“Touchdown” – DT2 Challenge

                              Q:  What did the football say to the punter?
                              A:  I get a kick out of you.
So it’s time for another challenge!!  The challenge this week for DT2 is “Touchdown.”  We are to make a card, layout or project about football using green, blue and brown and add embossing. 

This card I actually made for a friend’s husband’s birthday.  What a perfect challenge!
He happens to love the Dallas Cowboys and his favorite player was/is Emmitt Smith – hence the number 22. 
Hey, did you hear the Dallas Cowboys joke?

Q: What does a Dallas Cowboys fan do when his team has won the Super Bowl?
A: He turns off the PlayStation 3.

Just kidding!  We gotta love our Dallas Cowboys – right??!! 

Okay... Now to the serious stuff... Allow me to introduce my card and explain how I made it...

Card Size is 5x7
Inner layer (blue) is 4.5 x 6.5 – embossed w/swiss dots

All paper used is Recollections and/or DCWV Glitter stack

Football player is from Everyday Paper Dolls -- pg 48 cut at 3”
Football, helmit, uniform and goal post also cut from pg 48
Uniform has blue stickles
“Happy Birthday” is from Wild Card – real dial size – 2.5”
Grass is from Everyday Paper Dolls – pg 40 cut at 2”   -- green stickles added
Stars are from Create A Critter – page 71 – different sizes
Football ribbon is “Celebrate it” from Michaels
The name is some stickers that I've picked up from somewhere!

It’s a pretty simple card and I had lots of fun making it!   And one last joke for you….
Q:  What football player has very strong legs and builds houses?
               A:  A car-punter.
 I hope you enjoyed my card (and my jokes) because.....  

... that's the buzz for now!


  1. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
