What a beautiful day for 1, 2, 3 Ball Games!

My grandson is playing in another baseball tournament this weekend.  It was supposed to start last evening, but everything was too wet from a late afternoon gully washer.  So we were at the ball field at 8 am this morning to cheer on a great group of 9 yr olds.  Our boys won their first game.  I'm sure it was more due to their skill than our presence.  The next game is at 2 pm, and the third is at 6pm.  If they win at least 2 of the games, they'll be playing again tomorrow.  Luckily, we only live 10 minutes from this week's tournament location (sometimes we have almost an hour's drive) and can run home in between games to get a few things done i.e. my blog post. 

Perhaps this morning's ump could have used a second cup of coffee between innings.  (He struck poor Timmy out on 3 balls which he couldn't have hit if his arm was 12 inches longer.  Our grandson, Nick, pitched 2 good innings and got 2 real nice hits.)  Hence, I am dedicating this card to the umpire of game #1, which CP won despite some erratic calls. 

For this CAS card I've used a old digi image from Dude Time Doodles colored with markers, wrote my own sentiment and printed it on the computer.  Then, I just added some faux stitching. 

I'm putting this card up to bat at the following challenges, hoping I don't strike out today:
Creative Corner Challenges -  Just for Boys
Delicious Doodles Challenge #92 - Stitch It
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Keep it Clean and Simple
Try it on Tuesday Challenge - One for the Boys
Incy Wincy Design Challenge - Faux Techniques (stitching)

We're headed back to the ball park now.  Have a great day!
