Fathers Day - Teddy Golf

Afternoon! Well that was a long weekend, with typical british weather... Rain.  Our party was cancelled yesterday due to the weather and I had spent my afternoon cooking and decorating cupcakes!! Not a happy bunny! Oh well can't change it! Well lots of changes happened yesterday, my little Nancy decided that she no longer wanted to be in baby jail at night, so we have taken the side of her cot off.. it was a nightmare getting her into bed last night , followed by a 6am wake up with a smack on the face and mumbled through her dummy 'wakey up time now mummy daddy!' Oh well - maybe she will sleep better tonight!

Anyway I have been crafty and quite impressed with myself for this one, A friend asked me to make a Fathers Day card for her kids - she left it pretty open to anything but she did tell me that he like golf at the moment - so what better image that 'Seven... I mean FOUR' from Teddy Bo. 

This was my first ever attempt at colouring a Teddy Bo image, I ave often seen them about and looked the other way as I don't feel I colour fur very well, but on this occasion I was quite impressed with myself! 

the image was coloured using copics, I haven't got what colours I used, it has taken me a few days to colour and so I have had to be clueing up in-between it all. The papers were all from my stash and I mounted it on Kraft too, just to fill in on the layers! 

I used a new die I have, purchased it from a friend on Facebook, It worked really well on the 8x8 card blank.  The letters were from my Quickutz alphabet, again not quiet sure what one - I forgot I had that till the other day when I tripped over it, Im not quite sure how it made itself to the middle of the room - it was like it was asking to be used!

From a small piece of paper I die up the smallest circle from my spellbinders and embossed it using a cuttlebug embossing folder, just so it looked like a golf ball! Well I hope you like my card - all in all I'm quite impressed! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
