Want to know the reason for...

We designed it and built it ourselves, so I was still being creative, just in a different way!

Thank You Card For Softball Coach

To thank them, I made each of them this card with a little gift inside.
Colors: Black, White, Orange
Stamps: Softball, In The Game - Play Ball

I made the top 3 at Paper Cubed!

I entered the fishing creel in the June contest at P3 (Paper Cubed) and made it to the top 3!

I don't usually enter contests, so this is very exciting for me!

Have a great day!
