It was a scorcher here yesterday. Ann bailed on me & went to see my favorite ball player, Claire, play in a fast pitch tournament. Claire's the catcher & kept cook with a wet towel over her head when she wasn't on the field. (That hat must be hot!) (psst! Claire started stamping when she was 4.)
Just so you know – if your dog gets hot, lay a cool towel on his chest. We don't sweat like you do & it's the fastest way to help us cool off.
But the dog digresses….
It was a good time for Ann to try out the new zoom lens for my camera. You can click on any of these photos for a close up, but this next one shows you what a good bunter Claire can be. She should come over here & practice throwing MY ball, don't you think? Don't you think that this would be an excellent page for Ann to scrap? She doesn't see Claire much because we live 8-10 hours apart.
Besides getting ready for Ann's fair appearance, I also put the finishing touches on Gail's birthday card. Gail's an EXCELLENT pitcher when she comes to play ball with me & she deserves only the finest.
Which brings me to the subject of this post! This is a great style card to mass produce. The strips are 1" wide & 4" long. The border piece is 4-1/8" square. The ribbon is three to cover up any paper that doesn't layer exactly straight.
And here's the home run on this one… if you took a few sheets of Designer Series Paper – especially ones that you got for FREE when you purchased THREE – you could make TONS of these cards! One 12" square sheet gives you 36 of these strips! So just a few sheets would give you 36 cards!
Just perfect when you don't have a lot of time & have a long list of friends who need a kind word when they're aging gracefully. (BOL – Bark Out Loud!)
It's a grrrrreat time to be the blog dog of a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.
