Blog Hop for School, Sports, Spirit!

Hi everyone! I'm so happy to be included in the showing of Melanie's new set "SCHOOL, SPORTS, SPIRIT! This wonderful set has lots of images and is a great companion to"Sporty Accessories" Which is what I did here in my cards.
In the top card I wanted a football theme so I used the jacket, bag and shoes from School, Sports, Spirit! The football is from Sporty Accessories. Now with the jacket I stamped on a old pair of jeans, cut it out and went around the edges with Fray Check. I added some light blue for shading and then some self adhesive silver brads. The bag after I colored it, I made openings for the shoes.
DP is from Gina K.
All card stock is from Gina K.

The bottom card here is made using the same two sets . The skates and saying is from " School, Sports, Spirit"! The rest are from " Sporty Accessories" I knew as soon as I saw this set I wanted to make something with those skates. Now if I can find those pictures I have of us trying to ice skate!! I will make a scrapbook page. Gina is have a challenge over at Stamp TV to make a card and a page using the same stamp set. I'm halfway there. LOL
