SSS 212

 
Welcome to this week's sketch from the The Sweet Stop. 
 This card was inspired by the patriotic program my 3rd graders have been practicing.  I was singing,  "What's more American than baseball" which inspired me to pull out Sweet 'n Sassy's  All Star Cocoa stamp set.  The baseball theme gave me the inspiration to turn the large circle into home base.  Home base made me think of all the military men and women coming home from over seas.  Thinking about the military and patriotism provided the color scheme.  I realize I took some artistic license with the sketch, but I am truly satisfied with how it turned out!  

Now it your turn to use this week's sketch!  Be sure to check out the other DT's creations to see other fabulous ways to interpret this sketch!

  6. How cute is this? Love the little mouse peeking over the ball. You know, the first thing I thought of when I say this was how you could turn it into any sport and use it for homecoming. It could also easily be used for a soldier returning home! Thanks for sharing and playing along at Little Scrap Pieces!
