Did you see the Patriots knocked the Ravens right out of the stadium yesterday!?! Yah! I am a from Pittsburgh and a HUGE Steeler fan. I live in MD and not far from Baltimore, but they are still rivals to my family and me! This time last week, a dear friend text me "Sorry about them Steelers...guess they're feeling a lil black-n-purple huh...hehehe." ( I won't mention any names here!)and she also wrote on her blog; "we strongly, strongly DISLIKE the Steelers (hey we are Ravens and Redskins fans and Steelers are our biggest rivals 'he) . So we enjoyed seeing the Steelers crying in their terrible towels." Paybacks are painful and so my dear friend received this text from me! "I don't know about you , but I am feeling a little Patriotic, where you must be black, blue and purple" LOL I must say though, she was much better at the humor than I was!
As you know, I have been spending a lot of time at Gina K's and StampTV, which has excellent tutorial video's. My cards today is using the "Close Knit Friends" stamps and I had a lot of fun creating them! Very easy to create multi cards with! They were all colored at the same time! Can you tell? LOL

TIP OF THE DAY: I did not know this until today! You can not color any embossing powder except clear with Copic Markers. The color bleeds and mars your nibs. I stamped a Christmas tree today and embossed it with green embossing powder. When I attempted to color it the green bled and tinted my nib. I thought it was because I bought a non brand name. Always learning something new!
