A Baseball Legend

      My youngest grandson, in his earliest teens, is absolutely hooked on playing baseball - Little League, small local leagues -- baseball in any form is his one great passion at this point in life.  So, I don't have to tell you that when the spring and now summer leagues were cancelled, it was a bitter pill to swallow.   His skills have improved over the years (he was about 8 when he started playing) and he really is quite good at whatever position he plays now.  He seems to be something of a natural at it.

     As a consolation for him, small though it may be, I've made a card for him to show him how I feel about him.  :-D  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps.

Colored w/ ProMarkers and gel pens
Image and frame cut w/ Dare2BArtzy dies
Ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Hand tied sheer bow


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
