All That Scraps Challenge ~ New Year’s Ideas (Rose Bowl!)

Rose Bowl Princess!


Welcome back!   I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!    I, personally, am relieved it’s over!   It just gets a bit overwhelming trying to juggle it all during this crazy season.   I’m really looking forward to getting “back to normal” — whatever that is!    

Our challenge today at All That Scraps is New Year’s Ideas –  party stuff, favors, decorations, etc.   

Soooooooooooo, did you know that our UW-Madison Badger football team is in the Rose Bowl this year??!!   



 And, since the Rose Bowl is held on New Year’s Day, I thought this would be a PERFECT New Year’s idea!



Go Badgers!!     They are the predicted underdog, but all the excitement leading up to the game has certainly brought our college town to life.     I’ve used Rose Emma from the C.C. Designs Take a Seat collection for this, along with lots of paper roses on top of a Spellbinders beaded circle die cut.    The sentiments are computer generated and I found this team mascot Bucky Badger on the internet!



I did do another project for our New Year’s Ideas challenge – unfortunately, I made the numbers a bit too large for the little C.C.Designs Sugarplums party guys ~  Balloon Trevor & Emma, and Party Emma, so I wasn’t too happy with how this one turned out.    



Here are some quick closeups of these cuties:




I hope you have a minute to pop over to the All That Scraps Challenge blog to take a peek at the always inspiring projects from the design team ladies.      Thanks for stopping in today!

    1. Oh Mary, this is all the paper roses around her, and once again you thought outside the box using the Rose Bowl as your inspiration. The banner turned out well, you should be happy with it..anything your hands touch creatively turns out magnificently…


    2. Wowzers – this is so much fun! Beautiful card, Mary! Love it! And that banner just makes me happy!!! Beautiful work, as always!

    3. That card is simply stunning with all those flowers encircling the image.

    4. I love your projects. How cute is that Rose Bowl card!!! Just darling! And that banner is AMAZING!!!!!

    5. LOVE THIS! (Though I must say, I’d love it even more with a Buckeye, rather than a Badger).
      No way are you underdogs in this….Big 10 all the way!

      Gorgeous, gorgeous card!

    6. I love both of your projects. Your coloring skills are phenominal!

    7. Hi Mary!
      How are you doing? I feel the very same about Christmas!
      I am sorry you feel your pennant is too large – but gosh the paper is so pretty and of course your colouring is perfect!!
      LOVE your card. What a great idea! You do the most fabulous things with your computer. Imagine finding the Mascot and putting him on your card! So CUTE. LOVE your papers on this one and all of the roses surrounding her are super. Beautiful job and so appropriate and sweet.
      Happy New Year – hugs, Candy

    8. I love both of your projects. Your coloring skills are phenominal! 0 brb

    9. HEY DER GIRL!
      What a fun card! Love all the roses, now let’s see one for my DUCKS!

    10. Happy New Year, Mary…I resolve to do more with my blog in 2011…thank you! Ms Emma is darling and how you get the the computer generation to be just sooo…I guess it’s lots of practice. Emma looks sooo innocent to boot! An absolutely Fab card!! And by the way your pennant friend are adorable…thanks for the closeups!

    11. What a fantastic idea for a New Years card – and it is so beautiful! :-)Traci

    12. Being from Madison I just LOVE your card! Go BADGERS!!!

    13. What an awesome card…it’s a shame the Badgers luck ran out. Now, this is going to be difficult…we root for the Badgers, but live in Texas. Oh boy…better not wear red for a while. It’s a great card…just wish we would have won!!!

    14. Piece of writing writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with then you can
      write otherwise it is complex to write.
