Crafting for all Seasons #46 Dies and Punches

Good afternoon all. I had a bit of a lazy day yesterday after my body decided I'd been overdoing things and shut down on me - when this happens I just have to sleep it off. Apparently I missed a gorgeous morning whilst having my lie in! Got a bit of hoovering done and made The Hairy Dieters Spanish Chicken for tea (which was yummy) and did some digi scrapping....then it was time for bed again!

Today it's time for a new challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Dies and Punches". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. We're being sponsored by Kenny K and the DT were given images to use although I've used one I won recently. The card is for one of my nephew's who has a birthday next week and as always I had to go look him up on the family tree to make sure I got the number right!! (Anyone else have to do this or is it just me!!).

My image is called "Soccer" and I've coloured with promarkers and diecut with one of my new wonky rectangles from Spellbinders. Green backing paper is from Wild Rose Studio, plaid paper is from Jak Heath. Football is leftover from a decoupage sheet. Sentiment, peel off and gems are from my stash.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the girls inspiration, you won't be disappointed.
