Falling into the season.....

Hello all!
         Friday once more and that means another challenge over at The Outlawz with the Copics/Promarkers group.  As it is also the start of a new month of challenges, we have a new sponsor and for October we are being sponsored by the fabulous Make it Crafty with a great prize of an amazing e-book "Colouring Techniques with Markers"!!  Makes me wish I could enter it too!!

       Anyway the theme for the challenge this week is 'Fall Activities" - now this doesn't mean you are limited to Fall colours, even though a lot of the activities during Fall do seem to involve leaves, apples and pumpkins.  I managed to avoid all the usual colour suspects and went for the sport angle!  Although I am not a football fan myself, I understand that it can play quite a big part in the lives of some folks...........am I right?   I may not follow it but you can't escape it completely!!!

                                  I used a digi from Dude Time Doodles and 'mis-used' a sentiment that we normally associate with the Christmas season.  Kept it simple as it is a dude card after all!

 
I would like to put this in for the challenges at -
 

 
Thanks for stopping by  - I'm off to enjoy some of the 80 degree sunshine we're supposed to get today! It's a one day only deal so need to make the most of it :)

Dawn, LOL..I love your take on Fall. The combination of a masculine, sport and Christmas song is superbly twisted!! :D You really hit it out of the ballpark with creativity here. Your coloring is wonderful and I've enjoyed admiring your card very much. Super job and very inventive way to interpret the Autumn season.
Thank you so much for joining our challenge and sharing your wonderful talent with us at Dutch Dare.

Here in Wisconsin this is not just a guys thing to do all the gals watch football also. So that is just a totally awesome card and if it was in green and gold you could send it to me anytime. That sentiment is right.
Hugs, Patricia
