Baseball Birthday

I thought this was a great birthday design for baseball fans of any gender but I made it especially for my son in law. He is a big fan of all types of sports.


I used images from the Kitchen Sink Stamps line and the stamp set is called 3 Step Baseball. The wood grain background was made with my Scor-Board and then the color was added by dragging the stamp pad over the paper. I paired it with some Gina K. Designs pattern paper.


Baseball is a favorite past time in our area with lots of games being played in the summer with teams from other towns.

Stamplorations is celebrating their third birthday so I am entering this in the Stamplorations Blog Hop & Linky Party. I just recently discovered their line.

Have a great week everyone and I hope you are enjoying the Fourth as well.

God bless,
Verna

GREAT masculine card. Judy has that set and I am always amazed at how life-like they are. The bat and glove look awesome, especially on your wood grain background--I love making planks lol
