I can't believe I did this...

Happy Monday! But first thing is first... I have to correct myself as my DH has so loving laughed his little heart out. I.... Stacy... made a mistake on how many years we have been married. Yep I had said 11 years and it has been 12 years. Oh my goodness, you have no idea the laugh he got at MY mistake. And then on my blog non the less. I have corrected my post as not to confuse my children later in life. ha ha Now you know he will never let me live this down and the whole family got to hear about it also. To my defense I thought it sounded odd but I didn't think twice about it since I never get it wrong. ha ha Oh well, you all get a good laugh at this. :0)

This House Mouse and Friends Blog Challenge 96 is brought to you by ME. Of the 5 people who read my blog (ha ha) you know that I am a huge football fan! The football season is one of the funnest in our house with all our teams we each love. So when my turn came up for a challenge it was no doubt going to be something football related in honor of the Green Bay Packers winning this years Super Bowl. My team is the Colts as you know, however my good friend America here is a huge Chicago Bears fan. So this challenge was a little inspired to razz her in the loss they took against the Green Bay Packers one of the twins favorite team. You know I love ya girlie!
The challenge is Football Frenzy... something football or super bowl inspired. Use a teams colors, the field or players. Have fun with it! This weeks Sponsor is Di's Digi Downloads with a prize of 3 Digis.

I went with the Green Bay Packers colors for my creation. This is a new House Mouse that I got last month called Citrus Punch. I love the sour looks on their faces. hee hee The shine didn't show up very well in the photo, however each of the cut slices has liquid glass on them for the wet look. I had so much fun with this challenge. I hope you can play along with us! Have a wonderful day.

Super cute card! I am a GB fan and love the use of the team's colors for your card. And to get our anniversary years right, I have to think how old the oldest child is and add two years to it. Remembering the kids ages is a challenge too!

Kerri said...

Hey, isn't it usually the guy who makes that mistake? Tee hee! Yup, you'll never live it down! Stacy, I'm so glad I stopped by here today because your card is so unbelievably CUTE and it has given me such a happy moment. Love the citrus fruit with these guys. Adorable, and your coloring is fabulous!

Don't feel bad, Stacy. I forgot about our anniversary altogether once. I felt terrible as my hubby handed me a bouquet of flowers! lol He LOVED it though. Figures it will give him a free pass sometime if he needs it.
And the card.. oh my it is WONDERFUL. I so love the HM images. So sweet. And those colors.. my Richland Bombers' colors! hehe

Funny reading about your blooper! :)

Jennifer said...

Oh this is gooooooooooooood!! :-) What a fun theme to play the challenge with. As always, your coloring knocks my socks off! The lemons and limes look like they are totally real!

OK, I admit, I giggled at your mistake. But it's too funny that you forgot and he remembered how many years. In my household I'm lucky if the mister even remembers the day!

America said...

Who said this was a FUN challenge?? It was NOT!!! It was tough for to swallow having to use GBP's colors that are Green and Yellow... uuughh, I should have soooo used Blue and Orange!!! LOL!!!! heheh.
I love your beautifully colored HM&F card. A great take on your football frenzy challenge. I totally thought you were going to use that football image, but you fooled me!! heheh! This is fantastic Stacy! I love it! I cant wait until my turn to call the next (get Stacy back) challenge.... just wait and see.... heheh!!
