Just a little thank you

ETA -(edited to add ) to Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger, these colors are so in right now aren't they fab!! or should I say Moxie Fab

Over at One Stop Craft challenge they want you to make your own back ground, for the front of my card I embossed then sanded it and for the inside I embossed then brayered with ink.
Totally PaperCrafts wants to see you make your own flowers, I used the pansy punch for mine and I made the mini peachy ones with a mold.
Anything goes at Through the Craft Room Door.

baseball, apple pie and chevrolet

Ok , this is just the baseball part, anybody else remember that commercial ?  I thought I would do a layout with Americas favorite pastime (not so sure, now it might be fb, ha)

This is my youngest. ,my baby, not so small anymore.  The ball field is his second home, many hours spent there.  I used Studio Calico stencil and sprayed Tim Holtz sailboat blue colorwash on it, love the vibrant contrast.  Then stenciled on some more with TCW chicken wire stencil, which to me looks like fence.  Then added the border and embellies, super simple , when I was making this I kept looking at thinking I need to add more stuff, it's too plain but I really liked the visual impact the clean and simple look made, so I left it.  Oh, and the red star that was my sons touch, I kept wanting to put a blue star there and he was insistant that the red was better, he won :)

Red, White and Blue is the challenge theme this month at Scrap It Girl.  Come on  get into the swing of things (bad of me huh?) and enter this month.  Make sure to check out the rules so you don't strike out (shame on me). You might just end up being the Allstar (I can't stop) for the month of July and hit a home run (ok I'll stop) by taking home this prize. 

Some other challenges you may be interested in checking out.
Now if you head on over to Brown Sugar Challenge the theme there is boy/man.
At Charisma Cardz you can enter anything as long as you follow the challenge of 3,2,1.  My 3,2,1 is 3 baseballs, 2 stencils and 1 spray mist.
There's a masculine challenge going on over at Come and Get It.
If you use a mask or masking technique you can enter over at My Time To Craft challenge.
Captured memories is the theme at Our Creative Corner , you must use a picture.
