Multi Challenge Card/DT's

Hello everyone, this is one of my new stamps I recieved from the lovely Denise at Whimsy stamps. I'm working my way through them and this is the 3rd one I have now inked up. He's called "Baseball Connor" and can be purchased from The Whimsy Stamp Shop. I've coloured Connor with Copics and Prisma Pencils, then edged with Fluid Chalk ink Pads. The sketch I followed for this card is PaperTake Weekly, a great sketch Dawn. The papers are all from the Bearly Mine Extreme Vol 1 & Vol 2. The insert has been created using the new Designer Inserts Extreme. All available from Bearly Mine Designs. I've distressed all the papers and again gone around with a green ink pad. The sentiment is computer generated and this will be going to my FIL for Fathers Day. Not like me to get stuff done in advance but I am so busy with my crafting nowadays, thought I's strike while the kettles hot so to speak. My card also meets a few other challenges this week and Whimsy Stamps are sponsoring one, so if you'd like to be in with a chance, get yourselves over to Spoonful Of Sugar who are celebrating their 1st Birthday and their theme is "Celebration". The final Challenge is Simon Says Stamps and this weeks challenge is "A Boys Card". This has been sponsored by Bearly Mine Designs and you could win the Designer Extreme Vol 1 that I have used on this card. So please take a look at the challenges as there as some great prizes up for grabs. 

The inserts are all stunning and there is a great variety. You can add text to them like I have done here!

I've added an EBay link to the top of my sidebar. I have been going through my stash and would like to rehome some of it. Alot more to be added, so keep checking.  Am also putting some of my cards there as well, you never know lol.
Thanks for looking, few chores to be done then another DT card, am I obsessed???????
