Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Hello, hope your first day after the long holiday was a good one. I spent the morning cleaning and dusting through. Was a beautiful day, so felt obligated to pull some weeds in the yard in the afternoon. Despite the heat of the day, the nights are cooling off and there is a definite fall feel in the air. Today's card is for the House Mouse Challenge. The challenge was to create something based on the title of a song. What fun this was. I started by checking out all my house mouse stamps and when I came across this little guy, I decided on Take Me Out to the Ball Game. I printed the sheet music out from online (for free). I made it a lot smaller on my copier and tore around the edges and distressed. The circle behind the image I drew lines on and stitching to make it look like a baseball. The stars are stickers. Paper is from Nana's kids. Thanks for stopping by. Until tomorrow..........................

This is really cute, Sue! I love that image and how you colored it. Also the love how you printed off the music and distress it! Our Creative Corner is having a stars and stripes challenge, this would fit right in there for it too!

Sue, this is just perfection. You've done a fab job, as always -- and a great tip for downloading music, I've always wondered what would be considered "safe" insofar as sheet music is concerned, to use in our crafting. You've chosen a great song to use for this challenge and did your usual detail in everything, including "enhancing" the music.

Ohhh, that is a fabulous idea with printing off the music sheet, and I just love what you decided on for the HM challenge, you've coloured wonderfully, and enhanced that baseball perfectly. Great choice of papers for a male card.
