Happy Anniversary, Love You Tons! (STS #27)

Hello Delightful friends and family!
What a quick month this has been! The grandkids are back in school (except Princess Tucker) so I'll have a bit more free time (well, in my mind anyway...) it seems I can always fill up that "free" time with housework and getting caught up on some work at the church.  I'm getting my craftroom organized, one area at a time, that's exciting!  My sweet hubby and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary last Friday and here is the card I made him.  I used the sketch from Seize the Sketch challenge blog.  This is their last challenge, they are closing down (bummer!) I really liked following the inspiration over there.  Here is the card for their last challenge:
 I paper pieced the elephants instead of coloring them.  This stamp set is from Lawn Fawn.

 Inside sentiment is from Paper Smooches and I colored the hearts lightly with a Copic Marker.

I will also be entering this at Word Art Wednesday #147 Anything Goes

The last few baseball seasons we've been going to a couple of San Francisco Giant games each year and we always try to schedule our trip for Fellowship Day at AT&T Park where the Christian ballplayers share their testimonies. The last three years have included a concert with a popular Christian music artist.  This year was Natalie Grant.  Wow!! It was great!  Here are some pictures I took of the game on Friday night and two following the Saturday game for Fellowship Day.  Some of the proceeds for the event went to the Salvation Army and the athletes paid for the concert.  Pretty nice and a real blessing!

We had a wonderful time with our friends the Clarks and hope to go again next summer, thanks to the San Francisco Giants organization!  Go Giants!

Thanks for visiting and letting me share a bit with you!

Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: "The Lord knows those who are His" and, "Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity."  2 Timothy 2:19
