Golfing Dad (70)


Good morning everyone,

Brrrr, it's been really chilly here over the last few days and the weather forecast in the coming days doesn't look any better either. I think I need to finally give in and dig out my winter coat and stop wearing my Macintosh...its just not warm enough now.

I was asked to make a card for a work colleagues Dad, who recently turned 70...this fab image from Bugaboo immediately sprang to mind as he's so perfect for the occasion. I've kept the design fairly clean and simple and used my fav 'Summer Breeze' papers from Nitwit!

Thanks for stopping by today...I'm always so appreciative of any comments that are left for me, especailly during this busy time leading up to Christmas!

Digital Image: Bugaboo (Gus Golf)
Digital Design Papers: Nitwit Collections (Summer Breeze)
Colouring Medium: Promarkers & Smooth White Card
Card Stock: SU! (Brocade Blue)
Tools: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Swiss Dots) and Scalloped Circular Punch
Sentiment: Happy Birthday Dad and '70' created on the computer using 'Informal Roman' font
