Thank you~


Well, I have been deep in mass producing Thank You cards for my son. His birthday was on the 10th and he had a birthday party on Sunday with his travel ball teammates as well as a few others he has met through other baseball teams he has been on.  So it only seemed appropriate to make a simple baseball thank you card.  It's pretty much all the boy talks and reads about even in the off season.

The key to mass producing is quick and simple in design. I was also determined to use up some scraps. Other than the card base, everything else was from my leftover pile. Yay...still no dent was made. Boo!

Here is one of many and the rest are still in "production" as I type this.
 I started with a Blackboard Card base, and added my patterned paper onto a panel of Brown Kraft Cardstock.  I used the same Kraft to cut out the Thank You from My Creative Time.  The baseball is one that is in my files from the Silhouette Store. 
It's a work in progress that I hope is complete by the time this goes live! :-)
Nice and flat for mailing! 

This is the month for giving thanks, my son has a lot to be grateful for...friends and family that are far who could not be here yet showered him with gifts, a wonderful baseball team that makes him feel like family, and the opportunity do what he loves 9 months out of the year!

I know you see a lot of baseball cards on here, but it's our love!  I love that I have the opportunity to make something special for all those in our son's life that share the same passion. It's why we do what we do. Right now we are missing it! If you missed yesterday's post, click here. I actually share some "personal" photos. My son got to meet  a Pro baseball player.  A day we will always remember!

Thank you for letting me share what I am working on!  Many of you know I have been struggling with balance lately! Still working on that and finding my mojo!

Great cards for your son, Tammy. It sounds as if he loves baseball better than anything. They are the ones who get scholarships and go pro because they are so dedicated to the game. Fingers crossed.

I think it's so wonderful that your son has found something he's so passionate about.... and love you share that passion with him! These are absolutely adorable, Tammy, and so perfect for his birthday thank you's. Love the baseball. And love the pretty sentiment font. And bonus points for using up scraps, too!
