The Cutting Cafe Baseball and Bat Shaped Card


Hello card makers.  Today I'm sharing a fun 2 card set perfect for any little boy.  I designed this set using The Cutting Cafe's "Baseball and Bat Shaped Card Set Template / Cutting File"


Regina at the Cutting Cafe is sooooo talented and if you have never taken a minute to hop over and check her out then you need to.  HERE.

Every monday is cyber monday and Regina bundles up some files and practically gives them away!  GREAT DEALS!  Every Wednesday her design team shares wonderful projects using the assignned files for that week and you can get a chance to win them by leaving a comment!  
So check out the blog HERE.



I teamed it up with some embellishments by Basic Grey "Hey Boy" and a Crafter's Workshop stencil (stars).  To create some of the star images I used a retired Gina K. Designs set.  



You can check out all the step by step details below if you want to.

I hope you are all having a great week.  This was the first week we have had cool mornings (60's) and it has been so wonderful to sit outside some mornings, do bible study and listen to the birds.  They are so loud around my house in the morning singing their happy little songs.  I was overwhelmed with a feeling of peace and happiness that was coming from such a simple morning.  I didn't have to go on vacation, just step outside on the patio.  So I took some time to thank God for this wonderful blessing.  I don't ever want to take it for granted because I know there are so many who don't have this awesome privilege.  

Hope all of you have your own little peaceful place where you can go and spend time with God as well.

Have a fabulous week!
Melisa
