It has been a hard week with lots of colds going around the house. Thought I was out of it when it started again late on Sunday, so yet another day with fever and running nose. Might have used more energy than I got and that's why it's breaking out a second time in four days. Just have to "like" it I guess.
Today starts a new challenge over at PFP and the theme set for this week is embossing of any kind, dry or wet that is. This was a really hard card to finish, not because I don't like the them, but because I had to redo it three times. My first brilliant idea with wet embossed pieces in black and white to build a soccer ball didn't work out. It looked fabb and lovely till the pieces started to pop off my card. The glue didn't like the mix of plastic feeling and paper. LoL Oh well, I will give that a go again when I have a little more time.
So instead of a soccer ball shaped card I ended up with this. Now it might look strange with a "6" and a winning soccer champion but the boy who it was for turned 6 the other day. The image is from the Paper Shelter and is of course coloured with my Letraset markers. The dp's are from Magnolia and the star punches use is from Wood ware. The grass is made with a die from CC designs I think.
Sponsoring us this week is Polkadoodles, but I don't know what the prize is so you have to go and check out the challenge blog to find out. I am sure it's a great prize!
And as I have fairly little time at the moment I also take the chance to promote the World Cup challenge that TPS has on facebook. It will last all the way to the end of the World Cup this summer when we know which country is the best the world when it comes to this fun game! Can you guess my winner? Yepp! Even if they hardly didn't make it to the WC, I think France will stand as winners when it's over. You know we can't all believe that Brasil or Agentina will win. LoL
Ok, signing off for now and hope you'll join us over at PFP this week.
Love n hugs
