Lil' old Me

West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Special Order card

I was asked to make a special birthday card for a friend's Father-in-Law for his 70th birthday.  I find it really hard making cards for people I haven't met so I asked what he likes and was advised football.  Now I know how funny men can be about their "Team colours" so I thought a Vintage type card would be best and I remembered I had this Vintage footballer so I coloured him with sepia colours and used papers and cardstock in shades of brown with inks to match.

All card, DSP, Sentiment, letters, numbers and flags with punches from STAMPIN UP.
Colours used for card, ink and DSP Crumb Cake, Chocolate chip and Very Vanilla card

The footballer is from CUDDLY BUDDLY.
