Good Luck Penn State!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Yea! It's hump day!  Row, Row, Row your boat! Let me tell ya, we have been getting constant heavy rain for 3 days now. Pretty soon we will be rowing down the streets. Sure wish we could ship it to Texas and other states that are in a major drought with wild fires. Gosh, can't the weather just even out for a bit and give everyone some relief?

All the schools went back in session including the colleges this week! Sad for it means the end of summer, but it is also the beginning of football season!! Yeah Steelers and Penn State!  Can you tell I'm a PA girl? At my husbands work they have interns for the summer.  One is a young man returning back to Penn State College and is a player on the great Nittany Lions Soccer Team! They ordered a "good luck" card for him.  Oh yea, I would be happy to make him one!  I love Penn State!!

My card was created using  Elizabeth O'Dulemba's , "Back To School"  image.  Are you familiar with her work? Elizabeth is an award winning author/illustrator who creates awesome images and even better yet...she sharess them for free. Each Tuesday she releases a new creation and you can see all of them here.

Copics: Apple R37, R35, R32. Green: G28, G24, G21. E37, E35, E31 (I think) Y35, Y28, Y15, Y11.
Penn State emblem: I copy and pasted one from the internet and printed it out on Gina K 180 lb card stock.
Paper: SEI, I'm An Athlete

TIP OF THE DAY: Making flower soft or fluffy snow.  Take two Styrofoam balls and rub them together. You will create a friction and will create tiny little flakes and perfect just like it is for snow.  By placing the shavings into a plastic bag or placing them on a dish, add a few drops of re-inkers, food coloring and mix thoroughly till you have your desire color. Let dry to air. Flower soft or other fluff can be up to $7.00 per jar. A bag of Styrofoam balls $1.00, which will make you as much as you want! Easy peasy and they look almost identical!
