Well I got to the end of this exciting week and now I have to settle back down to create something out of it all! I decided to use this cute little footballer from The Paper Shelter
- called Soccer Star - available here for my DT card at My Time to Craft this week.
It is also a card for my footie mad nephew who turned 18 on Thursday. He is an absolutely mad Newcastle United fan so when I saw this image it just seemed perfect for his card - he appreciates anything black and white and not much else!
Also as our Crafty Mamma at MTTC has similar tastes
-this ones for you too Shell hehe.
(I have to do something to get round you saying as I cheated for this DT card!!!)
The challenge over at
this week is
I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of dry embossing - I only have four folders and two of those are Christmas ones! But I do some wet embossing from time to time. I had a tidy up and move around of my craft stuff a few weeks ago and now I have no idea where my heat gun is
- should have left it alone - I know where I used to keep it!
So as I didn't really have anything to emboss with that would suit this card -I have to confess to doing a bit of a cheat - I used card that is already embossed - it is a Tim Holtz card with a heavy weave efmbossed on it - and it was the perfect colour for this card
This is what I did....
