He's Football Crazy

Evening Folks
This is my second post for today.  Scroll down for a really special post and challenge.

Well, it's been a long week so far at work and it's only Tuesday lol.  It seems that the more you do the more they want at the moment.
My daughter went back to Uni yesterday so it's a bit quiet round here at the moment.  This is her last year and I think it is going to be a busy one for her.  But I am sure she will still find some time for a bit of partying along the way lol.

This evenings card share is another male card.  This time for my nephews birthday at the end of the month.  I have two nephews and their birthdays are one month apart.  With requests from my sister to make cards for them plus the ones I need to make them it feels like I have overdosed on male cards at the moment.

James is mad on football.  If he is not playing football then he is watching it.  His favourite team is Everton and he has been to several of their matches with his Grandad.
I used a lovely stamp from Papermania for the image.  I decided not to colour the image but just stamp and emboss it.  Cut it out using one of my dies and distressed the edges with some faded jeans distress ink.  The checked paper was from a paper pad by Paper Cellar and the football paper is from Wild Rose Studio.  The sentiment was another stamp (have lost the packaging so not sure who it is by).  Kept the embellishements very simple with the addition of some twine and a couple of football boot buttons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - use sketch
Kaboodle Doodles - Babies and/or children (made for my nephew)
Celebrate the Occasion - Birthday (use twine and at least one button)

Thanks for popping by.

Is it possible to OD on male based cards? No!!! I think this is great for a football or soccer lover (LOL). Hope your daughter enjoys her last year - my oldest is in her last year at college too (and my youngest is in her last year of High School). Hugz!
