Star Birthday

Good morning, Friends! The weekend is almost here! So keep hanging on! I hope that your week has gone the way you want. Now for an All Star update... You know how you can just "tell" that things are not going to go the way they should? Well, that happened last night to our baseball team. They lost 19 to 6. Yeah, it was not pretty. When the boys were together before the game warming up they just weren't the 'same'. And as parents, we all just knew it. We were missing grounders and throwing the ball every which way and that's not how we were playing before. So, maybe it was good for them to lose one so they could see that they need to keep their head in the game. We have one more loss before we are out. That means the worse we could do would be third. Tonight we play a team that has lost once already but have been steadily climbing their way out of the losers bracket. This will be another tough one! I know we can do it but it's up to the boys!

Today's card is based off a sketch I got from the UDI blog. This is an old sketch but I really liked it. And it gave me a chance to use my new stamps! I just fell in love with the Seeing Stars stamp set and jumped at a chance to use it. This card was a little more time consuming than I had really anticipated. I punched out stars with my large star punch and small star punch and then glued them to the upper half of my card to create a subtle 3-D effect. I think it turned out pretty cool! I got my color combination from the Happy Bday scrappin' kit. Well, that's it for me today. I hope that you are inspired and get a chance to create. Thanks for stopping by!
