Well the day has finally arrived and I am thrilled to announce that Sunshine & Giggles is now officially opened for business!! If you haven't seen my previous posts Sunshine & Giggles is the newest stamp line to hit the web and is dedicated to children, specifically African-American children. Please stop by and visit. I think you will be pleased.
My card today is for Mojo Monday and I am using one of my brand new Sunshine stamps. As always, Mojo provided a great sketch! I made this card for my husband for father's day.

Can you tell by the colors what team he roots for, lol. He is a huge steelers fan and will love this little guy! Our son is 6 and isn't playing yet, but I know it won't be long.

Supplies: I used Stampin Up cardstock, except for the star embossed card stock, don't know who it is by but I picked it up at Michael's. The dp is from Me & My Big Ideas. The ribbon was also from Michaels and the brad and little ribbon are from Memory Makers.
Don't forget to visit Sunshine & Giggles and leave me some feedback- I would love to hear what you think.

Janice, this is such a great card! I absolutely love this image as we are a huge football family. Your colors are so perfect to pay homage to the Steelers! My DS looks like Troy Polomalu (my kiddos are of Hawaiian/African American descent), I also went to school with Kimo Von Oelhoffen at the University of Hawaii. ;) Any dad will appreciate a sports card, I think your sister captured an incredible moment of a football experience.
