Oh, Happy Day

Just a quick post tonight! We had a busy week going to several Pirate games, and saw the Bucs take over first place in the MLB. It's been a long time coming, but baseball is alive in Pittsburgh! My son, a fan through thick and thin, is loving it.

I participated in two challenges with this card, ColourQ and Freshly Made Sketches. I'm a sucker for banners in a layout, and the inspiration image was so great and lively I couldn't wait to get to my supplies.


The card isn't quite how I pictured it, and I'm not so sure I really like it, but if I only posted cards I loved, it might be even longer between my posts. I can be my own worst critic!

Let me know what you think. Until next time, let's go Bucs!!
