The Boys of Summer

Hello friends! I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day weekend. I cleared 4 yucky ant-attracting shrubs (viburnum)  and countless daylilies from a flower bed that will become an herb and tomato bed. Yay! I've missed fresh herbs and home grown tomatoes and really look forward to their yumminess.

Our theme this week is "Sticks & Stones/For The Boys", and the Beary Scrappy Girls are challenged to make a project that is boy-related. I found this "Digital Pencil, Too" image ages ago and have looked  forward to using it.

I'm really pleased with this card. Admittedly, I didn't see "boy" when I received my Pink Paislee 365 paper pack, but it worked out really well. My little baseball player is double layered - luckily it doesn't weigh him down as he sails through the air! Notice the orange "8" on his shirt? It's my homage to Cal Ripken Jr., one of baseball's greats and a hometown hero. :)

Card Recipe
Well, that's it for me! I hope you come back all week for more fun and fabulous creations for the boys. Don't forget that our current challenge is on until the end of the day on May 14th. The theme is May Flowers and you can find all the details here. I hope to see you again!

Cheers,
Susan
