Ok, we finally had our summer baseball party and guess what? It happened to be the same day and time that Brett's 1st Fall baseball game was!!! Well, he played his game and we rushed over there because it was a swimming party. He received his trophy, borrowed a swim suit, and had a great time. Tim and I collected $ from all the parents of the players and purchased gift cards to thank them for all their time, patience, and energy that they gave to our kids. You have to admit these people do have the patience. I don't think that I could ever be a coach!! The practices, fund-raisers, parents.....the list goes on. Anyway, Brett is absolutely loving baseball this year. He actually prefers to watch SportsCenter on TV than anything lately!! Go Royals!!
I made these cards for each of the players to sign for the 2 coaches we had. In the stamp lineup were several sets on this card including: Star Prints (PTI), Let Freedom Ring (PTI), and Grand Slam (TAC--an oldie but goodie). I LOVE how this came together. I had someone comment on how the color "grey" was making a comeback.....now for this card I didn't choose grey but rather these were The Sharks baseball team colors!! Don't you just love the font for this card? This is the font for all the words included in this set!! I created a small bit of my own patterned paper for where the stars are placed. Well, I hope you enjoyed this card......I have a VERY hard time making masculine cards but this one I like!!
