Tomorrow Is Super Bowl Sunday!!!!!


Last year Laurie Wilson at Doodle Pantry came out with some football birds.  I turned one of them into a Seahawk.

Using a precolored image, I added more color here and there, add #12 (I'm sure you have heard of the 12th man) and also added the Seahawk on the helmet.  I didn't know I could cut out something that small!
Love the green grid paper and the footballs are a row from one more of the papers included in the set.
The shape of the football took me several attempts.  After I finished cutting it and distressing it, my husband pointed out that it needed laces.  Oh, boy.  Thinking cap.  Solution:  pieces from my elongated hole punch which is really meant for punching holes for ribbon.
All in all, I really think it turned out cute.
Next year, in time for football season,  I will make cards similar to this one to send off to OWH.  I think they would be cute to send home to a young son.
Here is a pic of the Football Birdie set, showing some of the images and sentiments

Go, Go, Go Seahawks !!!!
