Football Crazy


Well hasn't the weather been fabulous - took H to a farm activity centre yesterday (when he was on Inset Day), today he has been swimming and tomorrow we are going to a children's show 'Way Back Home' with his friend Chloe and her mum has kindly offered to cook us dinner afterwards.
On Thursday night i went for an MRI scan, as my migraines seem to be getting worse, so to reassure me more than anything i requested one - i tried it with just shutting my eyes, but i just freaked, so the nurse kindly gave me an eyemask and with 'Kylie' singing in my ears i felt alot better - i should know the results in a couple of weeks.

This card has been made for one of H's school friends who is going to be 5 on Thursday - initially i was going to use just plain old black and white buttons, till i found these fabby football ones in a drawer ( i must confess i had completely forgotten about them), they came with 2 American Footballs (that could double as Rugby ball) and 2 Baseballs. The sentiment i got in a bundle of other stamps, whilst purchasing 2 PB stamps, but i thought it worked well with the image. I've had the stamp since last November.
