Karens Doodles 19th challenge



Well it's Wednesday again and it's time for another challenge at Karen's Doodles UK - this week we'd like to see some different shapes... although I think I've cheated again a bit, because mine's more of a different fold than a different shape!  I've made this card for Morgan's teacher - Morgan asked for a footall themed card, because his teacher is also the head of P.E. and really loves his sports.

I've used this cheeky little footballer image, available here, coloured with promarkers.  The papers are Doodlebug, with coredinations (black) and DCWV (green) cardstock.  The lettering was cut with the Sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies, sentiment tag is a nellie snellen die with a computer generated sentiment, and the ribbon was coloured to match with a promarker.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
Well, this is probably the last card I'll be blogging before I go on holiday, as we leave early on Friday morning and I've got lots to do before we go.  We're off to Cornwall, to stay in a little cottage near Bodmin Moor, and I can't wait!  I'm not looking forward to the journey though - around 6hrs in a car with a 2yr old and a 7yr old, should be great fun.... NOT!!!

What a fab card, love the fold, is it an A4 or bigger?!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday, we used to travel at night just so the kids would be tired and sleep for most of it!

Wow Wow and wow! I love this! You always have such lovely papers. I would love to raid your stash! Have a great holiday, I must agree with you though, the journey is not going to be fun. I find the 31/2 hour trip from near Cardiff to my brothers in Lincolnshire a nightmare so I feel for you! Still, you will have a great time when you get there, have fun!
