What's up with me!

I have been a Browns fan all my life and wanted something unique to support my team. Being a Cleveland (I love the Indians and Cavs, too) sports fan there are certain phrases that you get used to saying, like "there's always next year." But even with that, I'm a die hard, loyal fan. It's almost ridiculous. This year my husband has a season ticket and has been to every home game and I have been to several games. Including the Monday night game when we beat the pants off of the New York Giants (who are now 7-1 and we're the 1). We also went to Baltimore for the Ravens @ Browns game--which I don't want to dicuss.
To make a long story short, I wanted a Browns purse. I've seen a few never ones I really like, so I decided to make one and here it is. Now I have something that no one else has. Hopefully, the Browns will do something else this season but it not, I'm still a huge fan, I still have my purse and there's always next year!

FYI: This is now a craft blog!!!
I saw a card similar to this at a friends house and thought to my self "that's super cute & I can make it." So, I did. The original had the ears on the ends but I think it looks more like a cat and less like a bat this way.
I'll be adding a lot more fun things later.
Here's what I did: I cut the shape out of black cardstock then cut the eyes out of orange and the nose out of black. I masked the area where I wanted the eyes and nose to be with the shapes and sprayed with adhesive. I turned the eyes and nose over and then coated the entire thing with black glitter. I cut thin strips of black cardstock and then snipped them from one end almost to the other (keeping them in one peice). I curled the whiskers with scissors and voila!!
