Basketball Herb

Happy Friday folks and a happy start to the Memorial Day weekend for those of you in the U.S.  This holiday weekend is always so fun as it signals the near-end of the school year and the near-start of summer.  We're due to have nice sunny and warm temps here in Michigan and I'm just planning to relax and enjoy every bit of it!

I can't think of a better way to start off the weekend than showcasing the new release at StampFairy.  The adorable teddy, Herb, is back.  This time he's playing basketball - like many folks will do this holiday weekend.

Here's the entire Herb Basketball collection just released today at StampFairy.  That wonderful basketball is a freebie!  This set is so perfect for all those sports-lovin' guys out there.

On my card, Herb and the freebie basketball were colored with Copic markers.  I had the fun papers here that are textured to resemble actual basketball material and the photo image paper of basketballs.  Both have been in my stash forever and I'm so glad for a fun image like this to pull them out and use them.

.
I was inspired by this layout from Sketches by Carly.  I could visualize Herb and that basketball freebie instantly in this sketch when I landed on the Sketches by Carly site this morning. My card is being entered in their challenge #57 that started today.

Now make a stop over at StampFairy World where you'll see more fabulous cards created with this new Herb Basketball collection by the StampFairies.  Some great inspiration there!  Enjoy the weekend and be safe!

Thanks for stopping by!

So cute. I just did one for my BIG Guy. My son is turning 34 & I am looking for who did the digi so I can give them credit on my blog. I ran across yours though & had to comment. I love it! :)
