Lucky Me and Hugs

First off, I want to share my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. 
 Lawn Fawn is the sponsor.  I have adored their stamps for awhile now but just never had the opportunity to play with any. I picked this wonderful sentiment set for my card.  I love sentiment stamps, rub-ons, stickers, anyway I can get them.  Most often they are one line, simple sentiments like Happy Birthday or Thinking of You.  Sometimes it is fun to have a larger sentiment that becomes the focus of your card and these fit that bill. 
 I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities label to show off the stamped sentiment, the edges were rubbed with stamp pads to help show them off.  I love this patterned paper by Graphic 45, I used both sides of one piece. 
 For my next card, I wanted to play in the "Chevron" challenge at Moxie Fab.  The above sample gives you an idea of what they are meaning when they say "Chevron". 
 I took one piece of patterned paper by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker and cut it apart.  I thought that by cutting along the design and staggering layers of it, gave a look similar to the "Chevron" example. 
 Here you can see where I left the layers 3 dimensional by not gluing it all down.  The letters for HUG are Thickers.  They were actually white but I rubbed them with a yellow stamp pad and then coated them with Aleene's Paper Glaze
And now for a few photos...
 It is Baseball season around here and we have two grandsons playing.  I caught this adorable glance from this one as he was walking out on the field to take his place. 
 This one is running somewhere, not sure if it was running the bases or not. 
And, this one is just taking it easy watching one of the others run around.  No cares!!!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Awesome cards, Linda! Really like your CPS card with that pretty paper and the large sentiment. I'm like you, I just adore sentiments, too. Really like how this large one becomes the focal point.
And what a fun chevron design card. The way you cut and layered your paper is so eye-catching. Love the dimension.
Great photos of your grandsons!
