Sporty Box Card

Hi, welcome to my blog! I hope that you are enjoying this lovely summer weather. We actually have had two days of sunshine with several more sunny days predicted for the future!!!YEAH!  I wanted to try a "box" card...with my grandson's birthday coming soon, today was the opportunity'
 I must apologize for the darkness of the pictures. I am having difficulty uploading pictures from my camera so had to use my cell phone. We just purchased a new computer with Windows 8 and I understand that I will have to spend some time on how to upload to Picassa. This usually is an easy process but not with the new Windows 8....
My grandson loves baseball and is on at least two leagues. I hope that he will enjoy this special card.

There is also a sentiment and his name on the back of this card. I really enjoyed making this and it truly was easy. I am sure that I will make more soon!

Materials Used:
