Football Crazy

Don't know where this week has gone or my mojo. I've struggled to make anything at all and I've got several DT projects to make before Christmas and my daughter's birthday next week. I have managed to get all my cards ready for posting though and made a dent in the Christmas shopping so perhaps my week hasn't been completely wasted!
Finally managed to make this for my nephew but will have to hand deliver it as it's his birthday today!


Using a decoupage image and BP from Daisy and Dandelion kit which I've had for some time, sentiment stamp from LOTV, punch from Martha Stewart, scalloped circle dies and numbers from Spellbinders and scroll from Marianne Design. Card is finished with ribbons, button and gems.

Cards for Men - two (2 ribbons, 2 footballs, 2 scalloped circles no 2)
