Have a little fun today...

Hello crafty friends! 

With Fall creepin' up on us I really wanted to get this adorable little baseball player into one final game of the season. The stamp is one of the new clear stamps from the Dreamerland Crafts July release and it is called Lets Hit a Home Run. As soon as I laid eyes on this little guy a scene of him standing at home plate popped into my head and I just had to try and recreate it on a card. The chain link fence was a little tricky and don't look too closely because those links sure aren't evenly spaced but I do think it succeeds in coming across as intended. For some reason this cutie brings to mind the Kenny Rogers song, The Greatest... especially the verse that says, "Little boy, in a baseball hat, stands in the field with his ball and bat, says I am the greatest player of them all, puts his bat on his shoulder and he tosses up his ball".  :)

Later gators!

Love this little guy. I bet that chain link fence was a lot of work. Hope you’re feeling better. Hugs.
