Play Ball

I am a huge SF Giants baseball fan.  Whenever I travel to cities with ballparks, I go to a game.  I have loved baseball since I was a little girl, listening to games on the radio, watching on "local" tv and going to the ballpark.
So my card today honors my love of the game.
Since she is dressed in stripes, I just couldn't put her in SF black and orange, so she looks more like a cross between a Red Sox and a Yankee!  Now what is more like summer than the "girls" of summer?! HA!  I love my little all star!

This is Tilda of Magnolia fame, a stamp that has been in my collection for a long time but remained uninked until now.  I colored her with Copics and added star buttons above the image.  I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Creative Belli - summer
City Crafter - polka dots

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Kathy,
    It's amazing how it can take a while for us to finally put ink on our stamps isn't it? You have inspired me to use a Tilda stamp on my next design that I too have had for a while. Time to get it out lol.

    Your design is very cute. We don't have baseball out here in Oz but I'm sure it's exciting :) I love how you have coloured her & the cute little stars :) Very cute design :)

    Thank you for popping over to my blog & leaving such lovely words :) I appreciate it & hope you come back to visit real soon :) Have a great day. Hugz, Lisa.
