Humour

Hi Everyone, I'm writing on our first day of light rain and warmer temperatures, the sun has just come out and I'm fee - eeling goooooooood.

Yesterday we had a film added to our glass conservatory roof which lowers the UV and glare in it, so with the sun today, there is a little less glare on us.  I can recommend the film.

On to my card, I made it for my BIL for his 80th birthday, he has never been a sport interested man, but because his grandsons are sporty he has been going with them while they play football (soccer) and rugby.  He has even been telling us about  the games, so his card HAD to be to do with football.  I got the digi stamp "dunderton accademicals FC_COL" from Dr Digi and, a change for me, got the ready coloured version.  The image apart from the belly and the moustache is my BIL.  Luckily he loved it.

I downloaded a football pitch and in PS added 80 to the grass, you may think that I have missed out the "do" in the sentiment, but that is how it's said around here LOL.  I decoupaged the man and ball, and layered the sentiment too. I like doing picture style cards and this is one of them.
