Way to go!

I'm back today to show you another stamp from the newly released Pink Cat Studio - Sporty Billy set. I have followed the great sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

This is such a fun set and perfect for those hard to make boy/men cards. I just love the cute little catcher! Billy and his little friend are coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The red, navy and green papers are pulled from various Basic Grey pads and the star paper was in my scraps drawer.

I have had the tickets some time now and these were sent to me from my good friend Heidi. I stamped the sentiment direct onto my dp and then to finish added white brads and a big white button. I added some waxed cotton in matching green to my button holes. The corners were cut with my SU photo corner punch.

Wow, this week sure has flown by again and I can't believe it's Thursday already!

Hugs,

I am so sorry that I have not been able to comment on your totally rockin' entries lately - my computer has so been on the fritz! Hopefully we will get it set soon. We go on vacation next week and my hubby does not want to deal with it until we get back. Just know I will catch up on all your awesome creations when I return on the 28th. Until then {{hugs}}
