I'm Back!!!

Hi guys,

Oh I have missed you all so much.  I am back..... YAY!!!!!

In terms of how I'm feeling?  Well I can just about sit now for a decent period of time so that means I can CRAFT AGAIN!!!  I am so behind with my cards.  I have 2 urgent orders and one is complete and below.  This card is made especially for a footy mad young lad, he loves Lionel Messi and Barcelona AND he is going to be 10!!!  This card just turned out lovely, I am sure he will love it.

This is the front of the card.  The boy who the card is for is a huge Messi fan, however I couldn't find a decent picture of him for the card.  Then I found this shirt with the number 10 on it.  As the boy is going to be 10, I had to work with this.  The rest of the card stemed from here.

This is the inside of the card.  A clipart of a football pitch.  I added 3 gems to the centre and goaly box so that when the card was stood up in it's display position the top had something to lean against and stand in the correct position.

This is the card in it's display position.

Another pic of the card in it's display position.

This card was great to make as it is a completely different style for me and I always struggle making cards for boys/men however this is one of my favourite male cards.  I hand cut the footballs from a small bit of scrap dp (Forever Friends-For Him).  I cute the sentiment with my Cricut E, I alternated the maroon and navy to match the Barcelona kit.  I love it.  What do you think? 

This card is being centered into:

A Spoon Full of Sugar: #122 Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz: #38 Anything Goes
Allsorts: #71 Plain and Simple
Crafty Sentiments Designs: #36 Use your scraps (footballs cut from scrap dp)
One Stich at a Time: #32 Anything Goes

So good to be back!  Hopefully if I carry on as I have been, trying to relax and rest, then you should see loads more of me in the coming days x Take care everyone x
