Good morning crafters, I hope I find you well.
The sun has been blazing the last couple of days and looks set fair for the next couple of days.
The footy season is coming to a close around these parts, my team hopefully will be in the division 1 playoffs, fingers crossed for a Wembley win this year.
So rather appropriately the theme for this week's challenge at Cardz4Guyz is-


So anything to do with soccer or American football is OK with us.
I went straight to my LOTV stamps for this card, choosing very appropriately - Football Crazy.
Another of their stamps that is no longer stocked. :(

I must admit I went a little ball crazy with this design using that part of the stamp to create my own DP and added embellishments. This will go into the stock of cards for Ben's parties. Nich will hate the colour way but husband will be more tolerant!
I used the latest sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout.
I coloured the little chap using Copics and added some grass for him to play on! The stripey DP is NitWits, sentiment Woodware and '5' MFT little numbers.

OK, that's about it. Pop over and check out the rest of the DT and GDs for more inspiration then join in.

I would also like to join in at -

(Hope number in the singular will be OK. Loving the new look)

Cutie Pie Challenge - All about the boys
Allsorts - Quick and Easy Does it
