Game Day is On!

If you are an American football fan then you already know this week starts the regular season. Be prepared for the entranced look on faces for the rest of the year, a lot like this card I made for the Stampendous July Catalog release. 

I think I'm more likely to be the one lost in a popcorn bowl than lost in the game, but that's what makes Game Day so much fun. We all have something to do!

Here's how I made this card!
