Welcome blog hoppers! :)

This is a card I made for a contest on The Greeting Farm website. The contest was to think outside the normal square card layout. It was called "Don't be a square". :)
I found the tempate for the baseball cap here: http://houseofstirfry.com/chia/index.html.

I colored Ian (digital stamp) with my Bic Write-It markers. I am SO into those things! They are a fraction of the cost of Copic markers and work just as well!!

I cut the baseball on my Cricut (Circle), and then threaded red floss to look like stitching. It was actually very easy.

Enjoy the blog hop! (If you don't know what I'm talking about you can check it out here: TGF blog hop.)
