Hope You Had a....Ball Birthday Card for Grandma Skip & The Cutting Cafe

It's Grandma Skip's Birthday Today! My Mom assured me that it's perfectly OK that this card I made for Grandma is still sitting on my table and not mailed as of yet. In fact, I even used past tense when I stamped the sentiment!

She knows I'll add chocolate though so perhaps she thinks that will keep me out of hot water!

This card has many layers.....can you see the bottom layer which is a baseball? And the stamping that is under the chippy "love you" and some clear acetate? And then there is the vintage baseball ticket I downloaded to use as well. Also check out the super amazing sweet flower from Lisa over at You Made Me Ink.

Two cutting files were used on this card from THE CUTTING CAFE. The BASEBALL AND BAT SHAPED CARD SET have that lovely baseball and are super simple to use. Lisa's PAPER FLOWER TEMPLATE was featured last week at THE CUTTING CAFE

If you look PAST the card, you will see snowmobile tracks in the snow that has STILL NOT LEFT YET. We are trying to make the best of it and having a little play in the snow while we wait for spring! ;-)

I finished stamping the inside and added a photo of the kids and I.

I tried to go all Hallmark on it so completed it reads:  I Hope You Had a Ball!

Happy Tuesday!
