Happy Tuesday everyone. This week we are heading to Stamford, Connecticut and sending our cards to Officer Troy Strauser of the City of Stamford, Police Department. Officer Strauser was critically injured after falling more than twenty feet from a bridge abutment during a foot pursuit of a robbery suspect. He landed on a guardrail and ended up face down on the pavement after the fall. He underwent 3 surgeries in less than 18 hours & spent seven days in the ICU.
We were asked to bring anything that has to do with baseball, peanuts & cracker jacks, Penn State, pinstripes, the Nittany Lion, pumas and mountain lions.

What a wonderful vintage image!!! It reminds me of the movie with Kevin Costner, "Field of Dreams." Your coloring is so lovely and I really like that diamond shape behind the image! I bet you planned that!!! Great design!!!

I like your lions!! And love the image - it reminds me of one of the Marx Brothers' films, those vintage sports costumes. Well, I guess the photos I have of my grandfather playing rugby aren't all that different, LOL.
