You are SO Awesome!

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Coconut

Pile it On has a fun new challenge starting today - make something for a guy, with an emphasis on sports. well around here that is so easy to do! Our sponsor this week is Dude Time Doodles. Since all of my guys played baseball, Dave too, it was a given that this handsome pitcher was the fella for me! In fact, David was an all star pitcher back in high school. hmmmmmm..... wonder who this card might be going to? ;) Ryan was an all star player as well, playing 3rd base and pitcher. these days the guys are more into extreme sports like rock climbing, kayaking, long boards, and such.

papers are from the most fab Authentique Glory collection, that great metal senti badge is from Making Memories, chevron dies are MFT, patriotic bakers twine is from Etsy as is the coolio washi tape. I used my white gel pen to add some accents to the pitcher. the game ticket is from one of the Indians games Ryan attended earlier this spring. we do love our baseball! :) the stars were punched from a Starbucks coffee sleeve, inked with white craft, and then sprayed with glimmer mist.

Jennifer: Hi girl! Thanks for stopping by my blog this week. I have also been bad about "making the rounds" so I can relate, and completely forgive you. I love getting to to others' blogs to get inspiration from them, and I'm glad I stopped by. This patriotic card is just awesome. I see lots of your work, and am always smitten with it, but just need to get better about stopping by.

I would like to invite you to add one more challenge to your list (feel free to link this card and any others you choose). We do not limit the number of challenges you may combine and all your work is SO cute, I hope you will link it all. It's called Word Art Wednesday. We offer free scripture/word art, but you are not required to use it to play along. i would just be thrilled to have you join us. Then for sure I will be stopping by each week to see all your pretties. I do hope you will check us out and play along. Here is the site:

Hope you're having a great week, and thanks again for your sweet comments on my blog. It's so nice to hear from you, and I look forward to seeing more of you, my crafty friend.
