Happy Tuesday to ya!  I have been on a card making roll, lol.  Anytime I can get more than 2 days a week in my scrap room is a good thing.  Today's card is a male themed card.  I know alot of people dread the male card but I actually kind of enjoy them.  Todays card is representive of a typical Sunday in our house- at least during football season, haha.  I am playing along with a couple of challenges and the sketch is this weeks Midnight Madness sketch.  Their sketches can be a real challenge but I am pretty happy with my outcome-especially since I am using the sneak peak so no inspiration (stealing) from the design team this week!
Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my card:

 So what do ya think? Does it somewhat resemble a football field?  I asked Jordan (my 7 yr old and the only one in the house in the evenings) if he knew what it was and he said "nope".  That was before I added the numbers for the yard lines- his idea, then it became pretty good to him, lol.  My very fun image is from Phindy's Place and is called Mr. Brown Goes Surfing, lmbo! I just love this image.

Supplies used:
Card stock Stampin Up, Bazzil, B&W dp by Best Creation Inc., bottle cap, computer generated sentiment.
referree shirt was found on a website that sells them, sized picture, printed on cardstock & cut out, brads w/ribbon, white gel pen.

Ok now for a few challenges:
Midnight Madness - Sketch
All Sorts of Challenge - Just For Men
A Spoon Full of Sugar- recycled, I think my bottle cap covers that one

See you back here tomorrow- I'll have 2 cards for you for the Moxie Fab World challenge.

Gosh, how did you get that picture of my husband onto your card? :) I agree with Carol that is my house in the football season! Your image is colored beautifully. I just love your take on the sketch challenge with such a wonderfully whimsical masculine card!
