School, Sports, Spirit! Hop with Gina K. Designs


 sss hop2
It’s time for a Gina K. Designs blog hop using Melanie’s new School, Sports, Spirit! set so in the spirit of our great nation, I have 2 cards in the Red, White & Blue theme to share!  My first card I made to look like a bulletin board and locker of the MVP of the school football team (shoot, I forgot the MVP sentiment, oh well).  The bulletin board (cork) is something I found clearing out the garage a few weeks ago and I figured I would use it on a card.  This card was fun to make – I combine a few images from Sporty Accessories too (football, pennant, shoes, lockers). 

For my next card, I made it a U.S. Olympic skater card and combined  the set with Little Tees & Tee Talksss hop as well as Stars & Stripes digital papers (Freebie at STV), in which I mimicked a U.S. flag (definitely NOT to scale-ha) but I think the concept is a fun one and not one I had originally planned – it just worked out that way. 

There are a ton of designers participating in this hop, so be sure to check them all out!  Especially Melanie’s since she is giving away one of her sets in a random drawing!

First check out Melissa Shultz, Melanie’s guest designer this month who has really been ROCKIN’ this set!   She has also asked a few STV friends to join us: Sharri & Mary Anne

The following design team members have cards to share:

Gina Krupsky
Carolyn King
Erika Martin
Jessica Fick
Lee Murphy
Theresa Momber

and last, but certainly not least since these ladies have stepped up to the plate with their wonderful creations this month, our CenterStage Spotlight members Geri Utterback & Tina Gilliland

I love the cork on the card! What a terrific idea. Too bad we can't make cards like your second one to raise money for our olympic athletes. Great job! ~ky

Awesome idea of the bulletin board, Donna! It's great with the lockers added alongside! That red hoodie makes cooler weather look like it's just around the corner! Both are very cool cards!

The cork was such a great idea! Your red white and blue would be an encouragement to anyone. (the tennis shoes made me giggle - they are so appropriate for a locker!)
