We want to see anything sports related on your cards. Simple as that.
So if your struggling to find any ideas, please check out our fantastic DT creations below for some new found inspiration.

Steph: I used our sponsors Basketball dude image and coloured him in Promarkers. Seems I chose LA Lakers colours. Wasn't deliberate people, I just like them colours and thought I wondered if there was actually a team using them colours.
Anyway, the backing paper was by Jacqui at Poodles Poodles that she created herself. I just coloured it in. again with Promarkers.  I used purple card from my stash. Used Candi by Craftwork Cards to glam up the backing paper. The ribbon was plain white satin ribbon which I coloured with the same coloured Promarkers as I used for the team strip. I printed off the sentiment using a Converse font. and Voila!!

Josie: I found it hard which image to choose, because all the Kenny K digis are fantastic. So a friend chose a sport for me which was Hockey. I was pleased actually because this kind of reminded me of a phase I went through when I was about 12 I think! I saw the film Mighty Ducks and always wanted to do ice hockey after that! Never got to though :( lol. Anyway, I coloured with Pro Makers and backed with Pinflair dotted and gingham card. I wanted to give the illusion that she was standing on ice, so I coloured a section near her feet with clear Wink of Stella pen from Kuretake, and then covered with Glossy Accents. Its looks like shiny glittery ice!

Jacqui H: For this card I used a Kenny K digi of an american footballer, my hubby's favourite team is the Detroit Lions. He always favours the underdog, and has no pretensions that they will ever win the Superbowl. His birthday is a couple of weeks before the superbowl, and the new season is about to start. I coloured the image in promarkers to about the Lions colours. Inked the edge to look like a churned up pitch. Brayered a base card and added a sentiment.  Hope you like.

Hi there!  I've used Tennis Girl from our fab sponsor Kenny K.  She is coloured in with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, then mounted onto green and chocolate brown card to match the image colours.  I've added a piece of metal mesh to the background to imitate the tennis racket and a row of star brads.  For a final touch I found some little tennis balls in my stash.  I can't even remember buying them (a sure sign I have too much stash, but don't tell hubs, lol)!  Have fun creating this week and please consider joining this lovely DT team :) xx

Jacqui M: I also used one of our Fab sponsor Kenny Ks images, I chose Hockey Girl. I've coloured her with the trusty old promarkers, I printed her again this time scaling the image down further to get the little hockey skates as an embellishment. The backing papers are from The Clipart Fairy, Polka Dot Button and Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Girl.

Shelby  I used Basketball from our fabulous sponsor, Kenny K (I loooove his images)!  I paired him up with Reminisce papers called Hoops and Basketball Court.  The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Sentiments and cut it out with a circle nestie.  I picked the colors for his uniform from the papers, and it just so happened they were the exact colors of our local high school!  I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to seeing your Sports Mad designs...
