LRW #705 – Rugby/American Football Christmas Card

Lovely Kate's our hostess this week at Little Red Wagon and she's asking us to Play the Game! She'd like to see any game or sport featured on our projects. Click on over to see what the other girlfriends have designed this week and link up your own game/sport creations.

As you can see, I've made a Christmas card, but tell me...what sport do you this athletic snowman is playing? Rugby? American football? I tend to lean toward rugby, but I figure it will serve for either/or. The digi is from QKR Stampede. If you search the blog you'll see I use a lot of their digistamps (e.g. this hilarious sunbathing potato card); they're amongst my favorites. You can imagine then, the shock I had tonight upon discovering (as I tried to find a link to this digi) that Stamp On It (where QKR digis are sold) appear to have done away with all their stamps, both digital and rubber. What a shame.

I wish I could take credit for this clever card design, but alas, no, it's based on this design by Nancy Thomas at Creative Palette. The square portion opens up and away from the striped section, which is next to the inside sentiment. I have to admit, I quite like the way it turned out. Paper is Craft Sensations Basic Style Christmas Design pad. The sentiment font is Mikie's Christmas. Red pearls dress it up.

  2. Aaaahh, I love your football playing snowman Shani, awesome colouring, love his expression, and fabulous card..

    Luv CHRISSYxx

  3. So fun! Such a happy snowman. Perfect papers too! Not sure if it's a helmet for football or helmets generally have facemasks though so.... (:

    What a cute football playing snowman! Great card.

  5. This is so fun. My vote is for rugby. Your snowman looks so happy and the sentiment is just perfect with the image!

  6. It doesnʻt really matter what heʻs playing, youʻve made sure he is the star of the game. Darling card, Shani! I took a look at the sunbathing potato and had a laugh out-loud. I have a fair number of QKR digis as they sponsored one of the DTs Iʻm on...wonder what will happen there.
