Happy Monday, everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend!! It was so beautiful and warm here...I can't believe it is the middle of March!! It's the third Monday in March, so that means it's time for a Paper Playtime Say It With Sentiments Challenge!! The theme this week is "For The Guys," and our sponsor is Crop Stop!
In honor of March Madness, which is HUGE in Indiana, I made a basketball card. I actually made this card BEFORE my beloved Alma Mater earned their way into the Sweet 16 (yay!!) I made it to give my Dad since he glues himself to the TV during the tourney :)
For this easel card, I used paper from Core'dinations and The Paper Studio. The background basketball and words were cut from the All Sports cart. Actually, it only cut the four panels of the basketball, the two on top and two on bottom. I added the rest of the orange to make it look like a full basketball.
I used the All Sports cart to cut the bball player at 4". He is wearing red and white in honor of my team, and I added a googly eye so he could keep his eye on the basket :)
I attached the basketball player with a handmade wobble so he is bobbing and weaving his way to the bucket. And speaking of the bucket...
I will admit that I am a craft horder...I keep anything that I think I might use in a project. I have a cabinet (or five!!) full of unusual items :) This is cut from a bag that held oranges. I thought it looked just like a net.
I embossed the orange paper with the Distressed Lines Embossing folder to make it look like a hardwood floor. The basketballs are from All Sports. "Have a ball" is from K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer set, as is...

I am entering this card in my sweet friend Karen's Little Scrap Pieces Happy Challenge. This card, and what it represents (my team...five time national champs making it back to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 10 years!!), definitely makes me happy!!
