 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Holiday Tag"

 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Nature's Brushstrokes"

Well, here it is Friday already.  My challenge today is a Color Challenge -- Rust, Tangerine, Lime Green, any Neutral.  Today's set is a fun one -- the letters in several of the sentiments are individual stamps, so you can stamp a single letter in the pennant, which is what I did; and then I hung the pennants from a piece of twine to form a banner.  The football is stamped on Rust cardstock, cut out, and then run through my Big Shot using the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, which sort of makes it look like a real football.

As a bonus today, I made a card using this month's mini set, Nature's Brushstrokes.  Even though it has many layers, I would still consider it a Clean and Simple card.  I colored the image with markers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you've gotten lots of inspiration from my cards this week.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created using today's set.  Here's the Design Team:

The embossing on the football is a touchdown!! I use to be a football fan but nowadays the players are only in it for the money. Not a Dallas Cowboy fan. I do watch an occasional game. Especially like the Super Bowl. I do like the Texas Rangers baseball team. Like the CAS card. I'm a CAS sort of card making gal.
