Just a few lines to let you know that my own first entry to the Konnie Kapow Kards Katalogue has at last been launched. HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES!!!!
CHRISTMAS IS COMING UP FAST, SO TAKE A LOOK IF YOU'VE GOT FOOTY FANS TO CATER FOR!
The range of cards I've come up with are a tip of the hat to perhaps my only vice, Association Football. I do hope you like them and please do whack an order or three in at your leisure. I can produce a select XI for any team you fancy, from Barnet to Barcelona, with legendary players listed, or your very own, your darling other half's, your grandad's, whoever you fancy's names included in the line-up.
You could make a 'DAVE'S ALL-TIME XI F.C. CHRISTMAS TREE', for your friend Dave, starring all his favourite players. Or a 'ROCK & ROLL XI' featuring a mythical team of legendary rock stars, probably managed by Colonel Tom Parker, with Elvis at centre-forward and Chubby Checker in goal.
Text can of course come in the colour scheme of your choosing too, as long as it's not the same colour as the green of the pitch - unless you've created an 'INVISIBLE MAN XI'... It could happen?!!
Once your order has been placed and details confirmed, I, Mr Kapow, will lovingly prepare your card and then blast it toward your doormat faster than a vicious, swerving "Psycho" Stuart Pearce free-kick circa 1987. GOAL!!!!
The examples on show are of suggested All-Star line-ups for the Everton and Liverpool Football Clubs. I'll probably publish a few for other teams in the coming weeks too, so watch this space eh?
*** Before I go I just wanted to state that 'Sharpy', my footy card model has been fined a week's wages and warned as to his future conduct following his nancy-schmancy dive during the photoshoot this morning (see photo above). It won't happen again! ***
With love and wishes that your team shines valiantly wherever they are playing this week!

Well, here it is. The blogtastic debut of Mr Kapow! Hurrah!
Sometimes on a Friday I like to sit and drink tea, thinking about all the things I need to get done over the weekend. Perhaps wondering if it's a good idea to go and hunt for ingredients to bake a sponge cake or some delicious oatmeal flapjacks. I think for now I'll settle for a Florida Pink grapefruit to keep me going through 'til lunchtime. I might give the Man from DelMonte a tinkle to see what he thinks.
As you will no doubt have heard from my dear wife, the esteemed Konnie Kapow, we are embarking upon something of a creative venture at present, making things and trying to sell them. My contributions will no doubt be of the more 'chap-esque' variety and I do hope all you ladies out there will purchase said works as gifts for the lucky fellows in your life. Go on, there's a good chapette.
Anyway, I'm off now to scan things in, mess about with this spanky new computer and generally keep myself busy until such time as I'm required to don my finest threads and sachet down to the blinking restaurant we're supposed to be going to tonight.
With warmest regards and wishing you all a spiffing weekend of poached eggs, cloudy lemonade and sunday supplements.
