Baseball fanatic

You may or may not be a summertime baseball fan, but this adorable penguin from Crissy Armstrong of Whimsy Stamps is sure a "heart stealer", if not a "base stealer"!   I decided to keep this as a masculine card, so kept my embellishing to a minimum (guy cards are generally not much FUN, are they !!), and stuck to a scrap of baseball paper, and some die cut stars.  Have a safe and happy summer, all.

  1. Gorgeous card, love the baseball paper and fab colour combo. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous creation with us at Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenge. So lovely to see your sweet entry pop up there. Hugs, Wends xoxo Whimsy Stamps DT

  2. This Crissy Armstrong penguin truly is a heart stealer Lillian. I like how you add the baseball paper layer to the background. It really complete the card handsomely! I always have difficulty with boys cards perhaps because of the color choices. But you make it look so easy creating cute and fun boy cards Lillian. Hugs.

  3. Hi Lillian, a fabulous card for any baseball loving boy, quite right about masculine cards being hard to make. Thank you for joining us at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends... good luck in the prize draw... Megan DT LPoCF

  11. Lilian, another fantastic job of colouring and card making! You are right that guys don't always want the fancy embellishing - my hubby is an exception - he expects a lot of die cuts, pearls and ribbons on his card, lol! He's comfortable with his more feminine side I guess, ha ha! Thanks for joining in the Whimsy Challenge again!
