Take me out to the ball game....

Alright, I'll be the first to admit I know NOTHING about sports. I made this card yesterday and even paper pieced the bat by staming it on a piece of real wood veneer paper. After I finished it, I thought something looked wrong and I showed the hubs, he immediately said the woodgrain on the bat is going in the wrong direction...should I redo it, he says only if you want it to look authentic...then he quickly walked away.


Oh well, it is what it is and this is Stamping Bella's baseball PEEP. Of course I stamped him on Bella's BESTEST paper and to keep with our NAVY, GREEN and KRAFT challenge I paired him up with a piece of Basic Grey Pyrus paper. 'Genuine Boy' was cut with a quickutz die, but I'm not sure of the name. They are tiny letters and the entire alphabet is on a 4x4 die. Let me just say, Emily made me buy it and now I know why I needed it.

Well, I have a busy day lined up...stamp up a bunch of images to colour over the next couple weeks, do laundry, buy flowers for the yard, tidy up the house and most importantly...stalk Emily's blog to see what everyone else came up with for this week's challenge.

Now next week might be a real challenge for some of you, but really guys like getting cards too. That's right, get geared up for Father's Day and make a MASCULINE CARD! Send it to Emily by next Thursday at 5pm and you just may get lucky and win yourself some bella bucks!

Well I think the bat turned out awesome. Who cares about the grains going the opposite direction, it looks good to me, coming from a girl who knows nothing about baseball :o) The layout out is perfect and your colouring, well you know how I feel about that !!!
