For You

Not too bad...I skipped yesterday but am back today!
As promised, a BD card for the DH.

I experimented with my new TE sunburst die.  It was a little more difficult to work with than I had imagined.  We are both really excited about this baseball season, so I used some stash baseball dp.  I picked up the For You stamp when Margaret and I were in New York at The Ink Pad (PC).  That was back when we were first getting started in stamping and we went berzerk!  I think we each spent about $300!!!  We were in there for hours and famished by the time we were through.  We stopped at the first place we could find to eat and that turned out to be a good choice, considering our minds were mush by that point!  I've used this stamp a lot.  I like the marquee look to it.  I used punches and foam tape to make it stand out.

On the inside I used an Inkadinkado stamp by Dawn Houser to go along with my baseball theme: How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are? - Satchel Paige

I am entering the following challenges:

Time Out - birthday with optional male twist
Cut it Up - must use diecuts, birthday
The Crafting Cafe - One for the Boys

Thanks for stopping by.  I have another birthday card to share tomorrow.
