One For The Boys

Here is my entry to this weeks DU2 Digi-Stamp challenge which is One For The Boys. My son is 16 today(eek) and a card carrying Barnsley fan. Now every self respecting football team has to have a local rival, and in Barnsley's case it's Sheffield United. I've dressed Sandra's fabulous meerkats in Sheffied's colours and added a rather uncomplimentary caption using Saffmat. This is the first time I have used this and so I'm still learning. It worked great over the gold where I cut it really close, and I should have cut it down closer over the green, but I wasn't going to print it again!
The background is from Google Images. I really don't know about copyright etc, but it's an area I'm going to have to look into.
Thanks very much for looking and have a great weekend xx
