Super Bowl Mania

Today as many know it,  is Super Bowl Sunday!! yup, I’m a total football fan.  After being a football widow for 7 years, 4 years ago it finally came to me. If you can’t beat’em then better join’em. Tom taught me the fundamentals of the game and we have been enjoying it together since. He loves how I get in the spirit by cooking up his favorite snacks for the game. Today it will be my famous guacamole with chips to start, then Grandma E’s famous chili beans, she taught me how to make them from scratch. Yum-E!!  Tom’s taking care of the main course on the grill, hotlinks & carne adasa. Hopefully it won’t start raining when he fires up the grill. So cross your fingers for us :)

So today we are rooting for the Saints. We do have a Colts fan in the house. “Tyla” I guess it’s a peaceful way for her to rebel. hee hee. Last night I got  in the spirit by putting this cute easel card together. What do you think? Tom liked it!


I used my Pink Cat Studio “Sporty Billy” stamp set. I just love his little doggie referee! Isn’t he a cutie? I was also in luck because I just happened to have a fleur De Lys wax sealer on hand.


I colored in my Image using my Copic Markers. Colors used for his skin are Eoo, Eo2, E11. For his hair and the dog: E31, E33, E35 His uniform is C3, C5, C7, C9 and C1 for his shoes. I embossed his helmet with Ranger’s Queen’s Gold, and used my  SU bashful blue for the clouds and Mellow moss for the grass. I also thought I should let you know I made the ribbon bunch using Scor-Tape. Thanks for looking and have a great Super Bowl Sunday!!! 


  1. That card is really cute, I know a few Saints fans that would love it.

    Your FIL is manning the gril today just like Tom and I am in charge of the guac and coleslaw. I don't like football though, so I will be trying to work.

    Can you teach me how to make chili beans? I keep saying that I am going to try and make them from stratch, then I chicken out.

    I am tucking a jar of strawberry jam for you into Margaux's truck. Be on the look out for it.

  2. Thx Gwen, and I can't wait to get the jam :) Of course I will e-mail you my recipe,It took me a while to perfect. But now fam says they taste as good as grandmas!!
