Football Challenge

Hey Everybody!  It is time for another Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge!  This week, our leader Susan, has chosen a Football theme.  Our challenge is to create a man project with football in mind.  
Well, I'm from Louisiana, and we are big Louisiana State University fans.  I decided to make my husband a coffee mug to support the Tigers.  I think it came out pretty cute!  
FYI:  "Geaux" is Cajun slang for "Go."  :)
I used Plantin SchoolBook.
I used my gypsy to turn and weld the letters on "Geaux Tigers."
Plantin SchoolBook-LSU cut at 1.18 in.
Plantin SchoolBook-Geaux Tigers -cut at 1 in.
Yellow vinyl

I purchased my vinyl from  It came in super fast!

If you are intimidated cutting vinyl, don't be!  It's actually easier to work with than paper.  I have another post with detailed pictures on the steps to cutting with vinyl.  

So we hope you join us at Bitten by the Bug 2 for this weeks challenge!!

And if you need an idea for a great Sunday dinner, on my food blog you can check out these Farmer's Pork Chops.
The whole meal bakes up in a casserole dish starting with layers of potatoes and onions, while the pork chops cook on top.  So good!
