It's me again, tired but happy. Got home from Malmö late last night after having watched my favourite team in the world play, the National team of Sweden and the sport is handball! Since 1988 I have been dreaming of watching them live and finally I got the chance to do that. Sneak that I am, I gave the tickets to my boys as a Christmas gift and off we went. We lost by one goal but I have seen them play and it was such fun. It couldn't get better as the team we played against was Denmark, another one of favourite teams. They have amazing players too. Real fun and now I hope to see yet another game in April when they come to Växjö which is only about 100 km drive instead of 300.
This time I have yet another card for a boy and I have made something simular before but this is a new one, well actually I made two of them for my boys' friends. I have used and image from Crafters Companion called "Lets play football" and coloured it with my Letraset markers. I have also used a whole bunch of die cuts as I love the back drop in the shape of a soccer ball or football if your over in Europe as I am. :) The colour scheme use is the colours of my boys' team Lindsdal. And as the boys' has birthdays and parties to go to... well, I better be prepared.
To make the foot ball I have used Joanna Sheen's die for patch work the middle size I think it is, wish I had the bigger one. And then I spend quite some time die cutting left over / scrapps of black and white card stock. After that it's time to start to glue all the pieces together. This also take some time as it's no fun when the glue shows up in the edges of each piece. But it's so worth it all when it's done. Once it's all dry I use yet another die cut in a circlar shape to cut the ball out. Taadaa! A classic black and white soccer ball is born!
