Happy Friday

Hi Dear Friends

Looks like we’ve nearly made it through another week (and a hot one for most of the country from what I understand).  Do you have exciting weekend plans?  I’d love to hear about them. 

We don’t appear to have much on the agenda this weekend.  We are teaching children’s church on Sunday and have a meeting about that afterwards. Teaching the kids is so much fun. I say this in full confession that Carlin does most of the teaching. I do a little review piece and then listen and get taught myself!  Pure joy! These kids are a blast!

Anyway, today’s card is showing another use for the Lawn Fawn Set “Bannerific” which I’m told has sold out but new ones will be in soon.  I also used Harold’s ABCs to fill in the pennants. 


This is in honor of preseason football kicking off this weekend. Our Colts play the San Francisco 49ers. Now, preseason football doesn’t matter, but it does mean that the real stuff is in view!  I love football and cannot wait for it to start. 

Back to the card, I think something like this would be great to send out for a football party invite!  I would make it a little differently next time because the horseshoes in the banner around “Go” seemed to confuse things. Also, I would use all "capitol letters in Colts so that it was clear that the “l” is not an “i” .  At any rate, you get an idea. 

One last plug, today is your last chance to comment for a chance to win one of the new Lawn Fawn Sets.  Feel free to go back and comment on earlier posts if you haven’t already.  Comments after 11:59 tonight won’t be considered in the drawing for the winner. I’ll probably post the winner on Monday since the blogging world seems to get very quiet on weekends.

Best of luck all

Hugs and blessings

Very different! But will be appreciated by fans.

How fun! I love that Sapphire blue background. I was born in September, so I'm always attracted to anything in that color, but it's so hard to find in papercraft supplies!

Those Bannerific banners are the perfect way to cheer on your team!

Go Colts! Pre-season doesn't count, but it is a cheap way to get into the new stadium....I still haven't been! Cute stamp set and card is simple, but cute!
