Whimsy ~ Baseball Connor havin' fun

This card fits into lots of challenges for this week! first of all the Copic Colour Challenge which is being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week, you could win a $15 gift certificate to spend in the Whimsy Online Store!!!
I used the ever so cute Whimsy Stamps Baseball Connor on this card, I thought this Cosmo Cricket paper was perfect for him, I love it, so boyish and so vintage!
My new mini voltage transformer arrived yesterday and no sooner was it through the door than it was attached to my UK sewing machine and off I went! It has been a bit of a drag having to fetch the large transformer that the kids have been using on the X Box but I missed not stitching on my cards so it was either a small transformer that the kids couldn't use or a new mini sewing machine. Think I made the right choice as I love my sewing machine.
I started off using the sketches from Papertake Weekly and Truly Scrumptious, had them both copied on one sheet and must have gone between them, weren't they so similar. Anyway, now it doesn't seem to resemble either one, more a mix of them both!
The other challenges are
Simon Says...... Shabby Chic
Creative Inspirations.....Distressing

Thanks to all of you for dropping by, hope you have a fabulous weekend! I am hoping for a very quiet one!!!!
