Waiting for Summer....

I have had enough snow and am patiently waiting for summer...or not so patiently waiting. To help pass the time I joined my friend Barb's card swap. The requirements were to use a stamp from Whipper Snappers and the theme had to be spring or summer related.

At first I was thinking flowers and bright colors...but then I came across this stamp I had purchased and had yet to see ink. And, since I have a couple boys why not do a baseball themed summer card as we have spent many summers on the baseball field.
I used the stamp "Reggie" from Whipper Snappers. My cardstock is Whisper White, Real Red and Creamy Caramel. The grassy DP is from Sandylion. I colored Reggie with my Copics and then mounted the image on Real Red cardstock in the center of my baseball diamond. I used my MS grass border punch as well. I sponged Creamy Caramel ink around my baseball diamond as well as the bases (used 3/4" square punch) because it all had to look a little dirty and dusty or it just wouldn't be baseball. The word "All Star" on the inside is from SU's set called Sporting.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you all a great day.
