Quick 40

This will be a rather quick post as I'm feeling a bit ropey and once again, its been a hectic day!  The card I am sharing (and being part of A Card A Day group - I'm hoping (everything crossed) that I can do all of November and December!!) today is a very quick make and a bargain too!

It's a Ready to Print Square Card kit from The Clip Art Fairy and it was a bargain at 15p!!  But be quick the closing down sale is only on until the end of November.  I've printed it directly onto my linen effect white card (The Papermill), added the sentiment and did a bit of glittering (around the edge of the card and also the number) with some stickles and added three pearls to balance the card.

I've had the pearls for absolute ages and actually forgot I had them as was looking for something else at the time!  So that was a nice surprise!

And another nice surprise for today was that Jacob's football team won their first match of the season this morning!  They've moved indoors (yeah - no more muddy fields and sub-zero temps on a Saturday morning!) and onto astro turf which they train on so they are more used to it.  They won either 9-2 or 10-2 - we're not sure as we were that chuffed they won!!  It's been a long time coming as they are a really good gelled team that pass to each other and have two good goalies (one being Jacob who also plays in defense).
