SCRS September Release Day - Soccer Josh

Hi everyone and welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps SEPTEMBER RELEASE DAY! All new stamps are now available to buy from the SCRS store! We are also previewing Soccer Josh today.

As soon as I saw this week's new MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #88, I had one of those very rare 'lightbulb' moments and instantly knew it would be the perfect layout for my Soccer Josh card.  My brother-in-law supports Newcastle United so I decided to make this his birthday card (even though his birthday is not until next year, lol!) and coloured Josh's kit to match.  I used the small alpha stamps from the fabulous MFT Jersey Die-namics & Stamp Set to stamp out "Happy Birthday Roger".  The cloud paper is a 6x6 MME piece (not sure from which pad) and the green and B&W paper is by Echo Park.
(Sorry the lighting is a bit off. I take photos on a windowsill with the window on the left as you look at the photo. As it was 6pm when I took this, the sun was starting to set and it has therefore affected the lighting. I'll replace with another over the weekend when I get better light!)

Be sure to visit our fabulous SCRS designers for more peeks of Soccer Josh. Sparkle will be giving away a Soccer Josh rubber stamp to one lucky person! For a chance to WIN, you need to visit and comment on all of the designers' Soccer Josh blog posts (listed below) and leave a comment on the SCRS blog post. You have until midnight EST tonight to comment.


Thanks so much for popping by today!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)
