Boys Will Be Boys

Hi everyone and a warm welcome to my new followers. I'm so happy you chose to join me.   I must apologize for not being around these last few days.  Life's been kinda crazy with dance recitals, doctors appointments and a lovely 4 day visit with our oldest granddaughter which is always such a pleasure.....but I'm back now and can't wait to make the rounds and visit you all!

In the meantime...I do have a few exciting things happening for me and the first is I was accepted as a new DT member of the wonderful Cards for Men Challenge.  I find I really enjoy making masculine cards so thought this would be a good fit for me to join this great team.

The current challenge #12 is sponsored by The Paper Shelter who are offering a $20. gift certificate to the winner

The Paper Shelter :: Digital stamps, Papers, Printables, Scrapbooking, Greeting cards, Accesories and More!

I've used "Happy Times - Baseball" for my card today and just loved colouring up this little pitcher! Don't you just know by the grin that the next ball will be a strike!
