Design Team ~ Baseball

Today is my day to post over at Connie Can Crop

This has been such a hectic month for me! I was hoping to get something posted to go along with Connie's theme, but unfortunatly I didn't. I am showing you my new favorite baseball shirt I made though! Both of my boys made it to the playoffs, and then advanced to TOC (tournament of champions). My middle son sadly was knocked out of tournament Tuesday night, but my youngest is still going strong!!! We have games every. single. night. It gets to be a lot sometimes but I love watching them! I made this shirt the beginning of the month to wear to their games! 

I designed this myself in Cricut Design Space.
 Used gray, white and red glittle HTV and just love how it came out! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I started off with a shaker card for my project today but while my boys and I were enjoying dinner last night, my dopey puppy Nova decided to eat it a bit (she really loves glitter!) Here is a small picture of it so you can see some of it...

So, after dinner, and after I made a great new shirt to wear to baseball today, I made a new one! I couldn't make another shaker as she also ate my foam tape! UGH! 

But, all is well, because I really do love the new one I made! 

I used a kraft cardstock base and added that fun, colorful paper to the front. I used my explore to write out my sentiment using a pilot precise pen (love not having to rely on cricut pens! I don't have many colors!). I ink the edges using Crystal Blue from close to my heart. The graduation cap is from Miss Kate Cuttables and was her freebie for Friday. I attached it using some pop dots for a little dimension. 

 Up next is Alicia
She always has something amazing to share! 

Here's our line up in case you get lost.
