What would Tuesday be w/o a teaparty? And a teaparty coming to my house! I thank you all in advance for joining in on making TPT cards for my hubby. He does not know, so this will be a BIG surprise. He's making some progress but we will know more after Thursday's dr appt.
Now for my card... I covered just about all his favs. He is/was a HS football official, he was the umpire, so there's a U on his hat, which I colored in our local HS color of maroon (Bravo Burgundy). He's wearing Clemson U orange & purple and his OH-IO belt. He even has a brown tackle bag to go along w/ the orange for our son's HS colors (he's a teacher).
Now Ralph from Rubbernecker has a frown on his face b/c Jeremiah Jumbaleigh (JJ) was a close miss. It seems to be the only striped fish around, but what's that checked one jumping into his waders?
This is mounted on some 'zebra' striped paper (b/c refs are also known as zebras). You can also see his yellow penalty flag hanging out his back pocket. So I think I about coverd it!!
Speaking of zebras, when Chip first started as a fb official, he did a lot of Sat afternoon games & actually had a striped tan on his back!!
I colored my image w/ WCW crayons & blender pens, did some sponging for the sky & water. I found one of my 3 white gel pens that works & added some ripples in the water.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

This is fabulous, Karen! You sure covered all the bases with this fun card! Of course, you had some inside information!!! Hope Chip enjoys all the cards and that his recovery goes as quickly and smoothly as possible!

This looks to me like you have everything covered, and quite well, I do say!! I love the checked fish jumping into the waders, now that's a wet tickle for sure! Your Dh is going to think he's a celebrity
