Fore You!!!

Image- The Big Guy Golfing from Mo's digital pencil.
Papers- FBQ bear necessities from Nitwit collections.

Morning peeps!!
I hope you are all having a wonderful fathers day, we are. We have been down to the golfing range for Daddy and Mo to send a few balls flying and now we are all vegging out at home!

This card is the one I made for my step dad for fathers day. He has gone off golfing for the day so we took it at 7am this morning before we left.

I was super inspired by Liza over on the cupcake craft challenge blog DT for this card. I am entering their boy oh boy oh boy challenge with it so thank you oodles Liza xxxx

For mine I used The Big Guy Golfing from Mo Manning's shop. He is fabulous!!!! I really enjoyed coloring him up with my promarkers.I cut him out with my nesties. Then I made my for you dad sentiment in word and printed it out, I punched it out with my circle punch and the de-bossed it with my tiny bubbles embossing folder in my cuttlebug.
I popped it out by rolling one of Little Mo's huge marbles around on the back of it!!! I love how it turned out!!! (and yes, I drew the tee and it is pants!!!) and it is popped up on some foam

I made the background using my FBQ Bear necessities papers from Nitwits collections. I lurve these digi papers and elements. The little ropey bit was from the Aye Aye captain nitwits. I put it all together in paint shop so that it printed out as one layer and I made the inside to match.

I added some doodles around the edges to finish it off and a bit of chalking to soften the edges before I glued it down onto my card.

Challenges I am entering with my big guy!!!:

Right, I am off for a cuppa now and a little nibble of something to eat. Thank you for popping in on me!!
