Keepy - Uppy!

I have met myself coming back the last few days, not least because this viral throat/coldy thing refuses to go away completely and I am swinging between times of feeling fine and times of feeling like something very heavy has decided to sit itself on my chest! Darn nuisance!

I've also played a few games this week and today I was organising and running a competition just up the coast from where I live - and - it's been a lovely day, we even saw lots of sunshine.
So crafty time has been at a bit of a premium this week and I have only managed to make a couple - and both of them are with the new 'Little Masterpieces' releases from LOTV.

This tri fold card was quick to do - the card is a pre cut and scored blank which is actually called a 'Baby handbag' card kit - 
- which if you're anything like me and completely incapable of measuring stuff properly are the best things since sliced bread! All you have to do is open the pack, fold them and add whatever you want! This pack also gives you extra circles and die cut scalloped edges so I got some K and Co green paper which has a  grid design on it - have no idea why it reminded me of a football field but it did...... . and decorated the card and the scalloped circles with it. 

I cut out the footie image (isn't he great? Budding Becks I think!) with a nestie then layered it up inside the scallop and die cut frame. I just added a teeny bow of black and white twine on the front.
Inside I added a some embellishments (football boots and 3d footballs)which I picked up in a Hobbycraft sale.
No sentiment as yet because I think I may personalise it for a little person that I know!

Hi Viv, sorry that you are still not hundred percent... I am sorry that I have not visited in so many days. Will try and be regular as I do miss blogging so. The desk top is repaired now and has a different operating system - Mac now. So I just gotta get used to that which I will soon.
Thanks for that link about posting photos. Kind of you - trust blog buddies to show that kind of love.

Now to this card - love it's sporty look. So different from your feminine cards.

You will see me more often,
