cool art card n a kenny k...


So a cool art car then? A bit of a concoction but nevertheless a well turned out card :)

Card is for an 18th birthday (yes I'm stating the obvious!) But with a different theme for a lass. She is having a Citro├źn C2 in blue for her birthday so the order was for this to go onto the card. At first I thought use a pic of the car that's more like a photo but then after looking, the card would have been too tomboyish :-/ flicked through my images I have n found the kenny k girl image..... bingo! *insert light bulb idea for a cool art car*

Next thing..... found an image of the car but it was too small. Que my lovely little brother! ;) made it bigger, put her name on the number plate and even put a flash in the lights so it looks like the are on. Thanks Andy :)

The card had to be put in a box due to the size so why not put an acetate window in it??

Finishing touches ;)

nappy cake...

So, I'd already brought my mate her Moses basket but wanted to give her something more for baby. I have never made a nappy cake before tbh but I had a go anyways :)

All the baby stuff is all Johnsons baby along with pampers nappies and baby wipes. Also got a 'humpries the elephant' microwave plate and some socks. Of course I had to put some avfc stuff in there!! Haha I do actually have a baby suit as well but will keep that for later on :)

Hope she likes it...... she's a bluenose!!! Haha

going a bit off topic..... all things AVFC

Well then, how good was it to be back watching the boys in Claret & Blue?! Didn't realise I missed football THAT much!!

Me and Mom sat behind the goal to the left. Such a good view (especially of Shay Given!) Was sruurounded by a few undesireables but they made the atmosphere to be fair. I'm sure the guy in front of me did not stop chanting through the whole game!! Haha 

For a small stadium, Walsall is a great atmosphere. It's a one tier stadium apart form the Floors-To-Go stand which is two tiers. All the AVFC fans were in good spirits. We took up two stands and a block but could easily have filled more! Attendance was 7,000 (a bit different to Villa Park!) We were far superior with support for our team tho.

Given was a sure fire hit with the fans. Got an outstanding applaud from us lot with us chanting "GIVEN!! GIVEN!!" But the guy is gorgeous!! It pains me to say this but Stephen Ireland was looking sharp last night!! Seemed to have the right attitude as well. And we welcomed back the one and only Stephen Warnock!! I actually LOVE this guy!! We were all chanting at him also. Love it when the players recognise the fans and applaud us :)

Got a few new chants to learn.... caught hold of a few. One was superb and will be muchly used when Downing returns to Villa Park with Liverpool! Looking forward to that! 

I've read somewhere this morning in the papers today, that us fans are being criticised for not accepting Alex McLeish as our new manager... this is complete crap! Granted there were no "McLeish's Claret and BLue Army!" chants but still there was nothing negative about the football being played.... (we will leave out the 2 sitters The Fonz missed!)

We were there to see our Claret and Blue Boys Play... and we did just that!
'villa till I die cuz I'm villa till I die!'

a candle for a teacher...



So my cousin asked me to decorate a candle for her daughter's teacher, not so much of an ask but damn that bloody printer!! Had to print the greeting onto tissue paper, so in order to do that i had to stick the tissue paper to card. After a LOT of effort and 4 sheets later, I finally got an end result :D I didn't think the Tatty Ted would show up as well on the blue candle it has shown up quite well :)

finally some VILLA cards....



Well, well, well...... finally I get to make 2 VILLA cards!! Wooohoooo!! Don't get me wrong, love making my footy cards but they have all been teams I don't support :( but finally someone order 2 VILLA cards :D


Bit of a weird order tho, a4 card is crest n back of shirt with no.6 n Dave... a good number to choose as it is Mr. Downing's number ;) and 2nd card was a picture if Villa Park with crest.

I'm happy with the cards tho, turned out well.

Up the VILLA!!
