Happy Saturday with Whipper Snapper

Hi everyone!

I was very lucky to be chosen as a DT Member for the store ' The Town Scrapper' in Ontario.
Today I am using 'Whipper Snapper' as my first stamp image. This is one of my favourites because this little guy is called ' Baseball Brandon' and my Grandson's name is Brandon also and he is playing T Ball this year for the first time.....

Here is a picture of the entire card :
isn't he the cutest???

Today I have used White Card Stock 11" x 5 1/2" and used my Scor-Pal to score the fold at 5 1/2". The Design Paper is Imaginisce and is called: A shore Thing - Sweet Summer Breeze. I cut the DP at 5.4" square and attached it to matching Blue plain DP which is cut at 5.6" square. I cut a very small oval and attached it to my Large Square Scallop Nestibility, in the same DP Blue. The Sentiment is from 'Hannah Stamps'.

**'The Town Scrapper carries : Imaginisce, Nestibilities, the Scor-Pal, and both Whipper Snapper and Hannah Stamps. You can get in touch with Phebe by clicking on her store name on the right hand side of my blog and her address is printed right underneath!

(I coloured my stamped image with Copic Sketch Markers. The colours used were: E00 - E11 - R32 for face, arms and legs; R24 - R29 for the hat and bandaide; B-21 - B24 for the numbers and neck line of his shirt; B93 - B97 for the main shirt; E34 - E37 for the baseball glove; Y11 - Y21 - E 33 for his hair; G03 - G09 for his shorts and socks; Co - C3 - W3 for the baseball and sneakers.)

I took a further two pictures for you to see a close up of 'Brandon'. As you can see the sun was disappearing as I was taking my pictures, so one is much more bright than the other. I think you can see them both well though.


I hope you like this card. Please say hi to Phebe when you see her from me!

Thanks so much for looking! Don't forget how much I enjoy your comments :o)

Love Candy
