World Cup & Weekly Crafting Challenges

I haven't been playing the weekly challenges lately because I was away at Las Vegas last weekend and had to catch up at work. I can't believe June is almost over. I seems like June just started yesterday, but obviously the weather tells me otherwise as the weather is HOT (extremely hot) nowadays. Next weekend will be fourth of July and Jim and I will be BBQing over at our friend's house. Have a wonderful fourth of July if I don't get to blog next weekend.

I got to play yesterday, so this is what I made, a card for my co-worker who LOVES soccer especially since the World Cup is on for a whole month. I am not really into any sports. My co-worker must be sad that both of his favorite teams lost (US and Mexico) and will not be playing for the championship. I made this card representing the US soccer team, can't you tell by the colors. I made the red strips all sparkly, with this new product called Glitter Ritz, it is from UK. I got this product at my LSS, but you can buy them at Ellen Houston , they glitter doesn't come off once you burnish it with your fingers, it feels like velvet. You can read about this product at Ellen Houston's blog. This stuff is expensive, but the little bottle lasts a long time. I colored this Wags n' Whiskers (WnW) soccer boy image with my copic markers. Added some stars from Hero Arts (stamped and cut out) and a star charm. The floss on the star charm are left over stitching floss from my cross-stitching projects I made awhile back. I need to get back into cross-stitching, that is also a very relaxing, but time consuming hobby.
