Baseball Thank You's - #1

Morning all.

Question....when you love making cards and gifts and the like....what do you do when your son's baseball team needs thank yous for the staff?? Volunteer to make them of course!!

I started off with the lady who scores the games each week. Baseball scoring is a skill. Every ball is marked as strike/ball/etc and then the # of bases taken or if the runner got out is also noted. You have to be on the ball in a big way. The lady who does score is a real girly-girl, so her card reflected this.....


The background needed a bit of oomph....so I stamped a pattern to just break it up a bit.


The flowers are a combination of the Bouquet Blossom Triple Layer Punch and combined it with a small Carla Craft daisy.


The DSP I used was the old and very faithful Bella Rose. I miss it so much and only bust it out when really needed. I needed a Pink Pirouette DSP...so it was needed!!!


Thanks for popping by and I will be back in a few days with the cards and gifts I made for the Coach and Assistant Coach.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Certainly Celery, Bella Rose DSP (ret)
Ink: (SU) Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake

What a sweetie, Lynda! Perfect for your 'girly' score keeper! Bet she loved it! I am soooo caving ... about buying that pennant die! But ... I don't have any alphabet dies, either ... so perhaps I had better 'pass' on CASE-ing this one ... even though it is so CASE-able! Hugs xxx

Great card Lynda. I'm sure it was very much appreciated. It's a thankless job at times the old scoring so it was a lovely thought.
Love the little banner.

Love Jenny x
