Three Cheers For You!!

The Cooking With Cricut challenge has a new name.  It is Crafting With Cutters.  So, the CWC not only has a new name, but a new challenge.  The challenge this week is to use your stash with the theme, ANYTHING GOES.  I made a card for my sweet daddy.  He will be 89 years old on November 10th, which happens to be the same day the United States Marine Corp will celebrate its 237th birthday.  Next to God and family, my daddy loves the US Marine Corp, and Alabama football.  My daddy served in the Marines during WWII.  Last year I made him a birthday card about the Marines and one celebrating Alabama football.  The Marine card is not complete yet this year.  But here is the BAMA football card.

Isn't this the happiest little elephant you've ever seen!  It is cut from the Birthday Bash cartridge.  I used a little gray ink on it.  The "A" was cut from the Stone Scrip cartridge.  

The Houndstooth paper I printed off the internet.  For those of you who do not know, for many years The late and great Coach Bear Bryant always wore a houndstooth hat to the games.  In memory of the Bear, the houndstooth lives on.  If you ever attend an Alabama football game, you will see almost as much houndstooth as you would Crimson and White.  the border of black paper was done with a Martha Stewart punch.  The bow is made with a piece of Christmas glittered wire ribbon from my stash.  Oh, and all the paper came from my stash.  

The Three Cheers sentiment is from Birthday Bash.  I know that it is a beer mug, but I think it also looks like a coffee mug.  My daddy always has a cup of coffee with him as he watches football.  So I thought this was a great addition to the card.  

My daddy is going to love this card!  The inside of the card says ROLL TIDE!  And my personal message is
 "You are just like the Alabama Football Team...
Number 1!!!"
Happy Birthday Daddy
