Are You Ready for a Super Bowl Sale????

Because Hambo Stamps has a special fondness for PIGskin, they are celebrating Super Bowl Weekend (February 6 & 7) by offering 30% off ALL in-stock regular-priced stamps (rubber & digital) and cling cushion! (The discount will not apply to stamps on their "Retiring" page which is already discounted a minimum of 50%) Quantities of the designs are limited, so all orders will be filled in the order in which they're received.

PLUS - They are offering a chance to win your entire order FREE! When you place your order, give them your best guess as to the FINAL point total of the game - that is, the total of points that both teams have scored, added together. The first person to guess the exact total or come closest will receive their stamps free of charge! Please note that while the 30% off sale runs for two entire days, only orders received prior to kick-off will be in the running for the free stamps.

Just follow this link for all of the sale specifics and to get started! Super Bowl Sale

Now with all that said...

I am a HUGE football fan, so in honor of the Super Bowl, I have used the Hambo Stamps "Football Boy" to create my own special work of art! I took the stamp and used my "mirror image" flat stamp so I could use two of them facing each other and colored them up to reflect the two teams playing.

I have been wanting to try the "recessed window" technique I saw on Splitcoast some time ago and thought it would be perfect for this card. I took some liberties to change the window opening/card size, so I hope you enjoy!
