Unlike Sam the Ham I am not a girly girl, a just got her nails done, always in pink, to quote Mothermark in her write-up for the teaparty this week. More of a tomboy I was, always climbing trees and digging holes. But like Sam the Ham (and unlike Sam the Man) I don't have a sporting bone in my body - walking and swimming in the sea suits me just fine. So I thought that like me, Sam the Ham might need a bit of educating about all these sports.
I was convinced I had an image of Snoopy on a skateboard and was going to make a slider card, fun for a boy. But I didn't, so plan B was to make a plan of a baseball pitch, as the one and only sport-related stamp I ever owned was this little Slugger. Luckily I kept a half-dozen images before I RAKed the stamp to a new loving owner.
5 3/4" square base. Baseball pitch made with green and white card, circle and ticket corner punches, Nestabilities and embossing. I settled for just writing the positions on by hand. Slugger was coloured with watercolour pencils and stuck on. I added black borders down the side just to fill in the space.

Whoa! Dude, you still have your tounge? You need to keep that in your mouth cuz these pitchers are a little wild ever since the got into the .....well...the tea! If you flinch just a wee bit you might bite that right off and then how will you handle the hair ball issue???? Oh, by the way, what's the M stand for on your hat??? Team Mark will love it Sabrina! Woot....you did good with no sports stamps! I confess, I don't have any either but that doesn't mean I can throw a mean pitch!
