Red Sox Fan Meets Yankee Fan

There comes a time when you have to put the rivalry aside and make a card that will certainly brighten up a Yankee Fans day.  I grew up watching and loving the Red Sox because of my Dad.  He was a die hard Red Sox fan.  Now in my house we have two Red Sox Fans and two New York Met Fans. 
This card is going to a 9 year old boy who has had a brain tumor removed just before Christmas.  He is the son of one of my punchkateer friends.  I have had this idea for a while but no time to put it together.  I finally did it this weekend and will be sending this out on Tuesday.

 I had my son look through some of his baseball cards and came up with some Yankee Baseball cards to include in this card.  I wanted a cool way to include them.

So what I did was take some A2 cello bags and layered them together and sewed them into the inside
of the card on top of where I will be writing my greeting.  I showed it to my boys and they thought it was cool.  I am hoping for the same reaction from my recipient.  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today.  For those of you with tomorrow off-enjoy your day.  I have to go to work but I have lots to do...I need to be  See you soon!!!
