Play Ball!

Hi there! I'm here to share another project with you featuring a new Cat's Pajamas stamp set titled Play Ball. I love sports, and while I can't pick just one, baseball has been part of my heartbeat from a very young age. You see, I was the first girl in Texas to try out for the boys high school team. I was a pitcher, and I loved it! Alas, the UIL (entity that standardizes rules) ruled that I could not be awarded the position. My coach was very sympathetic and so I kept the books and stats for awhile. Aaaah summer.


I love that big-eared bunneh!! I couldn't wait to make him the star of my show. How cool is this for all those summer parties, birthday card needs, and even Project Life journal cards?




I wanted to keep this old-school, back when the uniforms were made from flannel and embellishments were limited. Most teams couldn't afford to have names stitched on the jerseys way back in the day. One team, my fave, plays in pinstripes at home, and still ascribes to the belief that you don't need your name on the jersey because you play as a team. Values!

I loved this Authentique paper because it had pinstripes, baseball diamonds (stitching), and patchwork that always accompanied our game-worn clothes. That juicy ball is big and coming right down the middle and the big-eared bun has it all sized up, so...

PLAY BALL!
