Sweet Sketch Wednesday #108

Wow! Things got really hectic this last week. We celebrated our daughter's third birthday and she had a blast. We got a castle bounce house and had the pool set up for her and her guests. They sure had a lot of fun, but boy! Was mom tired!!! All I can say though, is that it was well worth it to see the look on her face when that bounce house was set up and ready to go!

Here is my card that I am submitting to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. What a fun sketch! I had fun with this one as it reminded me of all the good times I had at summer baseball games with my dad. We always had a lot of fun!

Here is what I used:
Bugaboo Stamps Image: AKVtoobaseballtrio
Copics: 0, E37, Y15, R29, B29, E33, G07, YR04, and E00
Papers: DCWV Summer Dream Stack and The Shimmer Stack
Embellishment: Carolee McMullin scrapbook paper bought at Jo-Ann's
Ribbon: Michael's
Ticket for Sentiment: Cricut Cartridge Mickey Font

I hope that you like my card!

  1. Ohhh Erika, it really does bring back fond memories. Thanks for reminding me. We always had so much fun going together. Your brother is having a good time now playing on a city league. I am sure that is all part of the reason he loves it so much is because of your dad. Your card is super cute. I love that image. I love the little mit you have added for the embellishment. And your papers are perfect. So are your colors. I t was great to talk to you tonight.

  2. Hi Erika, what a cute card, I love this image, we don't play baseball so much in New Zealand as softball different size ball I think. Isn't it lovely that this image brings back so many memories. Glad your daughter had a great birthday party I do remember those days and not that long ago feeling so tired at the end of the day. My boys want parties for their 10th & 12th this year but we are taking them to Australia for a holiday instead which they don't know about and we leave in 11 days time. Great card I do love it, thanks so much for sharing your card with used at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week and good luck.

  6. Erika, so enjoying getting to know the regulars at SSW and looking forward to the next week's creation. I love baseball and this is the perfect card for that special basebal player. We don't have children, but our God sons are super into it. Whew, you made me exhausted just hearing about the party, I am sure you were wiped out...but so happy that everyone had a great time. Enjoy your holiday and looking forward to your card next week.
