"Fore" You

***Note to self...check to make sure preposted post really did post as scheduled!



I have had this image from Bugaboo ready to be made into a card for some time now.  This was the perfect image for a "guy" card.  The bugaboo images are so cute and so easy to color.  I kept it on the simple side...errr...meaning, no ribbons or frilly anything.  The DP is from the My Mind's Eye Lil' Robots collection, Laser Lines.  The colors of the stripes matched perfectly to my colored image.  I don't know about you but I never pick my DP until after I have colored my image.  Sometimes that can be quite the challenge!  I added a piece of green that was embossed with the Argyle embossing folder.  I used the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder and a circle punch to make some golf balls.  I generated the sentiment on the computer and make it into a little flag.  I have been on a roll lately with "guy" cards.  Maybe I better make a few more while the mojo is flowing.

I even finished off the inside...



Confession to make...this card didn't quite make it on time, so it is getting to it's destination a little late.
