Football Crazy

Good evening

It has been so hot here today and as much as I love the sun it was too hot to be in the garden so I decided to stay indoors and make a card.  Jamie was happy to be in playing on the Playstation and Chloe has gone to her friend's for a sleepover. 

On Sunday two of Jamie's school friends are having a football birthday party so when I ordered some of the new release LOTV stamps earlier this week I also bought this cute little footballer as I thought he would be perfect for Jamie's friends.

At first I struggled because I couldn't find any suitable papers but then I had a 'lightbulb moment' and remembered that I had bought some Sharon Duncan CD's a few years ago and one of them was a football theme.  I had a rummage through my CD's and found it (think this is the first time it has been used!) and the papers were perfect.

Image - LOTV Football Crazy coloured with Copics
Papers - Sharon Duncan CD (Football Crazy)
Sentiment - Above CD 


Sir Stampalot - Punch It
Papertake - Fun Fun Fun
The Crafty Pad - Male card
Simon Says Stamp - Male card

That's all from me because Jamie wants me to take the dog for a walk so he can ride his bike.  When I get back think I might indulge in a glass or two of wine :o)

Hi Lisa

The heat of the sun is a pefect excuse to craft and what a lovely card as well.

I made a footie card today as well today, I am thinking we are probably going to see a good few on this theme in the coming weeks, or not depending how well we do.

Thank you for joining in our Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
