Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Challenge! This week we're calling it Animal Antics
and I can't wait to see what fills up our gallery!!
I LOVE the Simon Says Stamp Store! If you haven't already, take some time and go see all the brands that they offer! There are things there that I never knew existed, among them this adorable Teddy named Popcorn from Crafter's Companion in the UK, and you can get him doing all kinds of fun things. Back in the dark ages, I collected Teddy Bears and still have them all over my house. When I saw the Football Crazy set, I screeched to a halt and put him in my shopping cart!
Here in NE Ohio we have a very active youth soccer organization; when our boys were young, they started at about age 4 or 5, and our youngest son stuck with soccer all the way up through the high school team. He was on a travelling team by then, and we have wonderful memories of the kids and their parents during those years. Now he has a little boy of his own who has started soccer already! But I digress......
I paper pieced my Teddy, dressing this little guy in the colors of one of my son's teams, blue and yellow. I should have put a number 14 on this shirt, but his tummy was too round :)) Here's my card:
I used the Football Crazy set for everything except the sun, which came from a Hero Arts set, Be Happy. The cloud paper is from Echo Park's Hello Summer
