Happy Birthday, Slugger!

One of my handsome grandsons turned 9 on June 19. He's been playing baseball this summer (or maybe it's softball) and hitting live pitches for the first time. I thought it was a good time to capitalize on this new sport in his life, so here's the card I made for him:

I cut the bat and ball from "Best Images of 2008," the cloud from "Everyday Paper Dolls."  The sun was cut with a Spellbinders reverse scallop circle die and the grass was made with a Fiskars border punch.

The sentiment was printed with the help of my computer and then cut with a Lifestyle Crafts ticket die.

To dress up the inside just a wee bit, I doodled a border with a red gel pen.

This card was given to my grandson along with a Minnesota Twins baseball cap. The word on the street is that he really likes that hat! I hope I get to see him in it soon, and maybe even watch him play ball this summer.

Well, that's it for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
