La-La Land Sports Collection 2011 Release Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the La-La Land Sports Collection Blog Hop showcasing the release of SIX new Marci and Luka stamps!! You can see the entire new SPORTS release here. If you didn't just arrive here from Trisha's Blog then be sure to head back to the La-La Land Crafts Blog for the full details and blog hop order.

You'll want to leave a comment on every blog in the line-up to be eligible to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the La-La Land Crafts store.

For my card today, I'm showcasing Soccer Luka. He's such a cutie-patootie! My husband loves to play soccer. He played in high school and now plays on an indoor league. Our Saturday plans revolve around the sometimes dreaded "soccer schedule", haha! You can see my full card recipe at the end of this post. The layout for this card was inspired by Mojo Monday 176 Sketch.

Here's a close-up of Soccer Luka. Isn't he a doll?!! He reminds me of my little boy. He's colored with Copics and chalk.

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension. I used soccer ball stickers for the right hand border. I stuck them on cardstock and cut them out. Then, I raised every other soccer ball with pop-dots.

Now, you'll want to head on over to Becca's Blog to see her amazing creation! Remember to leave a comment on each blog to be eligible for the $25 gift certificate drawing.
