didn't make the playoffs....so I'll take your word for all of it! But your card is DIVINE! LOVE the colors!

Love the orange with the gray, wonderful color combo! I know all the CU fans in my house would love it too!

My eyes were drawn right to the orange and gray dots, Linda ... you'll forgive me if I am honest about not liking football, right? Wowzers this is the coolest card, and a gorgeous stamp!!!

Claire Ventre said...

Wow! I love this card - as all your cards, simple elegance!!

Now this is a great color combination! And your coloring is so good -- love the shading on her dress. I'm afraid I have to agree with your husband -- we only follow college football in our house. Congrats on your big win and bragging rights for a whole year!

Oh I just love this so much!

I LOVE this card! Love the classy colors and patterns; you used the sketch so beautifully. I'm such a fan of polka dotted paper and I have so little of it. I especially like images that are "edgy" as this fashionplate is. :-) Wonderful card. I hope I can use the sketch to advantage, too.

I totally love the orange and gray together!! Lovely coloring on that pretty image!

Jen Brum said...

This is such a great card Linda! I love that classy lady! The orange and grey look fabulous together! We are hockey fans in our house and no one cheers for the same team! That would be too easy!!!

Wow, wow, wow! I totally love your card Linda, love the orange and grey (they are fabulous together), love the white polka dots (so sweet on grey) , love the classy image, love the way you colored it ... love absolutely everything.

Jen Mitchell said...

What a fashionable card this is. I love how you've colored her up and the orange sure makes a statement! Congratulations on your fantasy win. I was no where near the top this year - injuries plagued my team :(

Narelle Farrugia said...

Oh she is just gorgeous! I adore your colouring here Linda - she's just perfect!

Kim S said...

She is stunning on this sketch, but even more so with your use of peach and slate!! Such a fabulous and stylish look!

Cindy Hall said...

I thought you hated coloring and/or watercoloring??? This card is fabulous! Have you been taking lessons? The shading is perfect and I love the little wash of gray. Gorgeous, Linda!
