I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies.

Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.

Tomorrow is my Grandson's 13th Birthday, and he is a goalie in his football team, but lately he has started to play Basket Ball.
So this is the card I came up with for his Birthday this year.

This is a 8"x7" size card .
I cut out the frame with Sue Wilson's Rectangle Die set, now I only have the B set so I used snippets left over from other projects to give me my inner frame.
The image is from the Internet, and so is the emojo basket balls inside.
Love how this one turned out.

Thank you so much for your visit, and time, I really do appreciate your visit, and comments so much.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

Only wish you had made this earlier as my Grandson is into basket ball to but he is 12 very begining of April and I really struggled, this year ended up doing him an ice-cream thingy.
Congrats on winning the top prize over at Allsorts.

Brilliant and very imaginative, perfect card for this young man. Love how you've turned the internet picture into a focal point in the wonderful SWilson frame. (I don't have either set but drool each time I see them used). Also cleverly designed inside, using the snippets from cutting that frame. The emoji-s are just delightful and will bring a smile to his face. Great work on personalizing this card so well. TFS & Hugs
