Have been unable to find 10 minutes to myself this week - and even more annoying is I have some new stamps and I haven't been able to play.......and as I'm currently in the middle of packing a suitcase for a 10 day trip starting on Sunday it's unlikely that they will see ink until I get home!
Am going to try and have a 'messy' evening tonight (if I get myself organised!).
So this is a quick share
A commisioned stepper card for a footie mad boy (one after my own heart - LOL) - made in ultra quick time and hope it doesn't show!
Image matted onto black and white card, papers from my stash also matted onto black card.
The boots and the footballs were on a sticker set I bought a long time ago - the footballs are made from plastic so they're dimensional.
Stamped the sentiment and then just chopped it to resemble something like a flag shape and fixed it with a bit of black and white twine.
Uber fast make but the person who ordered it loved it - thank goodness.

Challenges -
Daring Cardmakers - Football related
Creative Romance - 1 for the Boys
Crafty Catz - Black/White/ I other colour (green)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes.

Back to the suitcase - will be along later to visit you all, thanks for dropping in. x

FAB stepper card Viv. I think shaped cards go down well as they are so different.

What DO you mean about your new stamps not seeing ink BEFORE you go away? What IS the matter with you? Get them inked up IMMEDIATELY and take the stamped images away with you for some therapeutic colouring-in! Darn Sarn has spoken!

Hugs, Darn Sarn xxx

Certainly doesn't look like a 'quick' card Viv, it looks fabulous. I love the image and wonderful detailing.
I hope you enjoy your messy evening and your trip away.

Hi Viv your life seems to be as busy as mine is just now.
Love the card, and all the ones I have missed are gorgeous too. I think I have had half a day crafting in I don't know how many weeks. Good job I was ahead with Mo's.
Have a great holiday xx
