Birthdays In August!!!

My youngest is mad on football & asked for all football related presents for her birthday & a football party. I'm secretly thrilled that she's such a Tomboy as I was right up until my teens & with two older sisters who are real girly girls it's nice to have football kits to wash instead of all pink lol!!!

As soon as I saw this image over at Mo's digital pencil I thought of Dara!! it could have been drawn for her & once I'd touched up the football kit to match hers!!!! well see for yourself with the photo below.

I've used Leeds Utd team colours (of course) but just had to add a bit of Kay & Co background papers with the cute little hearts. The stars are punched using an SU punch & then covered in stickles. The football ribbon is from my stash & the little football is cut using a Quickutz die.
They are back to the beginning over at ABC Challenge & so this week the letter is 'A' & the challenge is to interpret what August means to you. My youngest daughters birthday is 7th August & my husbands is 23rd August so this is a busy month for two of my main birthdays of the year.

I'm also entering this card over at Simon Says Challenge where the challenge this week is 'Sing It Baby' & they want you to link your projest to a song. Mine is Football Crazy by The Spinners!!!

Also over at Stamp Something there's a photo challenge & I've chosen the 'Birthday Card' option for my interpretation of the photo.

Thanks for looking & any comments you might leave.
