"Another Sneaker Card"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are enjoying the weekend.  They come and go so quickly, don` t they???
Have not had a phone call from Thomas yet.  He likes to come here when Robert is playing football.  When the team Robert plays for are playing Dad is either on the field as a referee or there as an official.   Thomas comes here unless some of the older boys are there waiting for younger brothers or dads (other officials)  to finish playing!!!!  He chats with them and has a kick about at the other end of the Park.
Sunday, Thomas is serving Teas & Coffees at the Village Hall in their little Village.    During August they have "Sunday Afternoon Teas"  The village raised a lot of money plus they got grants to built a beautiful new Hall 5 years ago.  They still have to Fund Raise during the year to pay for the upkeep.  He likes doing this he meets his friends who have gone up to the High School.. The "old Ladies" like Thomas to serve them.  He always call them "Girls"  ....  can I get you anything else "girls" ... is everything OK "Girls" ...   they love it.  I said to one of them that I thought it was a bit cheeky.  I was told "not at all, we love it and we just love Thomas" he had told them that was the best way to acknowledge them as he could not remember all their names ... !!! 
Anyway here is my offering for today:-

Base, Navy Leather effect card from PMD
White card & Navy card
The Sneaker Stamp I bought, plus the Grafitti Stamps used for the background.
Very basically coloured as I am not a colourer
The sentiments are one from the Sneaker Stamp Set and "Cool" from the Grafitti set
Thought this style would be good for Thomas`s card. His birthday is 1st September.
That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
Patricia  xx

  14. Hi Patricia, love your sneaker card, a perfect young mans card.
    I say the same to my youngest now and again when he says things, you're too cheeky, maybe other folk just don't see it like us?
    I think it is better for them to have a little character than be a wallflower don't you?

    Have a super weekend, hugs Erika.
