Hello Everyone...

Wednesday afternoon and had an easy morning with all "My Ladies" being afternoon was spent colouring a tricky image but finally got it finished..and now ready to head back to work for the tea rounds.

But first.. I thought it would be a good idea to schedule this card as I'm am inclined to nod off on the couch just after

I have my inspiration DT post for Stampfairy  and using this cute image and made a Birthday card for my Dad for next month...

Lenny Fathers Day 5 

My Dad loved playing golf but getting on a bit and just watches golf games on the telly...all day!!.

Lenny is coloured with Faber Castell pencils and fussy cut out to stand on the 'green'..

His golf ball is a small pom pom and used my Fiskars grass punch..

No designers papers used on this card and you will never guess what the yellow stuff is???

It is actually "Marine Foam backed suede" say that fast and you will doing real good..

I picked this up from a client I go to who is an upholster..and found the yellow strip first on the floor and asked if I could have it...then he gave me a bigger strip of suede and the black dots are actually holes...neat eh!!

The side view...the 'DAD' stickers and  the golf tag are from my stash.
