Cute Card Thursday ~ A Sporting Chance

I finally got around to trying out a stair fold card! Been meaning to try it for ages, the Sporting Chance theme over at Cute Card Thursday was the perfect opportunity! I used cute Baseball Connor by Whimsy Stamps, love him! You can see some Whimsy sneak peeks of the fabulous new animal and kids stamps next week on the design team blogs, we each have a day to show a new stamp! I can't wait to see the other stamps made up, so far only seen the images but I promise you will love them! The new stamps go on sale on June 1st!

The stair fold card was based on this tutorial at Ashleys Creative Corner. The netting is rescued from an old trampoline net. The papers are Basic Grey and Stampin'Up. The silver brads are from a SU hodgepodge hardware set.
Over at CCT you can win a 3 month subscription to Scrapbook News and Review E-zine! YOu should really check out this site, it is full of information, it has 2 DT calls on the homepage at the moment!
Our fabulous guest designer this week is Susie Sunshine many thanks to Sue for joining us this week, her card is adorable.
Please pop over and check out the rest of the DT cards, they are fantastic as always!
Hope you have a great thursday!
