Congratulations . . .

Happy SUPER BOWL SUNDAY Everyone!
I wonder who the Congratulations will go to at day's end??
But before the 'big game' begins, I want to share with you a card I have created for the fabulously fun sketch challenge blog found over at Cardabilities Card Sketch Blog.
This is the new sketch I followed for my creation.


I am in need of some 'congratulatory' type cards so that is the theme I went with today.  I also have some new heart dies that I was anxious to use today.  What do you think?




















In case you haven't noticed, I've been playing around with making some changes to my blog and how it appears to the outside world (hope you like it).  
Not only have I been inspired to learn how to create my own blog headers but I'm trying to clean things up a bit so it's not too cluttered and 'scare' you away!  I typically share my photos with you in extra large size so you can see the detail but I'm afraid maybe that's a mistake so I will share only in 'large' size or smaller that way you can click on it if you want an even closer look.

Now back to my card.
I have been SO happy with the cards I've been creating for this challenge!  I really think these sketches have inspired me to be more creative and for that I thank the owners and design team at Cardabilites!  
OH and if you are a scrapbooker ... they also have a blog geared towards scrapbook sketches ... there's a link at the top of the Cardabilities Card Sketch Blog ... check it out!

Other challenges to share in today:
Poppy Stamps Challenge #5 - My Love 
Crafty Creations Challenge #281 - Something Old, Something New

For those of you watch the game today ... ENJOY!
We are expecting SNOW all day (6+ inches predicted) so no parties for us other than in the safety and comfort of our own livingroom!  We have a 58" TV ... I think that's all that's required!!  LOL
