Gabriel Loves Baseball

 Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans. Pssst - it's one day closer to Fri-YAY!!!! Hang in there friends!

My post today features Gabriel Loves Baseball (S524) and a sentiment from Sentiment Set #3.  (U506)

I only played a little bit of baseball growing up, my game was soccer. When I think baseball, I immediately think baseball diamond so I set out to find an easel card that had a diamond base instead of a square/rectangle. 

I searched the web over and didn't find anything so I set about figuring it out. Had some trial and error but that's the fun part. 


I coloured Gabriel with Spectrum Noir markers and sponged some ink around him for the sky. I added the sentiment, some tan card stock (to look like sand) and finished it off with some baseball buttons (with the button hole cut off) and some stars.  I also added some ribbon that I painted with silver metallic paint to make it look like the chain link fence that is behind home plate. I added a hand made pennant which I remember always being "the thing to get" after attending a baseball game.
