Ten Little Fingers

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Another weekend is upon us. We have baseball plans this time around. Tonight we go to PNC Park and watch the Pirates play. They are the #1 team in baseball right now. So it should be a fun evening and it's our church outing. So we will be with friends. I think there are about 50 of us going. I hope the rain stays away.

Then tomorrow Ethan (youngest grandson) is in some baseball tournaments on our side of town. And the fields are 5 minutes from our house. So it saves us the 45 minute drive across the city. We may even have my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons here between games.

Ethan came over to spend the night with us. Right now he is with my hubby at our high school field. Batting practice and a little morning workout, then we have to take him home. He wants to stay all day but we couldn't get him a ticket for tonight's game. On the way over here last night, he said how much he loves coming to Grandma's house. And one of the favorite things is we stop at the grocery store and pick up some of his favorite snacks. Building memories for him that will last a lifetime.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for my Friday post on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog. This is my last one as a design team member for them. My 10 month term is over now. I can't believe how fast that time passed.

I read some statistics recently that the summer months are the top months for births in the U.S. August, June and July is the ranking. With those odds, I am sure to be invited to a baby shower. So, I decided to make a baby card today.

I just love this sweet sentiment stamp - "ten little fingers G49" from Great Impressions Stamps. It could be used for either a boy or girl. My card is using bright colors so I think it could go either way as well. The sentiment is stamped in pacific point ink. Cut with a Spellbinders oval die.

The designer paper is from Stampin'-Up's "sunshine and sprinkles" collection. I paired it with daffodil delight and pacific point cardstock.

I had these cute baby fet in my stash. I used a glue dot and placed them on a Stampin-Up corduroy button. The loopy edge is a die from the Cat's Pajamas.

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time........God bless.
