Whimsy and Bearly MIne DT Card + Challenges


I'm having a lazy day, the sun is shining and I put the chores on hold so thought I'd sit and play with my stash for an hour. This card uses "Baseball Connor" from the Kids Collection over at Whimsy Stamps. They have a terrific range of stamps, you really need to take a look at the newly released Animal Collection to. Both the papers on this card are from the Designer Extreme Vol 1 at Bearly Mine Designs. Vol 2 and an Insert Disc is also available and Vol 3 is due to be launched very soon.
Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring this weeks Truly Scrumptious Challenge which has a great sketch to follow and the addition of beads. I have added lots of brown beads to the centres of all the buttons but I'm afraid the camera didn't pick them up very well. "Connor" has been coloured with SU Watercolour Crayons and I finished the card by adding Scrabble Tiles. Please do take a look at the Whimsy Stamp Shop and Bearly Mine Designs, both scrummy products for your stash and I wouldn't be without either.
My card also fits into the Stamptacular Challenge which is Childs Play and Fun With Shapes which is Buttons.
Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for looking.
