I'm still slowly ploughing through the cards that I need to make, and seeing the image i have used for this card, being used on cards on some of the blogs I follow, I finally succumbed and bought it - there are lots of golfers that I need to make throughout the year, so this digi will be well used.

In making this card I have used what I think is 'golfing' looking backing paper from a hugh paper stack I have that I bought when I started crafting about 4 years ago.  As with most stacks you buy, there are always designs that you don't like and don't know how to use, and I am happy that I have finally been able use this one. 

Not sure of the colour combo of brown and blue, but I am sure it will be well received by the recipient.  The bugaboo image has been coloured with Promarkers, and it was my first time trying to do shading.  The grass could have come out better, but heyho, thats what happens when you decide to leave the bottom of the image white, and then change you mind and want to do more green, and it doesn't blend with the green that has already been coloured.

The layout isn't from anywhere in particular, but I wanted to use the MS zigzag punch and buttons on the card so that is what I came up with.  I love the quote and hope my Uncle does too.
