Superbowl Sunday.... Congrats To The Steeler Nation!

Well it's Superbowl Sunday.. Who are you rooting for? I haven't felt good all day and have been laying on the heating pad most of the day with those dreaded monthly cramps. UGH!

My best friend Kelli has a Superbowl Party every year and I skipped out on her tonight cause I just don't feel like do much of anything.

I am excited about finally getting my craft room! I've got all my stuff moved into my son's old bedroom. Saturday, my husband, son and I installed some kitchen countertops in the room for my workspace. I spent all day yesterday organizing my shelves, the closet and patiently waiting until I could put things on top of the countertops.

I will take some pictures of my craft room soon so I can share with you all. I've still got a few things to do, like hanging things on the walls..but everything is in so I'm happy!!

I have two cards to share with you tonight. The first card I used my Tilda with heart from the Holiday collection. I going to use this as a Valentines Day card even though it's not your traditional colors. I colored her with Copics and used my Scalloped Oval Nestabilites and the Houndstooth Cuttlebug embossing folder. The DP is from DCWV. I added ribbon I got at Michaels.

Now.. the second card I have to share is for a new Challenge Blog that I just joined. Christmas Stampin All Year Long is a great way to get you Christmas cards done early! Each week, a sketch is provided and you make your card from that sketch.

This is the sketch for this weeks challenge:

This is the card I created:

I love this Santa image. The DP is from My Mind's Eye Glitter Christmas Glitter Pack. I added the three snowflake brads..aren't they cute???

Thanks for stopping by!! I will have more cards to share this week!

Hi Monica!! Your card is gorgeous!! I have that stamp and there was a time when that stamp was selling as a collector's item because it was discontinued but it was re-released last year.

I love the dp that you used and those cute snowflake brads are adorable. Your card will surely inspire others to want to create their Christmas cards early!!

Your Tilda card is a cutie too. She looks like she's waiting patiently for someone!! Beautiful job coloring the image!!

Hi Moni, I love the cards. The paper is so pretty & I love both images. The snowflake brads are cool. This is a good challenge. I guess I better get with it & make my Christmas cards. At least, there's a chance they'll get done.
