CAS Card and More Crafty News!

Hello Friends, Happy Monday to you!  I hope you enjoyed the weekend?!  For the first time in weeks I sat down and cranked out about 5 cards, it felt sooooooooooooooooooo good!  There is just something about crafting that is so invigorating to me!

I wanted to share one of those cards with you here today.  This card features some lovely hues of blue and brown and a sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop's Color Wheel embossed in gold and these Dear Lizzy feathers. Miss Amy T. gave me these feathers for my birthday in June (yes June....) and I have been hoarding them ever since!  The DP colors were just too perfect to not use them, so I broke them out. Of course you know I am crazy for Challenges, so I am entering this card into the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge, the Color Throwdown Challenge and the Stamplorations Stamps Feather Challenge, I think the reason for all three is obvious. :)

I also have some very exciting crafty news to share with you today.  I am part of the Top Dog Dies Design Team!  AND....check out my fabulous teamies!   Whoa!  You can check out the announcement here.  I can't wait to get my hands dirty and use some of these dies and hope you will come and check it out.














So that is the big news for today and I thank you for reading.  :)  I am working on a Seahawks inspired card to give them some extra juju for the Superbowl, which I *know* they will be part of, so stay tuned for that. Today's Question of the Day is- What team will you be rooting for in the Superbowl?  I know there are a few possibilities still, but given the teams in now, who do you hope will be there?
