Another card for the stash

Morning all. 
It's going to be a busy day here on the blog, but first off we have a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
It was my turn to choose the theme so I chose:-


Here is my card, 

based on this sketch.

Silly me got my circle sizes in the wrong place but I hope you'll forgive that slip up!
My daughter asked me for a few more birthday cards for her stash as the last round of my grandson's party invites had depleted her stash! So I reached for a couple of my fave stamps from LOTV, Football Crazy and Football Trio.
After stamping the little footballer and one of the elements from the trio, I coloured them with Copics then fussy cut the footballer and used a die for the goalie save. 
On a panel of white card, I die cut the apertures and then doodled a border around each opening with a black fine liner. On a white base card I added a panel of corrugated green card that's been sat in my stash for years then added a couple of strips of punched grass across the bottom of the larger opening.
This panel was then added over the green panel and the little footballer and goalie circle added. A die cut 8 was placed into the remaining opening and a stamped banner added to complete.

For more sketch inspiration check out the rest of the team here, then why not join in.

Hope you are keeping safe and warm as we suffer the 'Beast from the East' as this cold spell is being called here in the UK. I feel sorry for our lambs which started their appearance rather earlier than anticipated last Wednesday. The smallest look so vulnerable but the mum's are doing their best to keep them safe!

These were the first 3 lambs, found snuggled under the hedge early morning. This triplet was a bit smaller than his siblings as well as being a bit reluctant to leave his warm spot.
Whilst OH was moving these 3 to the shed, he came across a couple of newly born twins and a very  protective ma.

The triplets were taken up to the main farm sheds but the twins are now back in the field with mum. Lambing continues apace so we will be receiving more as the lambing sheds fill up and more space is needed for the wee ones. Some are definitely more up to the outdoors than others.

Joining in over at:-


  1. This will be very welcome I am sure, the stamps suit that sketch really well and it looks as though you kept that corrugated card just for this card!! I feel for those new born lambs if the bitter wind we have down here is anything to go by...no snow yet though xx

  2. You did a great job! I like the circles and textures! Thanks for joining us at The Male Room Challenge Blog!

  3. I think this is super for a little guy - such a fun image and personalised too. Thanks so much for playing along with our Winter Olympics/Sports theme at The Male Room. Deborah, DT.
