Hey Sports Fans!


The card on my blog today is for a swap I am in on SCS. It's a great group of gals that swap cards every month. This month our theme was sports related cards.

Well since my boys are in the middle of a very busy baseball season, I figured a baseball card was appropriate. However, since I am the dedicated mom sitting out there cheering them on come rain or shine...I decided to use the digi stamp, Tomboy Audrey from The Greeting Farm. It represents me out there cheering my boys on!!!! LOL!! I did use the color scheme, red, white and blue because those are the team colors for my oldest son's baseball team.

I saw this great layout on SCS and loved the rosette behind the image. I am sorry I cannot now find the card to give proper credit for the layout. And I did change the layout a little bit. I used Real Red, Whisper White and Not Quite Navy cardstock along with some designer paper from Cosmo Cricket. I used some small circle punches and the Sporting set from Stampin' Up! I embellished with a red button and some Baker's Twine and stitched along the round cardstock behind my image to make it look like a baseball.

Thanks for stopping by.
