Let the Season Begin...

Ingredients:  SU Whisper White Paper, Pear Pizzazz Paper/Ink; Kraft Ink; Clear Embossing Powder: Hero Arts Stamps; PTI Fillable Frames; Creative Imaginations Birch Paper

Happy Monday...I'm popping in with a card that fits the bill for two challenges:  The Play Date Cafe and PaperTrey PlayHouse Monochromatic Challenge.  This is one of my all time favorite Hero Art stamps - I stamped in white craft ink and then clear embossed it.  I just purchased this wood paper...yummy.  I had stayed away from it for a while thinking it wouldn't be easy to work with in my Sizzix.  Boy was I cut so easily.  I used it for a few other projects this weekend and will be going back to buy more.
Now...onto our weekend.  Saturday was rainy so we were 0-3 on the baseball game front.  Collin's game was the only one that got rescheduled on Sunday.  It was his first "official" baseball game and I took tons of hold tight!  First up...playing catcher...
 Throwing the ball back to the pitcher...
 At lefty.  He had great at bats...a nice hit down the third base line and two walks.
 On first...ready to run.
 Running to second...
 Getting a high five from his coach for making it to third...
 At third...look at that tiny little behind...he is so skinny...and adorable in his uniform.
 He made it home...
 And then he needed a was only 60 degrees :)...but it took a lot of work to get around those bases? :)
 Back on second again...I love the second baseman with his hat turned around backwards....
And the last inning, playing second!
A great start to the year!
