HEY! I don't REALLY have a favorite, but the Pitts' Penguins are pretty good AND come on, being a Penguin can't be all bad, right?! HA HA!

I mean, they aren't a 'duck' or a 'flame' or a 'hurricane', but Penguins are just sooooo darned cute! Ha Ha!

Thanks for the opp to win some blogcandy!

Your 'aged to perfection' card is hilarious, especially with the drink in hand! Hugs, Nicole

Tracy said...

Sorry but it's the Detroit Redwings, my best friends cousin Brett Lebda plays for them so I feel a bit obligated. If it weren't them it would be the Chicago Blackhawks for sure.

Laraine R said...

Sorry I'm not a hockey fan!! But we have the Wild!! Love your blog!! Thanks for all the inspiration!!

Sankari W. said...

The Minnesota Wild is my team by default since my husband is from Minnesota and follows allllll the sports team.... so even though I don't know alot about hockey - i know alot about the Wild :)

Thanks for this great chance Dawn!!! what a great way to celebrate the Oiler's win!!! If this is what happens every time they win - then I hope that they have a FANTASTIC season!!! LOL!!!

Sankari :)

The Phoenix Coyote's are my favorite as one of their stars, Peter Mueller, played for the Everett Silvertips before he got drafted to play with the big boys! Thanks for sharing so much of you with us.

Carolina Hurricanes! I'm a southern girl, so hockey wasn't even on my radar until the Hurricanes came to town.It's all about college basketball here with Duke 5 miles from my house and UNC 8 miles from my house(our son is a junior at Carolina). But hockey is fun to watch and I really got into it when we won the Cup.Congrats to the Oilers on their win! Thanks for the chance to win the gift certificate.

Dawn, as I am from BC my favorite team will always be the Canucks. Always and forever. They look sooooo good this year. Your cards are terrific and I will keep coming to your blog for inspiration (even if you are an oilers fan).Love your work.

Betty aka ZacksNana said...

Not a "real" hockey fan... I know, don't beat me up! :-)
But I live north of Dallas so I will say
Dallas Hawks

I'm originally from Louisiana and LSU is my fav football team. GEAUX Tigers. I almost wept last night when they lost to Florida Gators. But we lost Matt Flinn and Jacob Hester to PRO Ball this season. But hey, we were the Champs last year!!!!

ANd Thanks for an OPP to win some free shtuff!

Jill said...

I am an Av's fan. So I am sad this evening. Oh well, there is always next game to cheer them on. :)

Deb said...

Thanks Dawn! Love your blog and your inspiration!

I'm going to have to go with the WILD!!!!! for Pro hockey that is. We watch more college hockey here GO GO GOPHERS!!!

Peggy said...

I'm not qualified to win, but I just want to say....

"You're in oil country"

And seriously the last goal that penner put in was oh so pretty...
Wish you were there lol

tyhaymom said...

Dawn, we are HUGE Oiler fans! Thats what led me to your blog! Awesome win eh? Let's hope the rest of the season goes this way. I love your blog, you give me so much inspiration (I'm addicted to your game too:) ) GO OILERS GO!!!

Laura M. said...

I don't know anything about hockey -- but I do know that I look forward to your blog posts. You are so prolific and your work is beautiful.

Charlene H. said...

OK, now don't laugh! I don't watch hockey (and I'm even from Canada!) but my favorite team is Boston Bruins. Why, you might be thinking. Well, when I got my first cat, my husband named it Boston. We got our second cat and couldn't think of a name. A friend suggested Bruin so that is what we named him. We had a Boston and a Bruin. Does this still count??? (hee hee)

Kristie said...

Ok, I'm Australian and have never seen an ice hockey game in my life....but I'm glad you're happy about your team :)

Cathy said...

Of course it is the Pitts Penguins. I just love your cards, they are awesome.

Marisa said...

Not a huge hockey fan -- fighting drives me nuts!! -- but my DS loves it so I watch it so we can talk about it :) We are split in our family: DH - Toronto, DS: Mighty Ducks, Me: Vancouver -- I think ;)

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies. Just LOVE your creations and your blog. My DH's brother lives in St. Albert and we visit occasionally so I think of you when we are there.

Lastel said...

Not a big sports fan of any kind , but glad your team won , that is always exciting !

The Avalanche!!

Lydia said...

Love how excited you get about hockey!! I went to college in upstate NY and no one here in Texas understands how fun it is!

Detroit Red Wings!

Amanda said...

With parents from Michigan, I was raised with the Red Wings. But, living in Tennessee and North Carolina, I have A LOT of Predators stuff and saw the Hurricanes in the play offs a few years ago...But, I totally enjoy our Charlotte Checkers team, too! CHECK SOMEBOOOOOOOOOOODY..LOL

michelle ip said...

Sorry I don't follow sports so I don't have a favorite team. But I am Canadian so any Canadian team rocks!! I'm glad your favorite team won!!

Lisa V said...

I don't watch hockey but I root for Canadian teams. Seeing that I'm close to Toronto I put Toronto Maple leaf jerseys on my son.

De said...

I love hockey! My NHL team would be the Washington Capitals, but I love following our local hockey team, the Charleston Stingrays.

Vicki (CraftCrazy98) said...

Seeing as I'm from the Detroit area and our team has the Stanley Cup... of course I have to say GO RED WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!! :D Sorry, Dawn... haha... just had to rub that in ; )

Kerry J. said...

Well seeing as I lived in Calgary most of my life - I'm a Flames fan! I just can't defect to being a Leafs fan - even though we've been here 5 yrs. now.

MichelleInBoise said...

Um...the San Jose Sharks...because they are my "home" team....

Eileen McClean said...

The Oilers as I am from St Albert,
Eileen

Alyssa said...

Being a Colorado gal, I will have to say the Av's. :( Sad about that loss...

Jolie A said...

Well Dawn it has to be your teams arch rivals. The Calgary Flames. I am from Calgary and it is written in stone you're not allowed to cheer for Edmonton. Tee hee.

Niki :) said...

My favorite has to be the Detroit Redwings. I know its probably weird, but I love trying to pronounce all of their crazy last names!

mary marsh said...

Who would a girl from Pittsburgh like except the Penguins

Nancy Park said...

I've lived in Florida for 35 years, is there still ice somewhere? I used to live on Long Island and went to see the Long Island Ducks play many times, great fun! But I don't even know the name of a current team.

Tracy.H said...

Okay...you won't believe this one! I know I am in Calgary, so you are thinking the Calgary Flames. But guess what? My hubby is originally from...EDMONTON! So in our household it is the Oilers! If they are out and Calgary is still alive then of course we will root for the Flames...maybe. ;0)

Anonymous said...

Atlanta Thrashers!! Who doesn't like a good hockey game in "Hot Lanta"!! I must admit, I enjoy the Gwinnett Gladiators more than the NHL Teams. The Gladiators are awesome even though they are not pro.

I really enjoy seeing your creations every day and reading your blog. Thanks for sharing your talent.

I am not a hockey fan, so coming up with a team name is hard. As a kid it was the NY Islanders, and now I live near Boston, so I guess I hear a lot about the Bruins. But, since I really don't know anything about hockey, I'd be willing to root for the Oilers just to make someone else happy!(LOL) Glad you enjoy this so much, and although I am not a sports fan I do enjoy reading what you write about the Oilers and racing. Happy Thanksgiving! ~Susan

Mary H said...

Definitely the Buffalo Sabres!

Maria Gurnsey said...

I live in Colorado and I'm totally bummed about this post. Have you guessed my favorite team!!! I use to watch the Av's faithfully but then football became my obsession. Thanks for the chance at a gift certificate.

Maria (aka sore loser)

Dawn, don't get your hopes up, remember last year, sometimes it seemed like the Oilers didn't show up for the games. I am quite sure that the Penguins will take it all this year. "Go Penguins Go". Since I am close to Pittsburgh, that is my team. Ever since the Oilers lost Ryan Smyth, it was all down hill from there. Glad to see that the Oilers had won their opening game to make your Thanksgiving Day complete.

kat said...

Even though I live in California, I love anything from Arizona so I'll say the Phoenix Coyotes!

Lori A. said...

Ummm..errr...hockey? Well, I haven't gotten into that one. LOL I'm not a huge sports fan, unless it's my kids. ;) Congrats to your fave team, though!

Allison said...

I just am adding my comment to this post to say your team sucks! Ha ha! Of course, my team really sucks losing the first two games of the season...is it too early to give up on them already?

Veronica said...

The Phoenix Coyotes!

Kimberly G said...

Hockey? What's that? I've never seen a hockey game but I know that it always rocks to when your team wins. Enjoy the win!

Juanita said...

I am from Calgary, so I am a Flames fan (sorry) Yah Dion Phanuef!

Perrie said...

OK....I'm not SOOOO happy that your Oilers won...as I'm from Colorado and get all kinds of excited when the Av's play...so, needless to say, I'm a Colorado Av's fan...but also a fan of your blog-site. Your creations are awesome!!!!

Laura (scrapnextras) said...

The Flames Baby!!

Jennifer Love said...

Oh who me? Like HOCKEY? lalala la la la laaa. hehe

We're season ticket holders for the San Jose Sharks. So yeah, I gotta go with my team. *wink* :D

Go Leafs Go! I can dream can't I?

Actually I too am an Edmonton Oiler's fan . . . great to see another Canadian online! Go Oilers!

Melissa said...

OF COURSE the Oilers are my favorite team too!!! How can you live in Alberta north of Red Deer and NOT be an Oilers' fan????? That is UNTHINKABLE! :) Happy Thanksgiving!!

Janene said...

Sorry, but I cheer for the Anaheim Ducks. Congrats on your win!

Steph said...

The Carolina Hurricanes!!!!! Thanks for sharing.

Renita said...

30 years in the NHL - 30 years an Oilers fan! It was your blog name that brought me to your site and now I'm as hooked to your site as I am to the Oilers! Sadly we were driving from Red Deer to Edmonton after spending Thanksgiving with my family and couldn't watch the game, but we did listen to it on the radio! Go Oilers!

lauren said...

Gotta love those red wings...go stanley cup champs!!!

Gigi said...

Montreal Canadiens. Go HABS!

DH is a Leafs fan, sad isn't it???

Ashley said...

I don't have a favorite hockey team. Am I disqualified?

Lori said...

Washington Capitals!! Maybe this is finally their year . . . And I have a favorite college hockey team, too--my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin Badgers.

Ravengirl said...

I wish that I could say that I follow hockey, but I don't. The team that I live closest to is the Vancouver Canucks, so I will have to support the locals!

Bunny B said...

Hmmm... I don't have one. Could I still join in? :)
