Baseball Birthday Card

Hello all~

{Thank you to Retro Sketches for giving this card a "Shout Out" on 9/12/15}

I know I have pretty much been MIA. Life takes over and summer was busy, out-of-state baseball tournaments, and during his break from baseball, my son and I went on a three week road trip...then my beloved computer just stop working on our warning...just the end of it's life cycle. So with school, and baseball starting back's taking some time to sort out getting a new computer and getting my files off the old. I had to have an expert start working on it since the thing would no longer power up.

Having said that...I have not been around to visit or post, so I am sorry.

I was forced back into the craft room since my son has a birthday party to go to this weekend. I have not been in there in almost two months. I worked ahead for some DT assignments, so I had to really knock the dust off.

Inspiration was provided (thank goodness), by Retro Sketches!
I used the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge for the ball and bat, and the sentiment is from Jaded Blossom.
As mentioned, inspiration found at Retro Sketches
I hope you have a TERRIFIC Thursday!
