Gee Penny Black does come up with some weird names for stamps sometimes - don't you think ??, i was shocked when i found out the name of this one, as my lovely friend Janice had sent me this image.

For this card i have used the fabby papers i was fortunate enough to win in the lovely Jacque's blog candy and i'm also sending this card to a sick child in hospital as part of Post Pals, as you never know what's round the corner and if by a small chance i can cheer somebody up, then i will.
This card also gave me a good excuse to play with my new Hero Arts stamp - 'Hello Flags' and also the fabby Bakers Twine.

Cute image (slugger is a baseball term, hence the name of the stamp) and you colored it up so beautifully. Love that paper stack, one of my favorites.
