The Baseball, Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer Ball, Locker Card

Here is the card front with all three lockers closed.

Note the lockers are labeled 1, 2, 3 and at the bottom of each locker

is mom, dad, and baby's name) Sentiment is The Angel Company.

Here is the card front with the third locker open!

The balls on the left of the lockers are actually a tag. You pull the ribbon and the tag has

a Welcome Baby sign on the pennant. Since I don't know how to 'blur',

I just made a photo of the left and right of the tag.

This is the photo album.

I could not get a good pic of the inside. No matter what I tried, it looked pink.

Well, dear friends, there it is, the baseball, basketball, volleyball, soccer ball, locker card! Hope you like it! I pretty much cased this one from Melanie. It's not totally identical to hers, but it is very close.

I had also cased a card by Theresa Momber while working up samples for my friend to look at. When she did not pick that card, I took the image, and made a new cover for a photo album I picked up at the Dollar Store. Hopefully, it will come in handy for something! (maybe baby pics?)

Both Theresa and Melanie's cards can be seen on the Stamp TV site. Just go into the gallery, and type in "Sporty Accessories" in the search box. I'm not at all sure how to link them up on my blog, so I will send you that way!

Hope you've had a good day. It's football weather in Mo. Chilly, windy, overcast or rainy, depending on the hour of the day! I survived a trip to Wal-Mart, so I guess all is well! As my DD reminds me, I am certainly happy to be healthy enough, mobile enough, and wealthy enough to be able to go there and shop for 'the finer things in life'. I am, indeed, blessed!

Thanks so much for dropping by! Have a great evening - hope to be back tomorrow with a challenge card or two!

Fabulous Patti!!!! what an awesome design!!!

Okay, so I have to stop here for a moment and say (a) this is fabulous! and (b) get yourself an OTT table lamp (task lamp)... almost always on sale at Joann's... and shine it over your cards as you take the picture. Then, with a little help from your photo editing software (crop and contrast is usually all you need), you have perfect color every time!!!

OMGosh! This card is just tooooo cute! I agree with Lisa. I have an OTT table lamp that I was lucky enough to get for free when I bought a new sewing machine about five years ago. It's great for photographing cards late at night!I also use Picasa 3, a free program, which is great for editing.
