Are you Ready for some Football?!

First! a reminder to check out my blog candy here: you have until tomorrow - 12/12 at 7pm EST to comment for a chance to win!

Boy - where has the time gone?!? I haven't posted for 2 days - that's a long time away for me!!! Did you miss me?!? LOL! You're probably glad for the rest right?!?!? I seem to have something every day after work this week - chiropractor, Bible Study, hair cut, one night Christmas gift shopping and then a work Christmas Party on Friday - my social calendar is seriously cutting into my stamping time!!

I have been working 0n a couple of cute holiday projects to sell at church that I've found while surfing around blogland! I'll post them here over the weekend.

Here is my card for the color challenge on Split Coast this week- to use Riding Hood Red, Taken with Teal, Baja Breeze and white.

I thought these colors were kind of masculine so I decided to use my H&M Stamp set "For the Love of the Game for this card. This is a great sports set and includes images of football, golf, baseball and hockey - I used the football stamps since it's the season !! I distressed and sponged all the edges. I punched some little stars and added them over some of the stamped stars. I went over the stars and the image with my silver spica pen so there is a little shimmer on this IRL - but it doesn't show up in the picture.

I used Tayloredexpressions Friday Sketch but I turned it on it's side!

Oh - and look what I was honored with this month from Heather and my fellow H&M Stamp DT members - I'm the star DT of the month which means I get 10 yards of fun ribbon and recognition with this sweet star to post on my blog!! (thanks ladies!)

AND - check out the H&M ad on my side bar - Heather is having a HUGE garage sale on January 6th and 7th so be sure and mark your calendars to check that out - I'll be posting more about that later!!

We've gone from the deep freeze to tropical rain here the last few days - yesterday it was rainy and 58 degrees ! and today it's raining again in the 40's and north and west of me are going to have icing - you gotta love New England - if you don't like the weather - wait a minute and it will change!!

Hope you have a great day - and thanks for coming by!

I'll be posting the winner of my blog Candy on Saturday so be sure to check back!
