Ross is 3 on 5th September - here's his card!

I can't believe that in 6 days time my youngest will be 3. It seems like yesterday I was in hospital causing chaos at his birth, involving a broken hospital bed (but that's another story).

We live in a relatively football free house. How I manage that living so near to Glasgow I'll never know. Ross is changing all that though as he loves nothing more than running about with a ball and scoring GOALS, so I had to create this card for him, I think he will love it.

I had to create the base card all by myself (ain't I clever LOL). I drew round a good old side plate then looked for a picture of a ball on the internet, saved it and opened the image then put paper to computer screen and adjusted the image to get the correct size and trace round it (I have to add that I had run out of ink for the PC and wanted to make the card NOW and not later so hence the antiquated way of doing it)
I used Jack with his Football stamp from Ladybug Crafts Ink for the image and coloured with my koh-i-noor pencils and promarkers. I made Jack dirty coz I know when my boy is playing with a ball he is never clean afterwards.
Look at his dirty wee face, so cute. I love these little stamps. I glossy accented the number 3 and the black parts of the ball, which have worked really well and it looks a bit more like a real ball (well - if you use your imagination a little)
Thought since it was his card that I should include a picture of the boy in question. This is him sitting on his dad's pride and joy, although Ross calls it his bike.
Hope you like my card. I have more creations to post so watch this space!!
