The Little Moments

Hi All!  I've got a little Father's Day card to share today.  Please excuse the blurry pictures- I'm not really sure what happened but I have a sneaking suspicion that it probably has to do with the fact that I was running late for father's day brunch (of course!) and was trying to take these photo's super fast so I could get on the road as quickly as possible...note to self: don't wait to the last minute to take blog pictures :) 

I was lucky enough to win a TON of stamps from the always generous Kellie over at Tickled Pink Stamps and just knew Lil Pinkette Tom Boyz Baseball Pippa would be perfect for my Father's Day card for my dad.  I wanted to thank him for all the T-Ball games he sat through cheering me on when I was lazily doing cartwheels in the outfield.  And for all the softball games where I always seemed to get hit by the ball at one point or another (seriously-I'm like a magnet!).  He was always present for the big and little moments when I was growing up and was seriously my biggest fan....in fact he still is one of my biggest fans!  It was so much fun to make a card that celebrates that :)  Love you Dad!

This is one of the cutest images I've ever seen! Your colouring is fabulous. Loved reading your
T ball/soft ball story - my son plays and I can totally relate.

Thanks so much for playing with us at Just Add Ink.
