Less Work, More Football

Morning campers.... it's decidedly chilly here today.
In the space of a week, I have gone from summer dresses and sandals
 to leggings, jumpers and boots.
I have had to issue strict instructions to hubby, NOT to put the heating on.. 
I don't want him getting used to the warmth!!! lol**

Anyhoo... here's today's card, for a friend's little boy
I'm not sure how old he is, but when I find out, I will add a die cut number to the little tag.


My footballer is coloured with Copics, with some glossy accents on the football.
His jersey is paper pieced.
The grass is a bit of a mess - it's the first time I've tried it. 
I don't think my colours are right at all, but once I'd started it there was no going back!!

I love this one a lot. The best details are paper piecing of the jersey and that cute ribbon.
Have a wonderful day, Caroline! :)
