mini sports blog hop!

Hello! Today I am doing a really fun mini sports blog hop! We are all picking our favorite football team and making a card inspired by the logo! You should have come from Lynnette's blog! My favorite NFL team is the Miami Dolphins. I grew up in Miami and even had a Dan Marino doll as a kid! Haha!

This my Dolphins card! I, of course, had to use the dolphin from Critters in the Sea! I created some free hand cut waves from Core'dinations paper and sanded it some. I used Hats Off To You for the sentiment, and Partly Cloudy for the clouds and sun! I love how much our sun looks like the Dolphins logo. That wasn't even planned at all! Erica drew that, and I am pretty sure she has never seen the Dolphins logo! It must have been fate! :)

I used foam dimesion in a fun way on the dolphin. I put glue dots on his nose and tail and foam adhesive in the middle. He really looks like he is diving into the waves this way!

Your next stop on the blog hop is Brandi! Make sure to head on over to her blog to see all of the fun inspiration! :)

This is an extra little quick card that I made from a scrap and only stuff I had on my desk! I thought that would be a fun challenge! I had originally thought my card above would be standard sized but instead I made it into a 4.25" square, and I was left with this little strip. I sprayed it with a spray mist! I couldn't believe it because I am kind of scared of them. I did it in my sink and then smeared it around on the card. I love how soft it looks! I made the flower with fabric paper and my new favorite Sizzix 3D flower die. I love that thing! It had been sitting on my desk for a while! The swirl is from Petite Florals. Lawn Fawn sets always litter my desk top! Hehe! :)

I hope you all had great weekends! We are gearing up for Thanksgiving here and the new Lawn Fawn release! Posts start on Saturday the 28th for the December release! Woooo! :)

Make sure to head to Brandi's blog next if you are hopping along the sports blog hop! :)
