Sale-A-Bration Bear

Today is Super Bowl Sunday and the first day of Sale-A-Bration! One of my favorite items offered this year is the awesome pack of papers called Delicate Dots. It contains 16 sheets (4 each of 4 double sided papers) So you have 8 different patterns to use on all your paper crafting projects. My card below shows four of the patterns. I also got some new catalog goodies on Friday! Too bad I've hardly had a chance to play...but I did manage to sneak this card in. Doesn't this bear crack you up? My friend was over last week and she brought her Under the Stars set so I could stamp a few images to play with. (thanks Julie!) I thought he'd look cute holding a bunch of balloons paper pieced with the Delicate Dots paper. I just stamped the balloon image from Crazy for Cupcakes onto the patterned paper and cut them out to make the festive balloon bouquet.

The Bashful Blue background is embossed using the new SU! exclusive Texturz Plates and the Big Shot. The Certainly Celery layer of the tag was also created using the Big Shot and one of the new Lots of Tags Sizzlets. I think I'm going to get a lot of use out of both of these sets!

I'm heading off to a Super Bowl party this afternoon which should be fun, but it also means I'll be eating way too much, and again won't get to play with my new goodies...but there's always tomorrow! Have a SUPER day!
