Stamp with Us Second Challenge - a card for a Football Fan
Here's my birthday card for the challenge. The footballers come from a little book printed in the 1930s called A Boy's Wish Book and the caption for this wish reads "How proud I should be if I were a great Soccer player, made dashing runs along the touchline, and helped to score a goal for my team!" As well as a Soccer player (is there a difference between football and soccer?) the boy of 80 years ago also wished to be (amongst other things) a Canadian mountie, a judge, a radio announcer, a farmer, an indian chief, a zoo keeper and a cowboy - how times have changed! I also have the girl's wish version but I'll keep that for another post. Of course I haven't cut up the book, I scanned and Photoshoped the drawing and cut it out. The stamps I've used come from 'Simply Sent', 'Terrific Tags', and 'WOW Flowers'. The orange dotty paper is SU too. I hope you like it.
