Little Slugger

I was the hostess for the Free 4 All challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.   Yesterday was Yadier Molina's  36th birthday.   For those of you that may not know who he is, he is a catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals.   I challenged the challenger players to make a card that had a cardinal, red & white which is the Cardinals colors, a baseball, the numbers 36 or something that related to Yadier and the Cardinals team.  I used this adorable House Mouse Stamp for my card and I found this awesome baseball card stock in my stash.  Believe it or not this is the first time this stamp has seen ink.  I sometimes get to busy with challenges and I don't take the time to make fun cards just because I want to, so the Yadier challenge helped me to do just that.  I had forgotten all about this stamp until I decided on the challenge and started looking for a stamp to use.  I am not a sports fan so I do not have many sports related stamps.  This card will be perfect for my grandson's next birthday.

Thank you, for stopping by and looking at my card.  It means so much that you take the time out of your day to stop  by and leave a comment on my blog.

Have a wonderful weekend.
