Card for kids and 2 more VCMP cards

Here's my card for the OWH Midweek Throwdown, which is to make a card for kids that has scallops on it. I used Sweet & Sassy Stamps' "Rhubarb the Teddy Bear" set, as well as DP from The Linen Closet (haven't pulled that stack out in awhile!) The quilt patterned paper is nice & soothing with the teddy bear, and I hope it makes a hero's little one very happy!
The next card is for the VCMP challenge to use a tool or stamp that has been neglected. I bought this package of inchie stamps back in June and had not opened the package; I also used one of my square punches which hasn't come out to play in awhile. DP is from one of the My Mind's Eye 6x6 pads. The sketch is from the OWH archive.
Our Washington Nationals have been doing great this season, so I thought I'd use this vintage baseball image from Digital Two for Tuesday for the VCMP sports challenge. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol. Haven't decided if I'll put any kind of sentiment on the outside or inside.
I'm also working on my Virginia card; I found a beautiful cardinal (state bird) at The Stamping Boutique. Waiting for my Glossy Accents to dry! See you soon.

Sheri, three winners. We both went with Rhubarb today for the Mid Week throw down. I just love him and love your color scheme. Your second card has such a nice vintage feel to it. I also have some inches that are still in their package. I'll have to dig them out. I adore your third card. I love that image and you did such a fabulous job coloring it. I would leave it just like it is without a sentiment. It's perfect the way it is. Great job on all.

Nice job on all three! Teddy bears are the best for children of any age and the DP IS soft and soothing. I bought the same package of inchies at the Scrapbook Expo in Del Mar, California, last spring. Thanks for inspiring me to actually use them. And the coloring on the last card is so nice! Love the vintage image ;)

Nice job, Sherry! I just love that sweet bear - he looks like the oldfashioned skinny bears that weren't so plush! - and that vintage baseball card is FAB. Love it!

Sherry, I love the inchies card! You were the one that got me making inchies Christmas cards last year. I need to pull those supplies out again and make a few. :-)
