Did he just say, "Bring It?"....

Yeah, I think he did just say that...
He's a spunky one!
Bring It!
Have you heard the word on the blog "streets" yet?
No, it's not The Bird Is The Word.
It goes something like this...
Gimme an S..."S", Gimme a Q..."Q", Gimme a....
Oh, I can't wait that long,
It's called...
A bran-spanking new Challenge Blog and
I have the great fortune of being a part of their fabulous DT group.
Check Out This Cute and Furry Banner...
They've already run their first challenge,
 but you have PLENTY of time to get in their
 SECOND challenge.
Here it is...
# 2 - Make It Sporty!!
To be honest, this challenge freaked me out a bit because I have zero "sport" stamps.
So, I took liberties on this one and went in my warped direction of humor and made Gramps here with his pimped out tricked out walker and added a little Nascar logo to authenticate the sports theme.

Nascar Logo of Authenticity

He's goin' up hill both ways,
 in snow...
This adorable image is called Albert 
from All Glued Up and he was such a hoot to color!
I've added Crystal Effects to the jacket, lights and horns for shimmer and tried to stick to the basic Nascar colors.

*As per Helena's request at All Glued Up,
 this card with Albert's image is only for inspiration 
and will not be used to enter into challenges.*

So, that's the scoop!
New challenge blog, new inspiration, new DT's and 
a wonderful time at
The Squirrel & The Fox!
If you have a minute, pop on over and give them a huge blog welcome!

Thanks SO much for stopping in and happy stamping!

I've seen this image and think he's a hoot, but can't find him. The link you left took me some place where I couldn't find it. Could you check again? Think I would like to get him I love your "thinking outside the box" on the sports challenge. May be my old Gus would qualify to. PS...I never realized the paper I chose looked like tire thread, but you are absolutely right. You rally have a keen I and for thinking outside the box.

Thank you for mentioning this to me. I've corrected the link now and attached it to his highlighted name. Sorry for the confusion. :D

Thank you for my first laugh of the day! This reminds me of my Dad when he's on his scooter...LOOK OUT! I love how you made this work for a sport! After all, Gramps is looking pretty 'sporty'! Love the highlighted areas too!
Thanks for giving me yet another challenge blog to stalk!

Lisa, I think this creation is amazing and fits perfectly with the 'sporty' theme. Your post is wonderful and I am so thrilled you have joined us as part of the DT for The Squirrel & The Fox. I am really looking forward to working with you.
