Happy Friday!

Well, hello there.  I don't know about you, but I kept thinking about those poor people at Google trying to get Blogger back up and running.  Thank you Google employees.  I am sure it was not fun trying to restore the system back to its original state.  I'm looking forward to sitting down tonight and strolling through my Google Reader...it's amazing what a 24 hour withdrawal can do to a girl :)!

Now...onto my card for today.  I typically don't do vintage very well, but wanted to play along with Judith's Jay Gee Challenge.  I adore her designs.  Here is my card for the challenge.  Love the black and cream together.  And of course, my favorite Stampin' Up Ribbon for the double bow. 
I also wanted to leave you with some pictures from Ryan's baseball game last night.  They actually aren't of the game, but rather the dug out.  It was a warm night (I think we skipped spring and went straight to summer) so I had Marcel take his shirt off.  He loves to hang out with the big boys.  I think this picture of him sitting on the bucket of balls and Pat (the head coach) concentrating on the boys out in the field.
Collin and Ryan (after pitching four great innings with only one run scoring) are on the bench too.  A family affair...
Coach Doug giving directions to the team...and Marcel flying an airplane.
A gorgeous night for baseball....
