Football Crazy


On Everybody Art Challenge there's a photo to inspire your design of card. After some thought I decided to use this cute LOTV and he works really well with the red and black colour combo.
I had a bit of sort through and found some really old papers no idea who makes them they were probably brought several years ago.
Now looking at it I'm not sure on the white dotty ribbon but I didn't want to use a black ribbons reminds to much of sympathy cards.
Here's the pic of the photo inspiration and don't forget to check out the amazing creations from the Design Team..

So yesterday I managed to sort out the Cricut Gypsy and there was a tricky moment while it was updating my Internet connection broke but the end result was a word cut on the Cricut. I do need some practice and all my cartridges need loaded into it but I think the trick will be to tell myself I can only cut on the cricut by using it.
Then my Sis took me to see our Mum and we popped off for some retail therapy so not much time for card making and the mice are still waiting.
Back later with my High Hopes Challenge and to close the candy.

  10. Hi Debby well as a staunch Blues supporter I have tried to switch off from the Red but I really do like the layout of this card - is the LOTV a stamp? I have some die-cuts but as I do a lot of footie cards I would quite like this stamp x

  24. Hi Debby, yes it does take time updating the Gypsy but I hope you manage to play with it, I find the screen is a bit small to really gauge the size of your cut.
    Fabulous card love that image and the papers are gorgeous, you can enter it into the Cards for Men challenge as its anything goes this fortnight. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx
