'Coach...you hit a homerun!'

It's the Wednesday Whimsy Haven Blog Hop...and you scored with all the Design Team's eye candy today!  You should have come here from Amy's grand slam blog, right?!  Have YOU been to Whimsy Haven yet?  Have you seen Lindsay's digital images?  You'll sure hit a home run if you visit Whimsy Haven!  Oooh, and don't forget...there is an image for $1...TODAY only!

Heehee, okay, many of you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE baseball!  My son practically plays it all year round 'cause...yes, we can, here in Phoenix (seriously, you get used to the heat)!  Since we play so much baseball, we ALWAYS need a 'COACH' card, so I decided to play again with the Field of Dreams set.  Now seriously, can you just think of a million things to make with these images?!!!

For my 'COACH' card I made an easel 'spinner' card.  What?  What am I talking about?  Well here..take a look, this is the front of the card (I put all the images together in PSE) and I made this into a little game...a spinner game...you play baseball by spinning the bats and whichever word the tip of the bat lands on that's your play (mine landed on a homerun, of course!):

Here is a close-up of the 'spinner bats' that I made:

This pic is the 'easel' card sitting on the coach's desk ready to play (the white space is where you would write your message):

And here is the entire inside of the card:

I needed a sentiment so for the inside, so I just typed up 'you hit a homerun!' and 'COACH' on my computer. ALL OTHER IMAGES ARE THE FIELD OF DREAMS SET, WHICH HAS 10 IMAGES~score!!!  Leave a comment on the DT blogs for a chance to win Journal Card Set!

Now if you want to see someone who hits it out of the ballpark every time, run to the very talented:  Jenny @ wee Memories!

Hope you have a Whimsy Haven kind of day!
