70th Football card

I made this card for my Sister to give to her FIL who is a Newcastle United supporter. I made the card from a piece of card I printed with the black stripes and cut out on my craft robo. I also cut out the football with the robo. It took me ages as robo wasn't behaving well. The grass paper is from Joanna Sheen's Fabulous Flowers cd and I found the NUFC logo online.
Had so much trouble with my craft robo that DH decided to order me a KNK for an early birthday present. Problem is I now have to move from my craft/office/dinning room corner into the spare room upstairs, which needs clearing out beforehand. I have run out of room where I am. So off to do that before I can do any more crad making etc.

Today I made a concertina card for my daughter's partner's Mum. My daughter wanted a young contempory style card so this is what I came up with.
The base card is printed from the Boudoir Collection from Pink Petticoat as are the images, which i have coloured with Sakura glaze pens. The flower on the front is from a pack of Flora Doodles. I have just added the odd ribbon or two to finish it off.

Thought I would start off with a card I made today for my Father-in-Law's birthday, it will be his first birthday since we lost my dear Mother-in-Law, so I didn't want it to be too bright and cheerful.
I used some black tapestry card for the base and the teabag papers were from Joanna Sheen's Floral Fantasy cd.
