Go Gamecocks!

The ever-so-talented Kecia is hostessing the Sassy Cheryl Challenge this week and being a school teacher (God Bless Her) she wanted to see some school images. My children are all grown and even my Grandchildren are in high school or college. The biggest thing about back to school here is football games.  Both of my children and my precious SIL graduated from the University of South Carolina so it's Garnet and Black all the way.  My granddaughter cheers for her high school so I will have to do a blue and white card, but that will be a later post.  

Cheryl gave the design team a sneak peek at this little darling before she it was finished with it.  I don't think she will ever do that again.  We wouldn't stop bugging her to finish it.  You know how artists are, you just can't rush them and we did try!  She call this Put On Your Game Face Sally.  Isn't she adorable?  Just click here if you would like to color her up in you favorite team colors.  I am going to use her on a scrapbook page too.  I am envisioning her in the lower left corner with rolling footballs up and across the page.  I think I will be making several cards with her too.  Navy and Gold for Notre Dame, Red and Gold for the Redskins, both for my football coach brother.  A most beautiful Green and Yellow for my beloved Green Bay Packers.  I think I will just print out a page or two of them and start coloring.  Then they will be ready when I need them. 

My card is a side step card and I gave you three views of it.  The black dp is from Hobby Lobby and I have had it for years.  The other embellishments were cut from a Graphic 45 paper.  Easy peasy and fun fun fun.  That's they way I like them!

What does back to school mean to you?  Grab yourself a Cheryl Alger digi or stamp and show us your ideas.  Please remember to qualify for the prize you must use a Cheryl Alger image, but it can be purchased form anywhere.  It does not have to come from Sassy Cheryl's store.  We would love to see you join us, so click here and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you.

Have a great week and happy crafting!
