Play Ball!

It's another Sweet Sketch Wednesday! Today I'm celebrating the start of baseball season. My son has played the game since he was just a little guy and now is on the JV baseball team at our high school. The games started last week and he's doing great this season. He's a center fielder and as the coach says nothing gets by him! So I couldn't resist this terrific image from our sponsor this week, Fresh Brewed Designs.

Here's the fun and quick to put together sketch for this week's challenge. Another fab design by our own Arlana.
We welcome back Fresh Brewed Designs as our sponsor this week. It's been a while and we're so glad to have the opportunity to inspire you with Heather's images.  The Grand Prize winner of the sketch this week will receive three digis of their choice from the Fresh Brewed Designs store - a terrific prize!  Thanks Heather for your generosity.

The digi I've used is "Tommy Baseball" from Fresh Brewed Designs and was so much fun to use and embellish with baseball themed papers, balls and the small mitt.  The papers are digital from Jessica Weible Illustrations and the embellies are from Jollies Boutique.

I hope you'll play along with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Hop on over to the challenge blog and see all the terrific cards the design Divas created for your inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!
