Great Afternoon - Marching On Together!

I have a confession to make! Although I have been a Leeds fan for years and followed them diligently, sharing their ups and downs (and boy, have there been some!), I had never been to Elland Road. Today, that all changed.

Today I took my son who usually goes with his dad, but with him being away this weekend I was talked into going. I have had the most fantastic afternoon (me and 27,000 other fans) and I am now truly hooked. The atmosphere was amazing - I don't think I have experienced anything like it, the friendliness, the singing, the cheering, the celebrations when we scored and the feel good factor. So, that is my Saturday afternoons taken care of for the forseeable.

Made a couple more cards last night, both using yummy Crate paper. The orange one has a gorgeous velvety prima flower and the rub-0ns are the ones I bought for 50p in Harrogate. What a bargain! Why did I only buy one pack?
This one used more Prima, and I have glazed the large blue flower which looks really good IRL. I added K&Co stitches rub-ons to the edges and created the fancy edge with my Fiskars border punch. Got some fantastic bargains this morning too from my local craft shop (I know I said I wasn't buying, and I'm not any more) but 20p for double sided 12x12 - well, could you resist it?
