Cards for Men challenge 20...

Well the last 2 weeks seemed to fly by! Our puppy, Bryn, is still keeping us really busy- especially when he got a upset stomach from eating clematis leaves in the garden! Sorry I didn't get around to visiting our entries until yesterday, but better late than never! For our new challenge at Cards for Men we are looking for your men or boy's cards on a Sport theme, so that should be a nice easy one!
My cousin is a mad, keen Liverpool fan so this is the card I made for him. I used the footballer from the Papermania 'Man's World' clear set, coloured with my Promarkers. The word stamp in the background is a wood mounted one from Funstamps. I have overstamped the red card with some mini football images but they don't really show up on the photo. Finally I used a personalised sentiment which I made on the computer and 3 tiny die cut stars.

Our sponsor is Peachy Keen Stamps. Check out the Cards for Men blog for details of the prize and to see the great cards made by the rest of the DT.


I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Hi Alison sorry to hear poor Bryn has been suffering with an upset tummy, ours has got a limp in her front leg and that is also a bit worrying though it doesnt seem to stop her jumping everywhere.
Stunning card love your image and the fabulous papers. hugs Shirleyx

Just think your card is just so cute, love your image and the colors you used are just perfect. Did you make the sentiment? Sorry I have not been here sooner. My grand daughter broke her arm yesterday playing on the monkey bars at the park and it happened so fast. She will be just fine.
Take care, Pat
