Give me an H...H

This enthusiastic Amy Young image, Betsy,  a Sweet November gal from CC Designs reminds me of my cheerleading days! OK- my legs were NEVER that thin...but our skirts were pretty short! LOL  Give me an H... H!  Give me an E...E... you are cheering along, aren't you?

This cutie had sparklers in her hands but I wanted her to be less seasonal (the sparklers were adorable but seemed to scream 4th of July to me)- so I fussy cut Besty and left off the sparklers. I think she will make a great hero card! Oh- and the card is for this week's throwdown at OWH- use red, white, blue and kraft! Color challenges sometimes stump me- but I love this combo! And how come when I colored her I thought all that fluff was hair- but now I see that part of each ponytail is a scrunchie??? I wonder if I can fix it with paper piecing?

OK- are you ready for some more bragging??? I know you are all just chomping at the bit to know....yes- Tessa and the Sun Devils won the championship game! Yahooooo! She pitched and struck out 11 batters! She caught 2 pop ups and fielded a grounder for an out to first base-- are you counting? She played a role in 14 out of 18 outs in the 6 inning game! It was a fun and exciting season. Her mom- my darling baby sister- and I are going to make an album of the season for her coach..some games were so exciting I forgot to take pictures but I think I have plenty to make a nice scrapbook of all the girls. Her coach is the type of guy who will really appreciate it and we want him to remember this team forever!
Have a wonderful and safe Independence Day!
Craft on,


  1. She looks cute with or without sparklers and/or scrunchies in her ponytails! Such a cute and sweet card:) Happy Independence day!

  2. Very sweet! I wouldn't have known that wasn't all her hair! So cute.

  3. Go Tessa! that is so exciting! Love your card also - great way to start the 4th of July! Hope you have a wonderful day!

  4. What a great card, I love the banner and it is such a fun way to participate in the OWH color unique. Congrats on Tessa's outstanding win...I am sure that her coach will love a scrapbook of all the memories...coaches never have photos from their seasons so it'll be a great way to remember a victorious one. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Fabulous card! This is so fun and I think her hair is wonderful as is! Congrats to Tessa!!
