Happy RACE DAY oh and some cards too :)

Happy RACE DAY!!!
I'm a little sad I won't be sitting in the stands for the Daytona 500 today BUT I will be there for the July race :)
Denise and I made more racing cards to celebrate this BIG day!
Mine uses Jen's SFYTT...except my image panel is a little wider than in her sketch.
I figured Jeff could use some GOOD LUCK! So I pulled out the cute SASI stamp set called Year of Sweets 1. I dug through my stamps to find a checkered flag and luckily I had the ATV set from H & M Stamps. Unfortunately it is a retired set though :( Sorry!
The #24 was done using the JustRite Stamps.
We'd love for you to play along with us and if you upload to SCS use keyword Nascar1 so we can check out your cool card!
Stamps: Year of Sweets 1, JustRite Stamps, ATV; Cardstock: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, White; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, 1/2" circle punch, Real red ribbon, Eyelet Border punch, Rhinestones, Dimensionals
I've been wanting to make one of these card holder totes since Julie Buhler did a tutorial. After seeing Renee Van Stralen do one...I had to get at it!
Mine uses the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set along with the Sweet Always DP.
Here are the four cards I've made to put inside. Fairly simple as I am using up the last of my Sweet Always DP.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Now go get ready to cheer on Jeff Gordon ;)

Wow! You come all the way to Daytona for the races?! That's a dedicated fan! My husband was working there this weekend so the kids and I tagged along. We got to go to the truck race on friday then we hung out at the hotel and the beach on saturday before heading back to Jacksonville saturday night. We are hoping to be able to go down again for the July race, but I don't think we will actually be able to go to the race.
I love the card designs and the card holder. Julie has some awesome tutorials!
