I made this card last week (or I guess I could say "last year") prior to the December 31 Fiesta Bowl. Having been a stamper that has actually been to three past Fiesta Bowls, I have acquired some southwestern stamps during my visits to Arizona. This one is from Taylored Artwork. I stamped it onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth with Versafine Onyx Black and colored with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp. I thought it was a cute pairing. As I made this card prior to the game, I was just playing with vibrant colors, my pencils and trying to capture the warmth of the desert.
And then, there was the game. And I got into a funk because of it. And I'm just now posting this card. I still like it because there have been some good times in the desert too. I'll just hold onto those memories.
And, brace yourselves...I'm cheering for 'Bama on Monday. I have my reasons. I'm guessing Curtis Samuel will be cheering for Alabama too. Roll Tide. (Never, ever would I have dreamed I'd be saying that!)
