Operation Write Home “Card Bowl 2014” Challenge – Super Bowl Weekend




Okay, how much fun does this sound!  Operation Write Home is having a 3 day card challenge this weekend called CARD BOWL!

Here is  how it works (from operationwritehome.org):

Welcome to the 3-day Card Bowl Challenge! It’s Superbowl weekend, and we can’t let the men have all the fun, right?

Participate in challenges all three days by making a card and linking it up this weekend – and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a flat rate envelope filled with stampy goodness! Challenges can be completed anytime over the weekend – winners will be picked late Sunday night.

  1. Masculine Ode to the teams! Make a masculine card – for men, teens, or little boys – in any OWH-approved theme. And make your card somehow reflect either the Seahawks or Broncos. Use their colors, something about their city, their mascot – get creative! It doesn’t have to be a sports/football-related card. Inlinkz is below!
  2. Join in the ODBD challenge on this blog SATURDAY and make yours a masculine card. (Link up on that page.)
  3. Join in the Sunday Sketch challenge on this blog on SUNDAY and make yours a masculine card. (Link up on that page.)


And my card for # 1 is . . . (drum roll please!!!!!)



My own little version of Peyton Manning!

What I used:

* The Football Birdie digi stamp from my friends at Doodle Pantry!  I LOVE Doodle Pantry digi stamps, ADORABLE!  Visit them at doodlepantry.com

*  Football ribbon from Michael’s.  I love that Michael’s always has this great endcap of these great ribbons and they are only $1!!!!

*  A great football brad from one of my favorite brad places . . . Eyelet Outlet!  You have to check them out if you love using unique and creative brads.  Visit them at eyeletoutlet.com

*  The green football paper at the bottom is a digipaper that you get as part of the download with the Football Birdie digistamp at Doodle Pantry!  The sentiment as well as others also come with that download!!

* some simple blue, orange, and black cardstock

So much fun, I think I will have to make one now for the Seattle Seahawks!  After all . . . don’t want to show favoritism.  (For the record, I am a huge Packer fan, therefore there may be a green and gold one in my future 🙂

Happy creating,
