Marching on Together

Ok, I love football, and I mean real football, not that game over the pond where they are running holding the ball in their arms.

That's it. Everyone who follows football, knows what this card is about ;)

Again, name for the card is from a famous song: 
"Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! (commonly known as Marching On Together) is the name of the anthem of Leeds United A.F.C. Unlike many football songs that are just new words set to existing music, Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! is an original composition by Les Reed and Barry Mason. The song first appeared in 1972 as the B-side of the record released by Leeds United to coincide with the team reaching the 1972 FA Cup Final, the A-side being titled "Leeds United". The vocals on the original recording were sung by the then-members of the Leeds United team and their supporters. - from wikipedia and my heart.)

Argh! For some reason I'm not totally happy with this! Grrr... I was so excited to make this, but split my coffee and this looks "not so tribute".

  1. I know from what I've heard that it is a little more physical on your side of the pond. I like all of the embellishments you've included. I'm not really into any sport (I know something must be wrong with me LOL) other than occasionally watching ice skating or a little skiing, but I get bored easily. Hugs, dj

  2. Hmmmmm..I DO like football (real football, you know, the kind that involves feet. lol) but could never root for any one team. I'm afraid I'm the kind of person who stands behind whoever's winning!(Good thing I'm 2,000 miles away from you, huh? lol)

  8. I know what you mean about football. I'm across the pond, but our football actually involves kicking the ball too! I never understood American football - the only time feet meet the ball is in the endzone! On with your card... I love your collage of colours and distressing! Thanks for playing at DYSU this week,
    Pauline (Australia)
