I like to accessorize...

Before I get to my cards today, I have a funny story to share with you.  As you can tell from above, Fall Baseball is in swing for Ryan.  We were chatting about it and he proclaimed, "I like fall baseball better than spring baseball because I can accessorize more."  I started cracking up laughing and asked him to explain.  "Well, I can wear different things because it is cooler out...wrist bands, arm warmers, you know."  I laughed out loud!  He does drive us a bit crazy wanting to accessorize, but being the mom of four boys I honestly never thought I would hear that!

Here are a few pictures of him on the field at Sunday's game.

Now onto my cards...this morning I have two anniversary cards to share with you.  I needed five different anniversary cards for my co-workers.  I like to give my team anniversary cards for big anniversaries (5, 10, etc.) years and I actually have five for September...so I set to work this weekend making a variety of CAS cards.  These are both inspired by the colors at the Play Date Cafe.

  1. I can't believe Ryan is only 13. He looks so grown up on the ball field!

    These are both awesome! Love the patterned paper you used on the first card and the twine and spatter of gems on the second. :)

  2. I guy does have to look good! My boy is the same way... sometimes changing his clothes up to 4 times a day just to look good! Both cards are lovely Lynn :)

  3. I've got to say that is kind of a funny statement...Love these cards. I am still in awe that you can create with the same color palette and come up with two completely different, completely awesome cards. I think you'd be an exceptional boss to work for.

  4. oh, yes!! Way to rock those colours in two fabulous ways!! Love them both equally!! What a nice boss you are :) I have to laugh about the accessorizing too :) It totally reminds me of the line from Steel Magnolias, "the only difference between us and the apes (animals?) is our ability to accessorize." I think that's how it went :) So glad he's enjoying the fall and actually I am too with more fun ways to dress than shorts and flip flops (although, I love those too ;)
