Outdoor Sports! But it's Cold Outside

 Morning all.  We have a new challenge for you today over at Make My Monday.  'Outdoor Sports' is the theme.  If you've read my blog before you will know that the Outdoor Sport I indulge in is Cricket.  However, as it's autumn and not cricket season in this hemisphere, I have gone for a Rugby theme. 

My son did toy with Rugby for a while as a child.  I well remember why I'm a summer sport girl.  Standing on a windy moor with the sleet coming sideways at you and no shelter anywhere.  The rugby mum with a flask full of 'laced' coffee was very popular that morning if I remember rightly.  No, summer sports are definitely my thing - although I've frozen at a few early spring cricket matches in my time too.  I've had the download of sporting chaps for ages.  It came from Crafts-u-print.  The artist is Gordon Fraser.  He has some really fun sporting designs. It's about time I dusted off some of these old bits and got them used up.

Please pop over and join in the sporting fun.  No freezing needed but you can lace your coffee if you like.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x



  1. He looks fantastic Dawn,love the image and papers love watching rugby from the comfort of home,the laced coffee sounds good

  2. What a fun card, Dawn! Your post reminded me of all of the sacrifices I made to my health while sitting in miserable conditions for my son's soccer and football games. The only sports I like are the ones that my kids are in! LOL Otherwise, you'll find me crafting - sure is warmer, especially when lacing my coffee isn't allowed! BTW I thought American football was rough till I saw a few rugby games. Wow, they're brutally crazy! Anyhoo, I hope you are well and have a great week!

  3. What a fun masculine card Dawn, I love that image and the gorgeous colors!
    Hugs, Tammy

  4. A super card Dawn, a fun image - I'm with you on the summer sport, much more pleasant for the spectators, I might make an exception for F1 though!
