The Big Game...Ohio vs. Michigan

Every year, my dh and I bet on the Ohio vs. Michigan and the Army vs. Navy football games. I have been on a winning streak for several years now. Ohio beat Michigan on November 22, 2008 with a final score of 42-7. And today, Navy beat Army with a final score of 34-0. That zero is not a typo...Army really didn't score a single point today. :(
In honor of the Michigan and Ohio game, Valerie and I made John some state shaped cut out cookies. A big thank you to Dave and Julie for sending us these special cookie cutters! I think we'll make these every year for the big game! John took a platter of these to his work to share in their Thanksgiving potluck luncheon, and he seems to be surrounded by Buckeye fans! My "O's" are a little shakey, but I think I might have been a little tired after sitting through a 4 hour Infant and Child CPR class earlier that evening.
Here are the Michigan Cookies!

And here are the Ohio cookies!

And here are the taste testers!

SU Stamp Camp Projects

Here are the SU stamp camp projects we created this month. They are all really cute, but I think my favorite one would have to be the candy bar wrapper since I love sweets so much!

Project #1 - Candy Bar Wrapper - When you make these, it is a good tip to use your crimper tool to crimp the bottom of the wrapper to give it that authentic look...just make sure to not crimp the actual candy bar! The stamp in the the center says "Sweet Treat."

Project #2 - Heartfelt Card - This card was made with pastel chalks. Just stamp your image with a white or a VersaMark ink pad and then gently dab (try not to rub to prevent smearing) your desired chalk colors!
Project #3 - Christmas Ornament - This is a paper ornament made with embossing glitter on the scalloped square die cut. The snowflake stamped in the center was stamped with white ink and it's a great contrast on dark colored cardstock.

Here is the back side of the ornament. This was just a single snowflake stamp that was stamped multiple times. This technique was also done on the front.
