Go Big Blue

I was wanting to make some football stickpins and wanted to make it not too girly so that it would work as a guy/boy birthday card.  I live in a HUGE Boise State Fan base.  For that matter, my oldest daughter will start at BSU in the fall – she was accepted into the music major program there.  It is interesting though – people who are not BSU fans HATE BSU.  So, I figured it would still work for the Dude Time Doodles challenge (Use a funny sentiment) – when is school rivalry NOT funny?  😉  This is a Dude Time Doodles image.

Fun huh?  Nice and bright, but still manly (I hope).


Thanks for looking!
