Mini Sports Blog Hop

Hey there! Today is a super fun day because I'm participating in a mini blog hop with my sweet blog friends Brandi, Karen, Lynnette, and Kelly Marie!!! We are all HUGE sports fans and decided it would be fun to create a card/project inspired by our favorite sports teams! 

As most of you already know I grew up in Pittsburgh and as a result I absolutely LOVE the Pittsburgh Steelers!!! When the Steelers are playing, we break out our black and gold Terrible Towels and make a lot of noise (our poor cat hides under the bed)! Here's the Steelers' logo (from

And here's the card I made using the logo/team colors as inspiration:

I used some of the sets I won from the Schlosser Designs blog hop. YAY! I stamped my own background using one of the images from "Build a Border" (Schlosser Designs)---isn't it pretty much a perfect match to the designs on the Steelers logo? Love it!

They say "Yinzers" (AKA: people from Pittsburgh) bleed black and gold, and it's true! I don't know if there's a city more dedicated to their football team. And no matter where in the world we live now or in the future, we will always be Steeler fans!

Your next stop is Lynnette's fabulous blog, Netter's Notables!!! Hope you enjoy the hop!!!
