Hello blogging friends. A quick post to show you a card I made for a Great Nephew for his
10th birthday.  The party was Sunday at a beautiful park and the theme was Sports.  He is an avid baseball, hockey, soccer player.  This is the card I made for him to celebrate his day.

I cut two circles with Spellbinders dies to make a circle card.
I laid the circle on some red paper and traced half a circle then moved it
over 1/4 inch and traced again. Cut it out and adhered it to the
card cutting off the excess.  Used a red gel pen to make the
stitching on the baseball.  Image is a Mo Manning Digi.  I
computer generated the sentiment.  Inside sentiment said
"One birthday is worth 10 regular days"  He and his Mom
both loved the card.

That's it for me today.  Have a great day.  Thanks
for stopping by today.  Until later...........

Sometimes it's difficult to make cards for pre-teen boys, but you really nailed it! Great card and creative sentiment.
