I suppose today is Thursday – duh! Jeanne and I left Florida on Tuesday morning and feeling pretty good, I decided to drive straight through. We pulled into my driveway around 1:00 a.m., Jeanne complaining of a sore butt! Yesterday was a do nothing type of day, just resting, napping and watching tv. Since I haven’t stamped in a week, I was ready to play a bit this morning. Of course, I had to reorganize what I took to Florida and get all the new stuff that arrived while I was gone carried downstairs.
Hanna Stamps is releasing four new sets tonight at midnight, and since I’ve been away, I needed to catch up a bit. So today, I have a preview of one of the new sets, Baseball Hanna. If you join in the Release Party at 9:00 p.m., in the Hanna Forum on Splitcoaststampers tonight, you’ll be able to see more previews as well as participate in challenges and chat.
I got lucky today when I saw that the Ways to Use it Challenge on SCS was to find ways to score your paper. How appropriate for a baseball card. I just had to score diamonds in the background – .
Once the background was scored, in 1-1/4″ squares, I stamped the smaller stamps from the set in the scored grid. The score lines were highlighted with gray ink, the same the edges were sponged in. Hanna and the baseball glove were colored with Copic Markers.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your day. I’m off to stamp a little more and I just might clean the kitchen. I could also stand to do a little unpacking and some laundry – but I do believe that stampin’ comes before that!
