So I’ve been making a birthday card for a friend’s son, and the theme was cricket…. If I get stuck for an idea I usually go cruise around splitcoast stampers where there is masses of inspiration. I could not find one cricket card – Then I remembered it’s not such a popular sport in the US. So this is what I came up with. I found this cricket bat for sale online, a bargain at only $699, so I thought I would use that one! Of course it’s my paper pieced version.
