Baseball Connor ~ Cool Kid!

I am cutting it fine with this one as I used the Friday Sketcher's Sketch by Carole from last week for my layout but it may be just a bit too late! I have had a busy old week so didn't get to post it earlier!
It also fits into the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge which asks for Gems!
I am also entering it for the last (for now) Arty Girlz challenge which is 'stamping'
Here is Baseball Connor from Whimsy Stamps, isn't he adorable? I so enjoyed colouring him and my son just loves him! I can see him being used on lots of projects!
Fantastic news from Whimsy! Denise now has Basic Grey paper pads, buttons and brads, they are gorgeous and my favourite papers so I will definitely be rushing over there to snap some up!
You can also get a first glimpse of the new animals due for release early in April, they are so cute! Have a look here!
This one had to go in the mail so no money!!! Instead I found the flattest chocolate bars I could find, I wish I could see my nephew's face when he opens this, hopefully the postman will get it to him in the morning!
I used my new Crackle effect stamp by Crafty Individuals! I also stamped the stars and the boy motif which were both Studio G stamps! The sentiment is a rub-on. Supplies: Stamps ~ Whimsy Stamps 'Baseball Connor', Crafty Individuals 'crackle', Studio G 'boy'
DP ~ BAsic Grey 'archaic'
Embellishments ~ Charms from Ebay, recycled twine and Papermania adhesive gems

I have a busy weekend coming up but hopefully enjoyable, hope you all enjoy your weekend too, thank you for your visit and your kind words!
