Pizza & Hockey Night!
You may not know that I am a huge hockey fan! I love the Washington Capitals! We've had season tickets for 2 years now, and I just love going to the games. They are so much fun. The Caps are having a fantastic season since we got a new coach in late November, and I really think they have a shot at the playoffs. There is a home game tonight but we gave our tickets away to some friends. The last 4 games were home games, and it is tough driving into the city (we live 9 miles away but it normally takes about 45 minutes to get there on a light traffic day) and it is expensive to park there. So we're going to order pizza and watch the game on TV tonight. Sometimes I enjoy it just as much as going to the games (with the DVR we can see the replays that we want to see)! Here is a card I made with the Lasting Impressions Pizza template. I wasn't quite sure what to do with this template. I decided to use the word "pizza" as the background of the card. I embossed it over and over, sanded, and then used a stipple brush to brush distress inks over it to give it a tan look. I didn't want the white core of the paper to show. Then I embossed the pizza slice and pieced it onto the card. I love how it turned out. Let's go Caps!!
