Football Crazy

Good Morning Everyone, 
I've just got a quick card to share today. I have so many boys birthdays coming up, I thought I'd better make a start.
This one is using 'Football Crazy' from Lili of the Valley
I've coloured him with my promarkers. Now, don't look too closely at the circles, I had to use a compass and a pair of scissors!! 



The background papers are from Craft Creations and Forever Friends.
I used a Marianne Creatables fence die and stamped a couple of extra footballs and a sentiment.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Make it Monday - Linky Party
Lillies Little Fairies - Not a Square
Creative Inspirations - For the Guys
Crafty Catz - Anything but square
Pile it on - Fancy Folds

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your comments. I really appreciate them. Lorraine x
