Turkey Bowl

Happy Friday!!!  I'm so happy the weekend is upon us.  Earlier this week I checked out  Die Cuttin' Diva's and found this awesome challenge, It's Football Season! Let's make a project using a football theme.  I was so excited and had a million ideas floating in my head.  First I needed to finish up an Etsy order and then I could get to work on this challenge.  My husband is a HUGE football fan.  On Sunday mornings he plays football with a group of local guys, then comes home watches the pre-game show then its JETS and GIANTS games.  Daddy is not to be disturbed, good luck with that!

For the past 10 years my dear hubby has organized a football game on Thanksgiving morning.  It's become a fun and memorable tradition among the guys.  They call it Turkey Bowl and it's something he begins preparing for in late September.  He steps up the work-out routine and begins to recruit all the guys.  It's something he loves and looks forward to all year.  So I thought it would be cute to make him a special card for the day.  Here is what I came up with
My little Turkey Bowl.  He even has a football helmet.  I love it and can't wait to give it to him.
