Asian Artistry

Good morning, Friends! Another Monday is here. I am thinking that the summer is flying by way too fast!! My stamping mojo has slowed down the last few days and I need it to pick up again. So, I am planning on spending a few hours crafting today in my room. I have searched blogs for some new sketches and I am anxious to try them out. PLUS!!!!! My new goodies should come today and I can use some of that!! I also have to get some samples ready for the Royal Blog Tour that is coming up! If you would like to ride the tour to get some really great ideas and samples then you should really subscribe to the tour. The link is in the ad at the top of my blog. I am really excited to be a part of this!
Well, the baseball tournament starts today! Actually, tonight for us. I am so nervous for them!! Their last practice yesterday was kind of 'flat'. But it was like 100 degrees out there! Still, they could play in that heat so they need to know what it is like. Anyway, I finally ironed on his Fruita Little League patch and I think that I did it right. Oh, my goodness!! Yeah, this thing HAS to be exactly 3" from the top of this seam if it is this kind of shirt or 1" from this seam if it is this kind of shirt. And then in the middle of the the sleeve. But our sleeve has three different colors on it so is it in the middle of the blue part or the whole sleeve. And you think does it really matter (because that is what I thought). And the answer is OH YES!!! There have been incidents reported that rulers have been brought out at games to measure!! So was I a little freaked out when ironing it on? Answer... YES!! Then I heard of a girl whose grandma ironed hers on and burnt her shirt (they are 100% polyester). They had to pay to overnight her a new shirt. So, it is ironed on and all is good so far. I did notice that part of one of his letters to his name is starting to peel off and I might have to take it in to have them iron it down again. I tried last night but I stopped before something could happen. More little league news tomorrow...
Today's card is from a sketch I got at Stamping 411. I am really loving their sketches! I used this sketch for my card. I really liked the way it turned out. This set is a new hostess level 2 set, Asian Artistry. This is a super easy card! I stamped the main image and then used markers to just trace the lines. Cut out the dragonfly and a little sponging and there you have it! Have a great Monday!
