Brewin' Up Birthday Wishes {and State Champs!}


Hello friends and happy Monday.  I ordered my first Reverse Confetti stamps and was happy to get with inky with them yesterday. Amy and Erin have been enabling with all their coffee sets.  This is my second set, so I'm not quite in competition with them {yet}, but this is a super fun set. I had fun playing along with the current sketch challenge over at Reverse Confetti.

Before I leave, I wanted to share some local news. Our high school football team won the Ohio State Championship on Friday. Our boys don't play football, but the whole community is riding the high!  Loveland has never made it to a state championship game before this year. The last two games before the championship had amazing finishes. The second to last game they came back from being down 28 to 14 with five minutes left to win 38 to 28.  The last game they came back to tie the game with 17 seconds left and went into double overtime to win.  Needless to say, the community motto behind this team quickly became "We believe."  They have had amazing support from the community and their students. Seven charter buses full of students took the four hour drive to Canton, Ohio to watch them play.  This plus lots of parents/supporters made for a huge crowd in the stands. Way to go Loveland Tigers!

  1. Love your texty heart, Lynn! And so exciting to see the photos of your HS football celebration! Isn't it wonderful how that can bring together a whole community? We were lucky enough to see our HS football team at the state championship a couple weeks ago. Didn't have a happy ending like yours though ... in fact it was a pretty lopsided game. But still fun to be part of something like that!

  3. Love the mix of papers on your card! I haven't gotten any Reverse Confetti stamps, yet :)

    My hubby's high school FB team also won the state championships this weekend. He & my boys braved the cold to watch the game. It's so exciting isn't it?!

  6. Another great card, Lynn! I just love everything about this. The colors you've chosen are perfect. Warm, bright and fun. I can see I "need" to invest in some RC stamps too! Really love this. Oh, and congrats to your team! It's very exciting. Bev

  7. What a fabulous card Lynn, I still need to ink that set up. I love your interpretation of the sketch! I have been sick this past week and I just can't seem to get going so I can play too. Great photos and way to go Loveland!
