Challenge #22: Yay Team!

Hello Users!
We hope everyone had a wonderful week of holiday festivities!

While there is a lot of celebrating, we are also sniffling as we bid a fond farewell to our first Design Team. Sami and I thank you all from the bottom of our hearts! What a fabulous team...we were so blessed to have you be a part of the Use It Tuesday Family!
Our new team will be introduced on the 6th when we post the winner from this challenge, so stay tuned!

Now, for our challenge: Please make a project that incorporates the colors of your favorite sports team!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday Jan 6th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE022 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Nancy loves her some hockey and this card is made in honor of the Calgary Flames. (Even though I think the red has to do with the old slogan, GIVE BLOOD, PLAY HOCKEY!) She used her hoarded Doodlebug brads and black paper for this 'hat trick' of a card!

Sonya's family are HUGE Colt's fans! She used her hoarded and retired SU blue paper for this darling page, plus her Cricut Opposites Attract cartridge that was collecting dust. I'd say this page is a touchdown!

Dinah made a card in honor of her husband's favorite NBA team, the Celtics! The paper and embellishments are all from 2009. This layout sure is a slam dunk!

made a tag using her son's favorite football team's colors (which I actually think in the US might be a soccer team? We always have to be different, don't we!) EVERYTHING on this beauty was hoarded and she pulled out her old sewing machine to dress it up! GOALLLLLL!

is getting ready for the Rose Bowl with this sporty layout in honor of her Oregon Ducks! Can you believe she STILL has hoarded paper left after her term with us? Say it isn't so! :) Good luck Ducks!

Heather is another hockey fan and she made this sweet card in honor of her hometown team! Ribbon, patterned paper and a flower all came from her stash. This card is a breakaway!

Jane, who lives in CA but seems to be a Jets fan (Traitor! Ha Ha), made this gorgeous wreath with her hoarded stamps! Ingenious use of the snowflake, don't you think? Even though she should have made a card with red and gold (tee hee), we will still give this a 'win'!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
