Can Can The Giants Win Today?

Ok, corny title for a blog post, but as I'm posting this I'm also prepping for the big game party we're having in a few hours!!  As you can tell, I'm totally a die hard Giants fan and have been since I was a little girl.  Soooo, I'm hoping that the Giants can-can win today :)

And talking about Can-Can's, lemme show you what I created using a fabulous image and sentiment from TLC!

I drew a lot of inspiration from quite a few sources for this one:  I am always inspired by my Clear Dollar Stamps teamie and friend, Lisa Lara, who always blows me away with her clean and simple cards utilizing all the colors in the rainbow.  If you haven't run into Lisa, and would love to see some of her creativity, then click here to go to Lisa's blog!  Don't forget to tell her that I sent ya over :)  I think there's a bit of Xanadu *remember that movie?!* in this one too with the outlining of the characters in the background with a teal blue.  I relied solely on plain cs so as not to distract from the image and did a little faux stitching with my Copic multiliner on the stars and some dots around the sentiment! Finally, Sketches By Carly #49 brought it all home.  If you have a chance, try to check out the sketch this week -it really was a lot of fun to work with!

Oh, and guess what?!! Paulette at TLC is hosting a Fairytale Blog Hop on February 18th and me and my teamies would love it if you could hop along with us!! 

If you've ever hopped with us at TLC before, then you know how awesome these hops are - this one you definitely don't wanna miss!

Back to my chili and meatball prep!!  Hope you have a fun game day.  Remember to be safe and responsible :)
