LIM recipe

The LIM challenge this week is a recipe - combine any 3 previous challenges! I have been searching for some time for American Football images, as my son is a keen player, and eventually found this old set by Stampin up on ebay a few weeks ago - the postage from the US cost me more than the stamps, but they looked practically new when they arrived.
I wanted to try them out, so the 3 challenges almost chose themselves - obviously no 7, masculine; no 4 use 3 squares; and then no 29, things that move. Images simply stamped with black memento ink, coloured with gold promarker  (the team colours of his last team),  cut out with a square punch originally bought for teabag folding papers and matted onto yellow card.


  1. Good card for a sportsman.Great combination of challenges. Jean x

  2. That's a very expensive stretch of water to ship things across isn't it Veronica.
    I'm so pleased you were pleased with your stamps... I'm sure your son will love this card!
    Thanks so much

  4. These are great images for the American football player but what a shame you had to pay so much postage.
