The Paper Variety Challenge/Super Bowl

I made this card thinking I could enter it into the Unity Sketch Challenge, but I didn't use any Unity stamps on this card. I did follow the sketch, however. The Paper Variety ( is using the hearts picture as an inspiration for this week's challenge. I have some pink & purple on my card, so I think it qualifies! I made the card for a family (Chris & Trisha Michael) who's baby was just born a few weeks ago without a palate, her jaw is off set, has kidney problems, and now has a trach tube to help her breathe. Please be praying for Allison and her parents! Trisha's dad is a member of my church and her grandfather used to be the preacher, also. The quote on the front states, "Of course I can do anything I'm a mother." (author unknown) I also used a teddy bear punch for the 3 teddy bears at the top of the pink gingham square. There's also pink, blue, and green in the heart, flower, and butterfly stickers at the bottom. The gingham square is party of my goodies from Nikki, In Stitches ( The inside I chose stickers "adore", "Congrats!", "baby", a rub-on "God's Blessing", "Luv Ya!", and another saying "cute as a button" to decorate the card with. The quote on the front and "cute as a button" I put through my Xyron Create a Sticker maker to get them to stick without using glue or double-sided tape! I love that sticker maker!!

I hope everyone has a great Super Bowl Sunday! I'm rooting for the Steelers in memory of Grant Gable, who died this past Wednesday morning. He was a huge Steelers fan! His memorial service was Saturday and went very well! He was a diabetic and was only 49, but loved others and didn't mind helping others whenever he could! I start back with TJ Maxx at 4 and am working until 8:30, so I'm going to miss half the Super Bowl. I plan on watching as much as I can when I get home! Hopefully Steelers will be well in the lead by then!! TFL and have a great day! :)
