An Expensive Football

Is your husband hard to buy for??  Mine is!  But he loves football, and especially his Green Bay Packers, so this year I decided to go "all out" and get him a football autographed by the Packers quarterback and Super Bowl MVP, Aaron Rodgers.... well, sorta!  A card was as close as I could get!  I used the adorable Cocoa Loves Football digi from Sweet n Sassy stamps (Did you know Sweet n Sassy now has a forum???  There's challenges and all sorts of stuff.  You have to stop by!!).  I colored Cocoa with copics and added the signature with a white gel pen.  The inside reads... "Here's an autographed Aaron Rodgers football " and then I stamped "...For the man I love".  I kept the card really simple, with no embellishments, cuz I know my dh wouldn't care if they were there or not! LOL!!

I get to enter this in all sorts of challenges this week.  It seems everyone is looking for masculine or Father's Day cards!! :-)
