Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

For Helen, You'll Never Walk Alone!

I can finally share this card I made for my crafty friend, Helen, Stamping by H as it's her birthday today and I know the card has arrived safely! While we both love crafts we also both love football. Helen is a huge Liverpool fan, while I support Bristol Rovers, but as a family we also follow Liverpool in the Premier League so we often tweet each other relating to results etc.. So what with the World Cup as well, I decided to make a suitable card - 

It's a bit of a running joke really because it is well known by those who know me that I don't do red so I knew Helen would appreciate my efforts! The image is a Some Odd Girl character which I coloured with Copics & Graph Its. I matted and layered the finished image with red, black and white card. I stamped out 'You'll Never Walk Alone' (Liverpool's anthem if you didn't know!) onto candi using the stamps from Craftwork cards that were made especially for the candi. Perfect size!

I actually really enjoyed colouring this despite the colour!! Lol

I'm entering this into the following challenges - 

Hope you like my football card, just a pity it can't be related to a super World cup for England who are now already home after failing to get out of the groups! :(

Take care Zo xx

Thanks Zoe, for embracing your dreaded red for me! I really appreciate it!

I'll not comment on the World Cup or Liverpool in the light of todays news (although we're avid followers in this house) so I'll concentrate on your fabulous card. It's stunning and so apt.
Great colours too Zo...I'm sure it will be treasured.
Enjoy your Friday and weekend to come ;)

Zo this is gorgeous love the image, I am not a footie fan even though I was born in Liverpool and if I can avoid it will do. I am sure your crafty/footie friend will love it. Alison xx
