Hoping your birthday is ...

Good morning, and Happy Monday to you all! Spring has finally arrived here in Northern Illinois, and I just love it! Windows open ... sitting out in the sun ... barbecuing = epic weekend! Now for this weeks Love to Create Challenge ...


Our Sponsors for this week are Dr. Digi House of Stamps and Dilly Beans Stamps 


My card features the super cool Slugger Sam from Dr. Digi House of Stamps. I'm not really a baseball fan so my card doesn't represent any of the teams out there. I just went with colors that I thought would make Sam POP! I pulled the colors from Sam ... Grey, Red & Black ... when choosing my cardstock.  The chevron in my design comes from an EKS Punch, and the stripes and sentiment come from a couple stamp sets that I own. We have Neat & Tangled's "On the Strip", and CAS-ual Friday's "Amazeballs".

Here's a look at the inside ...


The design for my card is based on the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #83.


The sketch was perfect for creating my masculine birthday card with Slugger Sam. Speaking of birthdays, Michele over at CAS-ual Friday's has an upcoming birthday so this weeks CAS-ual Friday's Challenge #99  is called Birthday Bash. Here's to a marvelous birthday Michele! {hugs}

Punches and Dies are one of my go-to crafting products, and I can't wait to see what you create with these products. Remember to share them with us over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog.

Until next time ... Enjoy!

Other Ingredients: Neenah Solar White (for Sam), Bazzill Maraschino and Papetry Ink Soft Stone cardstrock, Memento Tuxedo Black & London Fog ink.
