Hey Batter, Batter.....Swing!

Meet Alyssa! She's a sneak peek for tomorrow's release over at InStyle Stamps. Isn't it fun to see a baseball girl image? I think she's super cute and when I saw her name I just HAD to have her! This little cutie shares my sister's name....but my sister spells her's Alissa!

I knew as soon as I saw Alyssa that I wanted to make a card shaped like a baseball glove. I am pleased with how the shape turned out. I free hand drew the glove, and just had to put Alyssa in pink and black. I know this card is pretty plain and simple for me....but I didn't want to take away from the glove shape and the cutie patootie Alyssa image. I also used my Twinkling H2o's on Alyssa's hat and uniform shirt which you can kind of see in the below picture. She shimmers a lot IRL.
Recipe:
Stamps: Alyssa from InStyle Stamps (to be release tomorrow)
Papers: Stampin' Up cardstock,
Tools: Just my trusty Cutterbee Scissors
Embellishments: Roses, baseball charm from Joanns, and Twinkling H20s.
Don't forget to check out the Summer Sale over at InStyle Stamps! There are some very cute papers and a couple stamps at a great discount!
Thank you to everyone who voted for my Cowboy project!! You are all the greatest, I hope I truly did inspire you! :)
Again, I want to say how sorry I am that I haven't been able to stop by all of your blogs and say hi. Only 4 more weeks after this week and I will be done with classes and can get back to bloggerland! :) I truly do miss you all!!! All of the wonderful comments you have been leaving me are really cheering me up after I come home from my long stressful days at school!
Thanks for stopping by!
