    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  4. We are Nascar fans, my driver is #22 Joey Lagano but we are also Carl Edwards Fans!

  5. Joy, what a great giveaway. That Library Fonts cart would be a welcome addition to my collection! How sweet of you to offer the flash sale! I have always loved the Atlanta Braves!

  6. When I was younger I loved to watch college basketball especially Indiana. My husband is a Raiders fan so I will sit down and watch them with him some times most often when they are playing our local Chicago Bears. Would LOVE to win the Library Font cart! It is on the top of my "must have" list and that is my wedding anniversary (10/20).

  7. Nascar - Mark Martin has always been my favorite driver ... and of course, I have to cheer for the mountaineers ... Go WVU!
    Thanks for the giveaway!
    Blessings to All!

  9. My really favorite sports team is whatever team my kids are on. Right now my dd and sil are coaching the high school Mock Trial team - although i don't think i'd include that in sports. Last team i followed was OSU's fencing team when my daughter was on the team. I still enjoy keeping up with them.
    Thanks for the coupons yesterday, Joy.
    and thank you for offering such fabulous prizes!

  10. I'd have to say that my favorite team is the Texas A & M Aggies - that's because both my husband and I attended and graduated from there. I used to be a Dallas Cowboys fan, but not so much in the last 10 years. My father-in-law is a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan.
    Thanks for the all the ideas that you post - and the coupons - used one this weekend to get some fabric for some pillows for our patio furniture.

  11. I've been a Redskins fan since the mid 80's. My favorite College teams are Clemson, Alabama and my alma mater Hofstra University.

  12. The Detroit Tigers are my favorite team.

  13. While I'm not to much of a sports fan................I do watch the San Antonio Spurs! Go Spurs! :)

  14. I like baseball and The Detroit Tigers are my team

  15. My favorite team is the Minnesota Twins. My dad used to watch them when I was growing up in a neighboring state, and now I like to cheer them on - especially when they make it to the World Series, which they won in 1987 and 1991!

  16. Green Bay Packers!!!

    Looks like a fun font. I always get stuck in a rut with using the same fonts.

    Shelley K. from Green Bay

  17. I am a Detroit Tigers fan big time I love my Tigers. Thanks for the coupons!!.
    I am excited about your give away fingers crossed here for Library Fonts. WOOO HOOO

  18. I love Hockey so my favorite team is: DALLAS STARS :)
    Susie A.A.

  19. This font looks so cool!
    My hubs is from Green Bay Packers it is! His whole "Man-Fort" is decorated green and gold, plus he has 3 TVs so he can watch all the games (I don't know how he does it) at once on football Sundays! Leaves me plenty of room in the house for my crafting...LOL!

  20. I am so loving this font cartridge! I would be using this all the time!! Since we have lived all our lives in WI, our team of course are the GREEN BAY PACKERS!! My hubby even bought me a nice flat screen tv for my craft room so I can watch the game and craft at the same time!!

  21. Since I live in the Denver area, the Broncos and Rockies. Love to watch both teams play. Joy thanks for sharing all of your projects with us and for the fantastic giveaway.

  22. Those are some great stamps! I'm excited about this new library font cart, it looks awesome! Thanks for the giveaways!

  23. Favorite team is Tennessee Volunteers. NFL - now that Peyton Manning is with the Broncos has to be the Broncos.
    Great stamps.

  24. I don't watch sports myself, but I'll always root for the Detroit Lions and Detroit Tigers because it makes my husband happy. Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. NY Giants have been my team for a very long time!


  26. Favorite team is New Orleans Saints. WHO DAT!!!!!!!

  27. I'm not a sports person, but my husband always tells everyone he is a Packers/Bears fan - having been born in Wisconsin and having lived so long in the Chicago area. He has a tough time when they play each other
    Elaine S.

  28. Do crops count as a sport? If so, then that's my favorite sport! Especially big 2-3 day retreats. I have one coming up the 2nd weekend in November. Out will be my third year & there are always about 400 ladies & it's s blast!

  29. We're a divided household. I like the USC Gamecocks and my husband likes the Clemson Tigers. I like the FSU Seminoles and my kids like the UF Gators. But my favorite sport of all is scrapbooking. Thanks for the opportunity.

  30. I like the Colts and the Bears. But I love the Library fonts cartridge! I like using different fonts, even on the same page.

  31. I am a die hard Colts fan but when our Peyton Manning went to Denver I have two favorite teams!! The only time I root against Broncos is when they play the Colts. Peyton is coming back to Indy this Sunday and it will be very bittersweet for the fans....he is still a much loved player by our state. Such a class act and now we have Andrew Luck who is just as humble and just as classy!


  32. I am a New Orleans Saints fan!!! Who Dat!!! Geaux Saints!!!!!!!!

  33. no real favorite team, but a sports lover just the same!

  34. Not really a sports fan, but always glad when a Michigan or Minnesota team wins.

  35. Love the font cartridge. Watch New Orleans Saints with mmy husband.
    Florence of Louisiana

  36. Being in Michigan going with the Tigers and Lions!

  37. What a catalogue! What options, I love it for so many reasons! Wow, I'd love these choices!

  38. Great catalogue!

  39. Not much of a sport lover except for what ever game my kids or grandkids are playing.

  40. Just has to be Ohio State! Then comes the Cleveland Indians, and maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers.
    I can't believe how many of those stamps I already have, and I love them.

  41. I'm not much into sports. Can take it or leave it but since my husband and the rest of the family roots for The Texans I guess I will too! Library font looks great. Thanks!

  42. Would love to win the Library Font Cartridge. Would be a great addition to my collection. Thank you for sharing the dimensions for the rosette tree. Cannot wait to make.

  43. The Library cartridge is on my wish list. Would be awesome to win, so thank you for the opportunity to win a great cartridge. Love all the things you are creating.

  44. The Library Font is at the top of my wish list! I really like all the fonts and they look like they will cut well in the Cricut. As for sports... I really like soccer and am looking forward to the World Cup. That's when I go sports crazy. Since the games are played at weird times for our time zone, I tape them and won't listen to the sports on news or look at any newsfeeds until I've watched the tape games... HATE spoilers for the World Cup games!! But being Texas Born I have a love/hate relationship with the Dallas Cowboys and with both Aggies and UT grads in the family, I cheer on those two teams also.

  45. Love the catalog. I just received the Autumn/Winter, We love sports in this house starting with the LSU Tigers and the New Orleans Saints. The Library Cartridges is on the top of my wish list. would be awesome to win

  46. I love attending baseball games and because I am from fav. sports team is the MN Twins!

  47. no we really don't have a favorite sport team my husband seem to cheer on who ever he thinks is good that season. thanks for a chance to win another fab cartridge.
