DeNami Baseball Chickie -Kyles Kamp Kick Off


Hey friends,

Last week, I shared a card on the DeNami blog, and if you missed it here it is.



I stamped the Retro Border at a diagonal in the center. Then I stamped the Demi Dot Circle Frame inside a white circle.  Next I added the Birthday Wishes circle followed by adding the Baseball Chickie from the All Star Chickies Stamp Set.  I colored the cutie with colored pencils and mineral spirits. I added the circle layers to a star and placed in the center of the card. I added a blue scallop border to the top and added texture by using the Stars Embossing Folder. Lastly, I added a little tab in the lower right corner stamping a baseball from the Sports Balls Stamp Set in the center in white ink.

Tonight is the opening ceremony for the Kyles Kamp Baseball Tournament my son will be participating in this weekend.   It will be held at the Washington Nationals Park. You can read about it here.  If you are lost as to what I am talking about, you can read my original post here, Life Behind Home Plate.

Tomorrow bright and early our kids will take the field in a Wood bat tournament (something these kids are not use to batting with) to raise money for pediatric cancer care and research. Thank you so much to those who have reached out and supported my son and his team. It goes to a wonderful cause!  My family has been touched by your support. My son gave me a message to share. "Thank you for helping me help other kids."

As it stands, they will have two games on Saturday, and one for sure on Sunday.  So if you get a moment, send some positive vibes for my little ballplayer and his teammates as they play a little baseball in the name of a boy, Kyle,  who is a cancer survivor and those who are fighting everyday! 

I thought I would share this card at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Just B Creative Crazy - May Linky Party.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

The only thing better than doing something you love is helping other people while you do it - such an awesome thing to teach the short stack! I hope it was a blast :)

Hope your son had lots of fun playing the baseball for a wonderful cause! I miss those baseball days even thought my son wasn't into baseball that much. He now plays and coaches hockey. I thank you and Ian so much for the thank you card! A wonderful photo of Ian and love the baseball and grateful sentiment. Very thoughtful, thank you! Take care, hugs!
