Happy Superbowl Sunday! It's hard to believe such a big event is being held "in my backyard"! (The University of Phoenix stadium is about 12 miles from my home). Between the Superbowl and the FBR Open in Scottsdale, there's a whole lot going on in the Phoenix area this weekend! We'll be attending two Superbowl parties this afternoon .... one during the first half, and one during the second half.

This card uses one of the Paper Pretties' new release stamps, Wade E. Bug. HERE is the Paper Pretties' website where you can order Wade E. Bug and other exclusive Paper Pretties Clear Art Stamps. Wade's vest, bow tie and top hat are paper pieced, and the silver buttons on his vest were created with Silver Stickles.
