DIGI - Digi's With Attitude, that is!


This week's Digi's With Attitude Challenge is all about your Favorite Sports Team. Participants are asked to make a card for your favorite sports team or someone who loves sports.


Here's my card:

Do you recognize those team colors?

To be quite honest, we aren't the sportsy type in our family. The last time I watched a game was over 5 years ago, when my daughter was in High School. (I went to the home football games then - to see her perform with the band at halftime.) Soooooooooooo my favorite sports team is pretty non-existent. Therefore I had to make a tough choice when it came to creating a card for this challenge.
I decided to do what my daughter did when her school (she's a teacher) encouraged everyone to wear the colors of their favorite teams during Spirit Week... she wore her Virginia Tech sweatshirt. Now, I don't want to mislead you, so I must tell you that my daughter did not attend Virginia Tech. She attended Blue Mountain College in Mississippi. Are you confused yet? She has a Virginia Tech sweatshirt because that's where her cousin - my niece - attended college. Tragically, she was one of the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting, so when we see red/orange, we remember a lovely young woman who is loved and missed by those who love her. My card is made in Austin's memory/honor.

Your card turned out just great. I love the colors. I have some DP that is similar, if not the same. Will have to remember to pull that out to use! I am sorry about, Austin.
