Cute Card Thursday card!

I have been busy making cards last night so will show them over the next couple of days! This one is for the Cute Card Thursday challenge which was A Sprting Chance, you simply have to use a sporting image on your card.
It is my eldest sons 10th Birthday in a few days time so I have made a card from his Brother to give to him. His name is Ross but Evan often calls his big brother Rossi! So I thought it would be cute to stamp that on the card.
The papers are some that I havent used very often, Junior Varsity, I love them now!!! The cricket image is Paper Nation, Ross is obsessed with Cricket!

I used the Schoolbook Serif alphabet to stamp the name in Old Olive and then added punched out stars with Real Red buttons. I did a little trick I saw someone do on another blog and I wound round tiny thin strips of paper instead of cotton.

We have been gardening this morning (our garden is huge and I hate gardening but it is very overgrown!). We found this little fella amongst all the weeds!!!

Back tomorrow with another card, be sure to check in!
