Game On!

Stampin up extra large two step bird punch

This fun little set was packaged with a few other Arizona goodies (below) for my sister and brother-in-law's birthdays (both in January).  Despite living in Wisconsin, my brother-in-law (Ed) is a die hard Vikings football fan and we, on the other hand, adore the Packers.  Do you think he will catch my sneaky message using Packers' green and gold?  

Stampin up bird punch well scripted group

Ed keeps asking if we have seen any roadrunners since we moved to
Tucson.  We haven't (just tons of hummers and quails on our turf) so the Roadrunner cookies will have to suffice. 
Don't miss the cookie cutter!

  • Stampin up well scripted happy birthday card Salute new favorites from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Meet the Well Scripted "happy birthday" stamp (love that font–complete set of images below) and the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch for the bird and stems.
  • My 3 x 3 gift card tucked perfectly into one of Stampin' Up!'s Whisper White Mini Square Envelopes (107309, 40 for $7.50).
  • The Circle Rhinestone brad is incredibly pleased jazzing up the Pumpkin Pie Sherbet Designer Button.  It's easy to cut off the brad "legs" and attach a brad to a button with a Mini Glue Dot (103683).
  • Why not a better dressed candy bar?  Hershey's White Chocolate is far more impressive decked out in Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper.  The belly band is from Flock Together Designer Series.  Carry on!

  1. super cute ensamble!! and yes, that cookie cutter is super cute!! great job!

  2. This is precious! Believe it or not, some of us here in SC love the Packers too. It goes way back to their glory days of the early Super Bowls.

  3. So cute Mary! I love the roadrunner cookie cutter. Where did you find that? As an AZ native, I have seen quite a few roadrunners around Phx. Not sure about Tucson though. Now that I am up here in Flag…lol..mostly just snow is all I have seen lately. 😛

  4. Hi Mary, Just heading home from Leadership and couldn’t resist a comment. My husband is a true Green Bay fan and I’m on the vikings sidelines. Cards are great. Ellen (Cdn)

  5. I for one LOVE the Packers Green and Gold! My father-in-law is from Manitowoc, so there you go! Great combination of colors Mary! I had so much fun hanging with you at Leadership roomie!

  6. Love the subtle, or not so subtle LOL, packaging of the gifts LOL! Great b-day set of goodies 😀

  7. Hi Mary!
    What a fun idea! My birthday is today so I loved opening up your site and seeing the adorable birthday card! Although I’m a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan, I love the team colors, and yes the cookie cutter is great!!! Hope you had a great weekend at the SU events! Happy stamping!

  8. Love the green and gold, I don’t think he’ll miss it. I almost missed the cookie cutter, though! How cute!

  9. Linda Calahan

    I am a Vikings fan myself but I love the gift package with its secret message – you are one Wile E. Coyote!

  10. As a cookie cutter collector, I love the roadrunner! Too cute! Of course, the card and package are superb, as usual!

  11. Love it!!! your work inspires me soo much!!!

  12. Oh, Mary, you are a sneaky one–using subliminal messages! 🙂 Hope your sister and brother-in-law have great birthdays! I know they will love what you’re sending. Everything is beautiful–even if it’s packaged in colors Ed may wonder about! Love the roadrunner story and the cookie cutter!

  13. super cute! i hope he realizes the green and gold theme-that will be so funny! have a great day and thanks for sharing!

  14. I’m always looking for new and fun cookie cutters…how fun! A great little gift set, and hopefully the green and gold brings you luck in today’s game. You’re in enemy territory!

    Hi Caryl . . . yes, I failed to mention that today’s game is against Phoenix, on my “new” turf. It was quit a thrashing last week to our delight. Guess I can’t let go of my cheesehead heritage!

    Hugs, M

  15. How clever and creative. Love it. Hugs,

  16. Hi Mary!
    Your gifts and cards are packaged beautifully (as usual) but how cool to “slip in” your favorite teams colors!!!
    You inspire me so much, you always have such a great eye for color and a “different ” look on a card or project! Thank you, Thank you!!

  17. Beautiful! Love the coordination of the goodies and packages. Best wishes for happpy birthdays for them! To your BIL, I say “Go Cowboys!!! ” 🙂 Can’t help it but I’m a Dallas Cowboys and am ready for next week’s match-up. 🙂

  18. Colleen Kramer

  19. What a terrific gift for your sis and her hubby, Mary! I love how you matched everything with the goodies (yum!) Very cute and always amazing! XO
