His First Time On the Mound

Hi there...lots of pictures this week, and I'm sure there will be lots more with Easter being this weekend.  The "Pittsburgh Mangans" will be in town which means five cousins visiting and lots of fun time with our "Pittsburgh" and local cousins.  I'll be sure to share the pictures next week.

Today, I'm sharing pictures of Jonathon's game from Monday night.   It was his first time ever pitching.  He did pretty well.  He walked quite a few, but also had a strike out.  It is simply great to see their confidence grow as they try new positions.  So here he is!  I have to say I am thrilled with the new zoom lens I have for my camera.  I shot these pictures from left field and am pleased with the clarity!
I also have a new card to share using some new Verve goodies from their April release.  I have to say I love Verve...and yes I know I say this everytime I get something from them, but wow!  They process their orders quickly, always add an extra thank you stamp and their dies come with the perfect packaging so that they are easy to keep track off!'s my card inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch.  It's a little hard to read the sentiment, "My love for you only deepens through the years."  Have a wonderful Good Friday!  I hope you have a wonderful start to the holiday weekend!

I love those action shots of Jonathon on the mound! Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I haven't been keeping track of Verve's releases but I love their stamps, too. Off to check 'em out! :)

That is a gorgeous card, Lynn! Love the colors... and those stamps. I filled my Verve cart yesterday, but haven't decided if I really should push send yet... so many stamps and supplies, so little money... :)
Great pictures of the young pitcher. Looks like he has good form. I'm sure you're one extra proud mama! And you and your new lens did wonderfully from left field. :)
Have a blessed Easter, Lynn... and fun with all those cousins getting together!

Great shots of Jonathan's first time pitching! HOORAY! Glad you snuck a game in yesterday between the rain. Ours got rained out today, but I am a tiny bit glad.(devilish laugh). It would have been our third game this week!!!!
Your card is just gorgeous, Lynn!
Have a wonderful Easter.
