Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Challenge #1

Today is the official start day of the new
"Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge Blog"
Chris & Sandra from "Sketching Stamper" have some awesome
digital Stamps. I have bought a few, and have even
won some a couple of weeks ago.

Fun - Fun - Fun
That's all I can say.
However, I did not use one of their images for this challenge
because I am in need of a new ink cartridge. LOL
But I did have a digital image already printed out
because I knew I was going to need to make
a birthday card for my nephew, and since it's NOT a requirement
to use their images for this awesome new challenge blog site,
I was lucky I had already had this little cutie printed.

I used "The Greeting Farm's Batter Ian"
Tried to turn him into a little NY Mets player, since that is my
nephews favorite team. The Mets Logo on Ians hat was
drawn by my son, I would have actually printed the REAL logo but
once again... OUT OF INK.
What a pain in the neck.

But with my son drawing the logo, I guess it's just that much
more personal, right?
I cut a circle and made it look like a baseball, and on the
inside I have different size circles also turned into baseballs,
and LOTS of space to write.
I'm sure Rusty is going to love this card.
Okay, here is my very first Greeting Farm "Batter Ian" card,
as well as my very first entry into the
Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge Blog.

and the baseball crazy inside
The baseball has brown chalk on it so it looks a little dirty. LOL
