Celebrating Super Bowl and Surprise Blog Candy!

This is the front and inside of an easel card I made to celebrate the amazing fact that my Packers are in the Super Bowl! And then yesterday I found another reason to celebrate: my blog now has 100 followers! I am so excited about these two super things that I decided to draw for SURPRISE BLOG CANDY! I got together a package of 10 original cards w/envelopes and a bunch of cool ribbon and rub-ons and drew a name from my 100 followers.

And the winner is...... jimlynn or Lynn at Creative Crafts by Lynn. Lynn came to my blog from the fantastic "leave a comment and become a follower" promotion at Feline Playful. I am so grateful to the women at Feline Playful not only for that great promotion but also for their daily lists that show so much detail on all the great challenges out there to do everyday. Lynn-please contact me with your snail mail address so I can send you your goodies.

I am playing in the challenges at Creative Cottage (shaped cards) and Cards for Men (Let's Party!). I saw a card using this template from The Cutting Cafe at the Cards for Men site and just had to get it for my Packer celebration. I couldn't resist some of the other templates there either and will be sharing some more cards from the Cutting Cafe in the near future.

I just cut out the football pieces and made it into an easel card using a helmet brad to hold it open. After putting together I embossed the whole thing with a CB folder. The helmet stamp is an old one from Darcie's Stamps and the Celebrate is Stampin Up. I added some stickers to finish the card.

So thanks to my followers and subscribers and Go Pack Go!!

Very all of that embossed paper. I guess I can "go pack" one more time since all of you Wisconsin people are so happy and excited. Don't tell my family that I'm rootin' for anyone other than the Redskins or they'll disown me! ha!

LOVE this card....still haven't decided who I should yell for in the upcoming Super Bowl. But your card is just amazing and so fun! Guess you could say it's just a SUPER card for a Super Bowl.
