my project today is super simple but really fun!  my mom hosts a family reunion crawfish boil every year on the sunday before easter.  i always make the invites.  of course she always starts off with these outlandish requests but so far i have managed to accomodate her.  last year we had a crawfish hatching from an ester egg!  well this year OF COURSE we had to incorporate the New Orleans Saints since they won the super bowl!  so i used Saints colors – white, black & gold and of course drew brees had to make an appearance:

i’m sorry but this just cracks me up!  it is  postcard style and the info will be on the back.  the gold embossed strip is this AMAZING new stuff i discovered at CHA – Glue Foil – it is foil with a heat activated adhesive already on the back of it!  so i ran it through my cuttlebug with this cool fleur de lis embossing folder, lid it on my card where i wanted it nd then heated it breifly with my heat gun.  i gently pressed it down with a paper towel (the foil gets hot fast) nd it sticks!  the best part is that it unsticks with more heat in case you need to move it ( i did!) and then resticks with additional heat!  i also FINALLY tried out the glue suzanne swears by after some frustration with my defective ATG gun.  she uses scotch 3m quick dry glue.  i am NOT a fan of white glue.  nightmares of childhood and elmers glue buckling my paper and ruining my master pieces.  well so far i am liking the scotch glue – works well for my large panels AND my tiny die cut pieces.  my little drew brees is cut with my cricut OF COURSE using the Everyday Paaper Dolls cartridge – cricut cuts are the BEST way to go when making LOTS of something!  his little face is a peachy keen stamp – she makes THE most adorable face stamps to go with all of your cricut cartridges plus really cute regular stamps too – i just LOVE her whimsical style!

and now it is off to work i go!!  my plate is FULL and pezzy has play gym today too!
