My Time To Craft 'Outdoor Sports' Challenge

Good morning all.

This week at My Time To Craft we are challenged to 'Outdoor Sports' so football, rugby, fishing, golf etc etc.  When I first thought of this challenge the only image that came to mind is the one I used on my first card of a young lad and his fishing rod, after making the card I remembered the second card I made for my step grandson's birthday so thought I would post them both.

 For the first card, I didn't like the fact that there was only a fishing rod and felt it needed something else. I found a couple of fish and cut them out on my silhouette cameo, then I very nicely asked my husband if he had a bit of fishing line with a hook attached that I could 'borrow'. He got me out the line first about a metre of it and then asked what sized hook I wanted, his face was a picture when I showed him my two fish that I wanted caught lol. I do think they finish the card off nicely although it will have to go with an accident advisory attached looking at the hook!

Finally here is my other card which is definitely more sport's like. Samuel is a huge football fan and Tottenham Hotspur supporter so I had to make it in the relevant colours. I made this so that the shirt had a triangle back to it, ensuring it would stand up yet leave enough room for me to write a message on. The card is 7" x 5".
