TKJ#184 - What's on Your Work Table

Good Morning Friends!

{For my Trendy Twine Back To School Project click here}

We have a fun challenge this week at The Kraft Journal! It's "What's On Your Work Table."  At the time it was for me to work on this challenge I turned and looked at what I had on my work space and snapped a picture, so I had to commit to challenge myself to work with what was there. It was actually items that I needed to put away. I had fun making it work. 
On my work desk, was my Peachy Keen Stamps Folder,  an extra baseball and bat die-cut, a blue sequin. I think I used everything in the design, but the bat. I of course added more goodies as well. 

I started of course with a Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock. In my scrap folder, I found two pieces of patterned paper I wanted to use and joined those together and added them to my card base. I added a length of baseball grosgrain ribbon where the pieces joined. Next I cut a banner from a Vintage Dictionary Page and added it to the left side of the card front. I then added the baseball die-cut which I selected one of the cute faces from Peach Keen Everyday Faces and stamped it on the baseball die-cut. Behind the baseball, I added a layered scalloped circle which I stamped my sentiment using Paper Smooches stamps. Next I die-cut a few stitched stars from My Creative Time.  All that was left was to use the blue sequin, and I added that to one of my red stars and of course I decided to pull out a few more sequins for a final finishing touch. 

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see "What's on Your Work Table" creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am also sharing at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, PDE - Kids Theme.

Aww! Certainly reminds me of your boy, with the baseball theme. Hope he enjoyed his summer. I am assuming it was filled with lots of ball playing and watching!
