another birthday boy!!!!

Well its definately birthday time for our family at the moment!!!! i have made so many birthday cards recently bt i don't mind, i love it!!!!Today is my oldest nephews birthday. I used a lily-boo's circle boys for this one as Devon enjoys his foootball. I covered a couple more beermats with some blue paper, I needed the card to be sturdy as I wanted to attach 5 one pound coins onto it!! ( they are hidden under the little football stamps on vellum!!) I coloured the little footballer with my new promarkers ( i am still playing!!!) and then added some litle wooden letter stickersfrom the stash!!!!!I cannot believe Devon is 11, it doesn't seem that long since he was playing at aunty Lou's on a saturday zooming around my house in his baby walker!!!!

oh no, in my rush to get this on my blog i didn't realise i had forgotten to write about the challenge i have entered this card in!!!! I made this one with the allsorts challenge blog latest challenge in mind. This time it is for a boys birthday/male birthday,pop over and take part yourself everbody!!! Just right for me as I feel like i have been making boys cards for ages!!!!!
Thankyou for dropping by!! xxx

  3. Hi Lou
    What a great card - fab idea to use 'beer mats' and to disguise the coins with footballs - well done. My son will be 11 this month also and he too loves his football so might have to 'borrow' this idea lol!!!

  5. Lou this is fab. Your colouring is amazing and the stamps are just adorable. We could do with some cricket ones. Great idea for hidding the money.
