Football Crazy …and candy news!

 

 

 

Morning all, I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend whatever you’re doing

I have a boys card to share today for a change   …but first I have news about our new FABULOUS blog candy event!!

lotvblogcandyevent880

Starting tomorrow we will have blog candy to give away EVERY SINGLE DAY whoo hoo!

Some days there will be a linky and other days the winner will be drawn from the comments. We’ll be back to doing our popular Theme Thursdays and there will be some sketches to give you a bit of inspiration, there might even be a little mini challenge occasionally or a quiz thrown in for good measure to vary things a bit!

We obviously want to encourage new visitors to the blog but we also want to reward those of you who already visit and comment regularly. You’ll have to stop by each day to see what’s up for grabs!

It will start tomorrow and here’s a little banner to put on your own blogs…

Onto today’s card and this was made by our Becky

Becky used Football Crazy which is one of our older stamps but still a very popular and useful one…

Football Crazy - Becky

 

 

That’s it from me, enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I’ll see you tomorrow with our first candy giveaway and also a new challenge for February

  12. I deleted my last comment as I made so many mistakes, I decided to start again, lol. I love Becky's card and this is one my favourite and most used images. It can be vintage style or any football team colours you like, great for boys and men. Really looking forward to tomorrow's posting and can't wait to see the new paper pads.

  23. That´s some great news for sure, and I´m also popping the link to my sidebar for sure.
    I really love todays card, and better get looking more carefully fior boys cards too now, as we´re just expecting our very first grandson here in May now, after having had 7 granddaughters through the last 19 years, so it´ll be really different with a boy now, but certainly also a lot of fun, but I´m afraid, I´ll have to learn all over now, not to make everything so girly he he.

  57. Love the card, that stamp is a must for me as both my boys are football mad and it is so hard to do cards for boys their age. I used your other football stamp for my sons birthday last year and he loved it so much he still has it up in his room. I wondered what to do this year and now I know. I was even able to do the kit in his football teams colours and the football was a wonderfull embelishment. I love that your stamps can be used for all ages and for both girls and boys. Such a lovely card Regards Maria
