 Sorry this should have posted earlier....blogger gremlins again!!

Good morning Crafty Friends, how are you all and have you been having a good week so far? Mine has been so so, got my new fridge freezeer delivered, but am now waiting on another new one, as it came with scratches and dent on the door! C'est la Vie!!
I'm here today as it's the turn of the New Release team at Julia Spiri, though this week we have no new images, but don't worry, we have been creating with past images and I chose to work on something completely different to my norm ... a boy card, and for this I used the image Football. Isn't he fab for all our football mad men and boys!!  For more wonderful images and challenge details etc, please follow the links at the bottom of the page!!.  
Here is my finished project...
