LIM - Things that Move!!

Happy saturday everyone!!

I've has a lovely day out in Leeds, shopping and lunching with my aunty and cousin today!! How else can this day get better?? Why its the day the new LIM challenge is launched of course. Saturday's have never been the same since I started participating in this challenge!! I love to wake up and log on to see what the new challenge is!!

This week Chrissie and Mandi want to see projects with a theme and the theme is.... things that move!! Now, I though outside of the box a bit with this theme and came up with a football. Now I know technically they only move once they have been kicked, so fingers crossed, I hope it counts!!

I made a football themed card for my hubbie and used the colours of the team he supports.... 'Leeds United'.

An arty farty close up shot of the sentiment....

...and the inside shot. I made another wallet style card so I had a little slot to put some money in. My husband is so difficult to buy for, so I learnt years ago, it's just easier to give him money.. and to be honest I think he prefers it!! Love this cute sentiment as well, it matches the theme perfectly!!

I loved making this card so much that I decided to do a few more, very similar one's for my father in law's and brothers birthday's. They both support Leeds United too, so perfect!!

No wallet style inside this time..... just plain and simple decorating!


CS: SU Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White, Textured card from my stash

Stamps: SU Cheer and Wishes, Football stamps from Elzybells (Retired)

Tools: SU Scalloped border, Circle and Decorative Label punches, SU Square Lattice Embossing folder, Versamark and Versafine Onyx Black ink pads

Misc: Sentiment from Craftwork Cards

Sorry for the photo heavy post, hope you've managed to stay with me and like my cards for this weeks LIM challenge!! I can't wait to see what you all create for this weeks theme!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
