Celtic or Rangers that is the question? Crafty style of course.

Good evening and how are you this Monday?
Did you have a good weekend?
I had a busy morning in work on Saturday and then the rest of the weekend was quite relaxing with a couple of walks and a little crocheting.  I also perfected the art of an afternoon nap both Saturday and Sunday which is most unlike me, but I did feel much better for it, except for feeling like a bit of a lightweight!

A busy day in work also today, lots of Christmas bits and bobs coming in now.  NO!
I'm not ready for Christmas, haven't had my summer holiday yet.  I used to really love Christmas when the boys were younger, it really doesn't have the same appeal now.
I don't see family as no holiday time is allowed over the season at work, one of the joys of working in retail.
It really just comes and goes.
New Year is definitely more fun.

On to today and I was asked for a football card with Celtic colours and I decided to treat myself to a new die by Lea'bilities.  I make so many footy cards I thought it was about time I had something new to go with my SU ball and boots.

CAS all the way.  Love the embossing of this shorts and tee-shirt die, plus you get the numbers for the shirt.  Magic.  I think I shall get lots of use out of this die don't you?

That's all from me today, the buzzer has just gone in the kitchen, that means it's feeding time at the zoo.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday evening and more from me tomorrow.

Hi Erika,
oh what relly fab card, and such perfect dies for making cards for a particular footy team.
Yes Christmas is not the same when the children start growing up, and it takes another turn after they leave home also.
I worked in retail for many years, and it sure does play havoc with Christmas as you are always so busy in work.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A really super card Erika. I'm sure you'll get lots of use from your new dies and they might have to go on my wish list I'm thinking.

I really don't enjoy Christmas very much at all since our son died but I've got many happy memories of Christmas time when he was a little chap. Barbxx
