Batter Up, You're Invited!

We have a birthday coming up soon and my guy is a huge sports fan, so this is the invitation I have made for him. I'm excited about how well it turned out.

Baseball season is just starting around here, so he asked me to make a baseball card. I wish the picture better showed the inking on the card that I did to make it look like a well used ball. The background paper is from old We R Memory Keepers pad called MVP (Using It Up for the Little Red Wagon Challenge). I think this collection was one of the best collections of sports paper ever made and I have had it in my stash for awhile hanging on to it. The ball is from SVG Cuts Fun and Games kit. Mary is a master at making intricate cuts work like slicing butter, so I knew the threads in her baseball would cut just fine. I have a few more to make, but these are pretty quick to put together, so it shouldn't take long at all.

Thanks for dropping by! I also invite you to drop by my  Facebook and Pinterest pages or to find me on Instagram @mmirandcreations. They are all pages that make it easy for you to keep up with my crafty happenings!

Melissa, it has been a while since I told you how much I enjoy your creations! You know I'm a huge fan of your work. :o) This invitation is amazing and so perfect for your little guy! I'm a sports girl, so I was especially excited to see a baseball. I love the crisp stitching on the ball and your inking to make it well-loved. :o) Fabulous creation! Thank you for fluttering on by last night... it was a lovely surprise! I miss MCS so much... I think I always will, honestly. Five months later I still feel like something's missing! :/ I hope your day is filled with love and happiness, my friend!

Hugs and blessings,
