Happy Birthday Slugger

Good Morning!

Happy Birthday to my little slugger...the one you have heard me refer to as short stack. If you are a Mother, you can relate that birthdays have a way of making you wish you could make time stand still. In my case, in a blink of an eye I went from a diaper bag to a baseball seriously seems like it happened overnight. 

Well, as I stated in my post on Friday, I've been struggling to find a new balance in my life, and I didn't think I was going to get a card made for my son, but I did. He really pulled at my heart strings when he signed his friends card and said..."I really love that baseball player you used" after he went to bed, I sat at my desk and found a sketch and made the boy a card! Laundry, reports, and what the heck I am making for the bake sale will just have to wait...

The ribbon he picked out on one of the many craft store trips he has been dragged to and asked if I would make him a card one day using it. I didn't buy it that day, but I got it on another trip. So I hope he remembers and is surprised. 
The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Go Team.
The Glove and Ball is from PTI 7th Inning Stretch
Player - Silhouette Store

I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for inspiration.
Here is an action shot of the birthday boy.
I hope you have a GREAT day!
