Craft Rocket Challenge ( #23) I'm back!

I have mynew laptop! But it's a little bit scary! Partly because it's new and partly because it's Windows 10
This fortnights challenge at Craft Rocket Challenge is "Anything Goes" 
My design is a birthday card I made for my future son in law's birthday yesterday He is a massive Tottenham Hotspur footie fan In the past I have made him cards with the usual football/Spurs ideas and I really didn't know what to make this time (I have done the beer theme too)
I saw a sample on a recent John Lockwood for Creative Expressions and it sparked an idea

I used my new favourite die set - Sue Wilson's Perspective range I cut the HAPPY in navy card using the word and smaller frame I then mounted it onto white card using the larger frame from the set. I cut the flags in the team's new strip colours - clean and simple and will use this idea for other male football mad friends. Next time I will arrange the flags differently, as if they're tails of a rosette. Finished card is 5x7 inches.

I hope that you are all well and thank you for your support and patience. Over the next few days I will endeavour to catch up with your blogs. I will be scolling back on my own blog to see if any of you have left questions that need answering
Take care

  6. Hi Karen
    Glad you're back in technoland lol!
    What a great idea for a footie fan. I did think when I first saw the colours it was a German theme lol!
    Hope little Oscar is doing well.
