So before I show you my card for today's post I want to share some GREAT news!
Yesterday my son's baseball team~The Nationals had a game. They play so well together but have only won 1 game and have lost the other 4. The kids are so fine with not winning (even though they want to) what makes it great is they are such a great bunch of kids. Very encouraging and always complementing each other on a job well done.
So last night before the game my son tells me he is going to hit the ball (they use a machine and it is his first year on the machine) and catch the ball in outfield.
I said great..go for it!
Well wouldn't you know he did hit the ball...a GREAT hit non the less. But wait it gets better!
He is playing 2nd base and wouldn't you know a fly ball comes his way....the bases are loaded and the other team has 2 outs. They are also up by a run. We all watch the ball as my son not only catches it...tags the runner coming to second with the ball and tags the base getting the player on second going to third out also.
~~A TRIPLE PLAY~~
We are all screaming...I have tears in my eyes..it was the most exciting minute of baseball their team has had.
To make it even better the coach comes running out, picks him up and twirls him around... all the while his entire team circles him and high fives him.
It was truly an amazing moment for him and such a proud moment for us!
And yes they ended up winning 9-4 :)
More good news....my Memorial Day card I made for the Kraft Journal was chosen as a top 3 challenge winner...Woo Hoo!!
I used kraft cardstock for the base and Jillibean Soup Pattern Paper. The Flowers are from the Paisly Cartridge and they are cut at 2.5"
The sentiment is from My Creative Time~This & That set.
I used my white gel pen for some details around the flower petals
Memento ink in rich cocoa for the sentiment and Tim Holtz distress ink in peeled paint for some sponging around the pattern paper and flower petals
Also added are some pop dots to the sentiment to give it some wave.
I hope you like my card!
Thanks for stopping by and see you all later!
