Are You Ready for Some Football!?!

I made this card to torment a relative of mine who loves to torment me about loving the Dallas Cowboys. I'll tell you... of recent years... I've questioned that love... but to NOT cheer them on would feel so unnatural! I've loved them since the late 70s... and that IS the 1970s... :\ The other day, I told someone about an event that happened in '86 and he ACTUALLY turned to me with a quizzical look on his face and asked, "1986?" :\ Ummmm... yeah... I hadn't been born in 1886... really? Do I look like I was? Geez... anyway... off the subject... to NOT love the Dallas Cowboys would just feel so unnatural and as if I'd cut off a limb. Kinda like giving a child up for adoption... it would be too hard to do and unimaginable! :\
Ssooo... anyway... I colored this image in the DC colors and sent it to a relative of mine with a loving message and I plan to pop on over tomorrow and to pay a surprise visit and see if the card is prominently displayed in the home... hmm, hmmm! Yes, I do! :) lol
Here's my card, by the way before I show you this card, I plan to enter it into a back to school challenge because... football coincides with back to school. Here in Texas, school IS football. OK? Friday nights... at the games... cheering on the players... who are treated as small town celebrities... because... FOOTBALL is KING in TEXAS! Ever seen Friday Night Lights? Well... yup... it's kinda like that... ssooo...
Here's the front view, open:

  2. I love being inspired by cards that are appropriate for males. I often struggle with creating boy cards. You did a wonderful job here.
