What little boys are made of :-)


After three days of teal cards my brain needed a little break (and a change of colour!), I'm looking forward to my regular scrapbook class tonight at Scrapbook Sisters as well, as I'm (shock horror!) actually getting quite a few finished of late!!  So I'm looking forward to a new challenge tonight :-)

This card is a quick one I made using Footballing Jack.  I am very short on boy images and I think I might just have to treat myself to one or two more in the range, as he's a bit of a cutie :-).  I still struggle with boys/mens cards though!

The papers are from one of the Forever Friends packs that I bought last year - the only reason I bought this pack was for my son to make his Dad a card as there is an image of a bear in a blue car and the last three letters on the number plate are the same as on HB's number plate, which was odd!  I've had to cut the papers about a bit to lose the pre-printed images, but shhh don't tell anyone as I don't think it's that obvious :-)

The twill across the middle is also doctored as it has "it's a boy" printed on it, but only on one side - I was going to use ribbon but think this works better as it looks more like a shoe lace.

The football is a die-cut which my friend Julie cut for me, a couple of buttons and all done :-)

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges
