Super Bowl Sunday

Well, today is the day all football fans can hardly wait for, and dread, at the same time. I dread it because that means football is done until next season and I am stuck with basketball on every channel (which I don't watch at all). But I am rootin' for my home state Arizona Cardinals (Sorry, Holly!). Right now it's 10-7 Steelers, so we will see.

Be sure to check out this fantastic Super Bowl Sale at Hambo Stamps! What a deal! Come back Tuesday for some awesome Hambo designs I have to share with you!

Today I want to share this card with you. For the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge, I chose this card of Bev's to CASE (Copy and Share/Steal Everything). I didn't have any stamps similar to her images, so I chose this beautiful lighthouse stamp from Keep My Lamp Burning by Our Daily Bread designs. New release just today!

I kept her basic layout and design, but changed images, left off the flowers and my sentiment is in a different place. I chose beads randomly from my stash and then added silver spacers at each end on the pin. My image is stamped on watercolor paper and then painted using reinkers and an aqua brush.

There are three new releases over at Our Daily Bread designs. Be sure to check them out! And take a minute to watch the Slide show of many of the DT's cards! I also want to say a big welcome to Holly McMillen, who is our new Guest Designer at ODBD. We are thrilled to have her! Here is one of her awesome cards with Keep My Lamp Burning.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I will have a House Mouse & Friends card to show you, as well as another project I made at CHA using some of the new gorgeous Basic Grey paper!

I love this, Judy! The ribbon treatment is so cool and I love the bejeweled hatpin. Great colors, too! (Our cards could be sisters!)
