Mojo Monday & Birthday

Good Wednesday morning everyone,

Here's my card for the Mojo Monday 111 Contest.  I had to make a birthday card so I combined my efforts - two birds, one stone.

I bought this cute little Greeting Farm ball player from Scrappin Great Deals.  These stamps are so adorable with their oversized heads.  My son loves baseball (he has a normal size head - LOL.)  It was easy and fun to colour up the large surface areas.  It was also easy to cut him out and pop him up.  The paper and embellishments were from my stash - don't remember those details.

Here's a closer view of Batter Ian.  There wasn't too much fuss with this card.  I kept it simple (I fought the urges to glitter it up!)  I did give the star a coating of glaze, which can be seen in the closer view.  I hope my brother likes it.  It's a little boyish for a grown man, but I know he'll get a kick out of it - and he used to be an awesome ball player, so it fits...  Did I say "used to??"  I meant that he still is awesome!!

Have a great day.  Thanks for stopping by.
