Today's featured set is perfect for invitations for those backyard parties, arm chair viewing parties, scrapbooking, or encouragement for your local schools.

For my project, I went with the Keep It Simple Stamper method since my migraines were getting out of control again.  Instead of stamping my main image, I chose to use a BBQ die cut that was sent to me by a friend and paired it with the pennant banner stamp at the top of the card along with the GO TEAM saying.  After pulling each of the banners up a bit for added dimension, I stamped the football onto scrap white card stock, colored then cut it out before adhering with glue dots.  Presto!!  My card was finished.  So now I have one question for you:  Are you ready for some football??????  :)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day and don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to leave some love for a chance to win today's featured set.
