The Paper Players is getting sketchy

I'm back from my Vegas get away and had a great time.  It was a neat place to visit and I'm glad I went.  I came home with $12 in my pocket from playing the penny slots.  The casino actually gave me $10 so my winnings were only $2 ... it went up and down.  When it was up, I quit and cashed out my ticket ... lol.    Terry had business out there and took me along for the ride since we are without children at home now.  

Today's card is for The Paper Players sketch this week.  Once again, I needed a masculine card to send to Michael.  One of Auburn's mascots is the eagle so I thought this stamp was perfect for him.   Of course, I had to use the school colors too ...  minus the brown.  Hope he doesn't mind the polka dots. 

This was the starting point ...  

and this was the end result from my inky fingers ...

Stamps:  In Wilderness
Paper:  Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Vanilla
DSP:  Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie
Ink:  Staz-on Timber Brown, Bashful Blue
Accessories:  Prismacolor Markers, Signo white gel pen, Nestabilities octagon dies, label punch, word window punch, Night of Navy brads, Pumpkin Pie ribbon
All products are SU! unless otherwise noted.

War Eagle was computer generated and punched out.  

I hope my fellow stampers along the east coast are safe and did  not encounter too much damage from Irene.

Have a great day,
Pam~
