Super Striker

Good morning everyone:) Are we really into the first week of March already, it seems forever since I last posted, but here I am back again, and hope to be able to blog a little more often.... my hubby retired recently and we are trying to get into some kind of routine lol!! it is a bit hit and miss with my crafting at the moment so I'm just taking one day at a time...  I have managed to make a card for my grandsons 7th Birthday... just don't know where the time has gone since he was first born... he is really into football at the moment so thought this cute image from LOTV fitted the bill perfectly.

Also it's another great challenge over at Papertake Weekly The challenge this week is Anything Goes with an option of using flowers if you like... No flowers from me this week though, although I did think about adding a few daisies in the grass, then thought better of it lol!!



A peak at the inside


The image is called Super Striker and I have coloured him with my inktense pencils, I finally had a chance to use this lovely die from MFT called chicken wire. I think it makes a fabulous net with a little cheese cloth behind it. I decoupaged the football to make it stand out a little more too but you can't really see it in the photo's. I used the pieces from the chicken wire die to mount Liam's name on, they were just the right size!

LOTV are sponsoring us this week and there's a £10 voucher for the lucky winner!! 


Hope you will join us this week, we would love to see all your gorgeous cards.  Do pop along to the main blog and check out what the rest of the team have done!!

That's it from me for now, have a lovely week and take care:)
Love and Hugs,

  14. I’m sure Liam will or did adore this, Marjorie! What a superb boys card and so clever to use the chicken wire die to make the goal AND as mats for the lettering! Love it! xxx

  15. I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
