Fall is in the air...



This has nothing to do with my next card, but I wanted to share what an awesome weekend this past weekend was. I am an AVID sports fan. I LOVE Football and am a Die Hard Florida Gator and Tampa Bay Buccaneer Fan. I watch and go to football games more than I do baseball, but I've been avidly following the Tampa Bay Rays this year since they are doing so well.

This weekend, all of my teams just kicked some booty! The Gators rolled over the LSU Tigers who are the defending National Champs. The Rays are in the ALCS and we're hoping to make it to the World Series. The Buccaneers beat the Carolina Panthers yesterday in an whooping they hadn't received in our home town in several meetings. It was a great sports weekend! My dad, mom and I had so much fun cheering on our teams!

Anywhoo.. Go Gators, Rays and Bucs!!

Now on to my next Card..

I love Fall and wish that we had more of this beautiful season here in Florida. I colored Tilda with copic markers and sponged distress ink around the image after I cut it out with my Nesties. I mounted the image on pop-dots to give it some dimension and the DP is from Basic Grey.
