Baseball Piled High!

Today I discovered some new challenges and got to play in some old favorites so it is a good day. To top it all off, my Pop is going to get to eat hotdogs and potato salad or whatever he wants today. After several months of being on a feeding tube, getting to chew and eat real food is a true freedom to celebrate.

My card is made with the Dude Time Doodles RBI Robby image and I paper-pieced and layered the image after coloring it with Copics and SU! Markers. I also used the pennant which can be purchased dirt cheap!

One of the new challenges I found this morning is the Pile It On Challenge - the goal is to make a card that meets the rules of more than one challenge. You can win a $10 gift certificate to Dude Time Doodles if you win which makes the challenge even more fun!!! So here are the wonderful challenges I met with this card:

Dude Time Doodles - Fun in the Sun (make a card showing Summer fun)
Pile It On #27- For a Guy With a Sports Theme
Totally Paper Crafts - Use a Digi
Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS (MMTPT#205) - Take Us Out to The Ballgame (my card is going to the Destination Station of the week - Troy Strauser, a policeman severely injured on the job in Stamford CT - he loves baseball)
Sketch Challenge #392 at SCS (SCS392) - I used the awesome sketch to make this card

I think this is a record for me! Wish I could have found a challenge to use Yogi Berra sayings - they are soooo fun!

Hugz to all!
