It's Super Bowl Sunday and of course in our house we are all rooting for the Packers.   At the HAMBO HOEDOWN, I picked myself up the free digi image and created a PACKER BACKER support card.  My daughter has reached a weight loss of 65 lb. thru Weight Watchers and this card gave me the perfect opportunity to show her our support.  You can see all the little Packer bears lifting her up on their helmets - well, there is always one difficult child in every bunch, right?  But note the M.V.P. comment and the scoreboard - Home team 65 - Visitor 0.  Get it???

 HOW TOS:  I created a 6x6 card with black cs and mounted true Packer green and gold atop it.  I fussy cut the images and restacked them on scrap paper to get the feel.  I laid magic mesh over distressed gold to look more football like.  I also distressed the magic mesh and even removed it about 1/2 way up the card to get the feeling of something else going on in the background.  Then I attached our little football bears and Shelly!

My copic colors used were: E00; E37; E35; Y11; Y15; Y13; G000; G07; G14; YR00.  There is some blending going on with the colorless blender as well.

The interior of the card has an appropriate meaning for my daughter.  She only has 15 to go and I plan on being in the members area the day she receives her lifetime goal pin!

That's all - such a sweet smile too!
 An afghan I crocheted for Shell's birthday!
 And she had her cake and ate a slice too!
