In my post for the recent OWH spring training blog hop- I mentioned (kind of whined!) that I was hoping for some cards about baseball. I used twine around the die for my ducks that day and Cheryl commented that the twine around the circle reminded her of a baseball! LIGHTBULB! Thank you Cheryl- I have since made several Father's Day cards with a baseball player and a smaller circle die with twine! You have created a monster- I love threading the twine thru the holes- simple, quick and fun-and it does remind me of the stiching on a baseball! I ran out of the red and white twine...but I have plenty of this red cording!

Don't ya just love the determination on this little boy's face? I can just hear the crack of the bat connecting with the ball-- it's out of here!

Have a wonderful week- and a heartfelt thank you to all of the members of law enforcement and the citizens of Boston, Watertown, Cambridge and all of Massachusetts for the capture of the bombing suspect.
Boston strong!
Craft on!
