Take me out to the Ballgame

Another fun baseball card for my husband!


My husband Ray plays in an over 53 league, and says the most athletic player is usually at Shortstop.  The best runners are in the outfield.  My husband is FAST and plays in the outfield.  He quit diving for balls a few years ago when he broke a couple of ribs..... that was really painful!

 This is Happy Hopper Great Catch stamp by Stampendous.  Coloring is done with Copic Markers, and the DP I used is G45.
  The Free For ALl challenge at Splictoast stampers is to stamp using something you love (Watching hubby play baseball).  The Ways to Use it challenge asks for us to use Wire, so I added the metal finding with ribbon added to it.

Challenges:
House Mouse & Friends- AG + Outdoor Fun
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2- Sketch



Thanks for stopping by!
