A Couple of Squeakers...

Trying to squeak a post in before the Packers game. Now, many of you know that I'd rather watch baseball, that I'm a big Cubs fan, and that I could really care less about football, but my granddaughter is on the Tundra Line Drum Line up at Lambeau Field today. She's there for all the home games. And I'd love to catch a glimpse of her. She did make it on Monday Night Football, and my dear son was kind enough to capture a photo of her on his TV screen. Anyway, if I'm going to get any squeaking in done, I'd better keep moving along...

The second 'squeaky' thing is a new-to-me challenge called Dies R Us. They're on Challenge 16, and with only 8 hours left to go for this one, I thought I'd better get it in gear if I wanted to play. It's an anything goes challenge. I'm also playing along at Showcase Your Style, where we must use at least one die cut.

Grab our Badge!



Here's what I made:


All the stamps are from PTI's Note Niblet set. It's a great set chock a block full of wonderful images and sentiments. Very versatile. The dark green and blue inks are also from PTI, the rest are Colorbox and Studio G. The tag die is PTI, and the flag is MFT. Some random ribbon scrap, and a bit of twine from Karen Foster all on top of the Elle's Studio (is that right, Geri?) dp. This is just happy. I like it and hope you do too! Happy dances everyone, Aaron Rogers is calling plays and I must go watch for Melissa!
