Mo's digital pencil too Anything but a card challenge.

  Hello again peeps!!! I am a 2 posts in one day gal today!!!!

When I saw the  Anything but a card challenge over on Mo's digital challenge blog I had to have a go at entering with a little box bag I have been working on today!!!
Little Mo and Boo came home from the play area kinda comatose so I have been having a little make whilst they veg out!!! (Lucky me, think I will go to the play area daily from now on!!!!) 
I found a completely awesome tutorial for this box over on qbeesquest's blog last week.

I had an order for a Dad birthday card that was a bit special and this is what I have come up with. ( said special dad likes golfing!!) Out came my mo's digital pencil Big Guy Golfing, a total must when you know lots of golfy people!!!!

Here's a view from the side.... yup, I know you are thinking where the heck is the Big Guy????!

I even made a cute mini golf ball for the opening part which is hiding a bit of velcro.
 ....and this is how it opens up to reveal my little surprise inside!!! I added a golf ball!!!!

Its a golf ball inside!!! hence needing the velcro fastening for a good strong close when the bag is all tucked up.

There is a fantastic verse about how Dad's were created. It is my all time fav and my dad's are probably fed up of getting it!!! but its so lovely. Here's a linky to the verse (especially for Ali who needed it xxxxxxx)
I made the golf ball holdery bit out of a loo roll and covered it in matching dp to the rest of my box.
I included a tag to write on too for any personal greeting.

I really really enjoyed making this one so Thank you to mo's DT for giving me the push with all their fabulous creations over on the challenge blog, go check them out yourself as they are fab!!

Thank you for popping in on me!! hugs Lou xxxx
