Good morning all.  Yuck, not liking Monday this week, mind you I have just come back from a lovely week off.  We went off in our camper van to a beautiful site at St Leonards in Dorset, not far from Ringwood.  We were definitely lucky with the weather and I have come back all relaxed and chilled out. 
Of course now I am back at work - yuck. Hee hee.  Truly I do enjoy my job but would much prefer to be retired and enjoying it.

Today we start a new challenge at Get Creative Challenge.  

Our theme for this challenge is 'Must Have Stars'

Our Sponsor for this challenge is

Prize will be 3 images of the winners choice.

I chose a super digi image called SoccerPro from our Sponsor 'Cute as a Button'.  Like a lot of crafter's I don't do many male cards, most probably because I love putting flowers on my cards and I never think a flower on a male card looks quite right. 
 This digi stamp is so useful for young and older men because you can personalise it to a particular football club that the recipient supports.

Not being at all interested in football I went for red and white, England football colours I am told!  I did however enjoy colouring the little chap in and making the card.  I just know he is a digi stamp I will use again and again.

I used my chameleon pens to colour him in.  I have also used some backing paper which I printed off from a serif craft artist digi kit called 'Junior Bumper'  I have also embossed the black card with an embossing folder of footballs.  My sentiment was printed out in serif and then cut out using a shape from 'Brian' my BSC.  The mat was also cut out from the same shape but I just increased the size by 5mm.

THANK YOU for stopping by.  See you soon and do take care./
