Favorite Color Challenge

This week, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge Blog and the challenge is "Favorite Color".  Well, my favorite color is purple, but for some reason I don't use purple on my cards much.  I have noticed, though, that I use a lot of green and pink.  I especially like Green Galore from Stampin' Up, but unfortunately they've discontinued that color.  :(   I do still have some left from before they got rid of it, but one day soon, all of my Green Galore paper will be gone.  Here is the card that I made for this challenge:

I used SSD's Mary Poppins image.  Isn't she pretty?  Here's a close-up:

Today, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring Crafting Journey.  Their challenge is a BINGO.  Here is the bingo card:

I decided to do a diagonal using brads, embossing, and sentiment.  Here is what I came up with:

I used SSD's Bonnie of the Nile.  Isn't she fabulous?  The gold paper is embossed, the sentiment I thought matched this image perfectly.  For the brads, I had some odd little flat brads in my stash but I didn't like the way they looked, but then I stuck on some pretty gold rhinestones on the brads and it makes it all better!  ;)
I hope you'll come and play with us at Crafty Journey!  Can't wait to see what you'll create!
Stamps:  Bonnie of the Nile (Sassy Studio Designs), sentiment is an unknown digital image

Sassy Sponsorships!

This is my first week being back on the Sassy Sponsorship team.  Today Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring two challenges- Crafts 4 Eternity and Fat Pages With Attitude.  The challenge for both of these is "Be My Valentine".  I decided to create a SMASH page for Valentine's Day using Sassy Cupid.

Of course, I'll still need to add photos to the pages after I take them.  I hope you like it.

Super Bowl CHAMPIONS!!

This post is not really craft related but I couldn't pass it up.....yesterday was Super Bowl beloved Ravens were playing the San Francisco 49ers in what was touted as the "Harb-Bowl" or the "Super-Baugh" since the coaches of these two teams are  brothers- John and Jim Harbaugh.

After a loonnngggg,  nail-biting game with a 30-some minute delay because the lights went out, my Ravens came out on top by beating the Niners 34-31.  This win is extra special because this was Ray Lewis' "last ride".  He's retiring.  No more #52 making hard hitting more "General" leading the team...but...he's going out on top- as a Super Bowl CHAMPION!!! 

Ray hoisting the Lombardi Trophy while the confetti flies.

Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco.

Ray still holding onto the Lombardi Trophy on the flight home to Baltimore.

Now to make this post sort-of craft related, here are 2 pages I did in my SMASH book to celebrate Super Bowl XLVII:
This was a lot of fun to do...especially when I could finish it this morning with a winning score!!!!
