Football Crazy

Now when I got my new printer I had to buy some digi images to see if it would work, Ok I know I had some anyway but I had the perfect excuse. This chap was one I brought from Karen Doodles, the only thing I dislike about these images is working out what is the best size.
The papers are the new BG Oliver nice and grungy for a boy and I used the sketch this week on Papertake Weekly although my mat using the zig-zag punch should be larger, it wasn't till I cut it did I realise I made it too small. Buttons are using a punch and punching out one plain and patterned and sticking together, then using my cropadile to make the holes and I used some of that cotton twine I brought at Newbury.
I still too hot here in the SouthEast but while I write this its hot and drizzling but its not going to last long cos its going to be hot and sunny later.
