AND, It's an exciting one that is hosted by our super sweet, challenging DT Member STACY Morgan, of TWINSHAPPYStacy is a BIG FAN of FOOTBALL, so she wants to see us creating projects with the USA GREEN BAY PACKERS Football TEAM in mind. Yeap, that's right!  That's her Twin Boy's Favorite Football Team. So, A FOOTBALL FRENZY theme it is!!!!  Can ya believe it???  Dont be frazzled 'cuz it doesnt just have to just be a FOOTBALL themed card. It can also be one that is inspired by your FAVORITE Football Team's COLORS.  Like the Green Bay Packer's Colors, that are Green & Yellow.
So there are many, many possibilities here.  
Here's what Stacy said about this challenge:
***This House Mouse and Friends Blog Challenge 96 is brought to you by ME. Of the 5 people who read my blog (ha ha) you know that I am a huge football fan! The football season is one of the funnest in our house with all our teams we each love. So when my turn came up for a challenge it was no doubt going to be something football related in honor of the Green Bay Packers winning this years Super Bowl. My team is the Colts as you know, however my good friend America here is a huge Chicago Bears fan. So this challenge was a little inspired to razz her in the loss they took against the Green Bay Packers one of the twins favorite team. You know I love ya girlie!
The challenge is Football Frenzy... something football or super bowl inspired. Use a team's colors, the field or players. Have fun with it! 

Check out our Designers takes;

I am chuckling so loudly (to myself). It's obvious that you have many samples from folks who are not USers. Maybe you should have put a disclaimer (no soccer pics allowed) :)

Lori Barnett said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE ALL the samples!!!!! WOW!!! At first I thought "this is gonna be HARD!" -- but then I's how "I" interpret it. So...since I am not a sports nut...I had to look up what sport it was! LOL! Then...the light went on..."go with the team colors" THAT House Mouse Friends should be easy to do. Now get out those stamps and start creating! :)

Nancy said...

Ooops, On entry # 12, I forgot to put GTD behind my "NanaConnie" when I posted my card. I can't figure out how to go back and change that so can this comment serve as my GTD? Thanks. :-)

Thanks, Stacy, for such a fun challenge. Now up here in Canada folks aren't huge football fans as they are hockey, but as I'm an American living in Canada I went with my GREEN BAY PACKERS colors, just like you did! This was a lot of fun and all of the cards are fantabulous!
