August Monthly Mix Challenge

My card today was created for a dear friend’s birthday and also for Gina K’s August Monthly Mix Challenge hosted by Mindy Eggen. Mindy is challenging us to create a card using the design concept of “White Space”. So after watching some videos this is the card I decided upon. My stamps are from GKD’s Hello Sunshine STVKit, cardbase is Tranquil Teal and inks are Ocean Mist, Lemon Drop, Key Lime and Tranquil Teal. I added some GKD Vanilla Ice sequins and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onxy Black ink.

Plenty of White Space and CAS, too.

Hard to believe it’s the middle of August already. One day seems to blend into another but we had the opportunity to watch our grandson play some baseball. I was very impressed that parents were socially distanced, wore masks, the players knew as soon as they went into the dugout to cover up with their masks. The end of game all of the boys lined up on the baseline and tipped their hats. Chase had a good game, 2 hits, 3 stolen bases, caught an infield pop-up for an out, 1 RBI but unfortunately hit two batters. He was so upset but sucked it up to finish out the inning. At the end of the game the coaches brought the two boys together and they had a moment of good sportsmanship and gave a “guy” hug to each other. Oh how these 9 and 10 year olds can show the world all good in it and in each other.
