We are having a short break in our caravan, which is near where my nieces and their families live. (Unusually, we have a strong wifi signal here which is a bonus, as I can do some blog visiting when it's raining!) After totally losing track of the date, I suddenly remembered that it's my niece's hubby's birthday the day after we get home and I hadn't made a card for him! It would be too late to post one when I get home and there was no way I was going to give him a shop bought card. So, as I keep a basic craft kit in the caravan as well as lots of offcuts, die cuts and card blanks, I knew I could get a card up together somehow.
We just happened to call into one of my favourite craft shops on the way here and I bought this Sweet Dixie 'Football and Boot' die as I make a lot of football themed card. My niece's hubby supports a team which plays in red and white and I found a snippet of red card already embossed with footballs and a snippet of white embossed card to go with the football die cut. The only thing I didn't have was a sentiment stamp or ink pad, but I managed to find a sheet of Happy Birthday peeloffs in a local art store. The photo isn't great as it's taken on my phone inside the caravan - it was too windy to take the photo outside! The red is not really that bright! LOL!
I am joining in the following challenges:
We picked up our great nieces and great nephew, aged 6, 7 and 8, after school today and brought them back to the caravan. After a visit to the play area and polishing off a plate of fish fingers, chips and beans, they spent a lovely hour making cards with all my bits and pieces before we took them home.
