Hole in One Hal....... =)

So as many of you know, I have an issue with men's cards, always have and probably always will. Unfortunately, I do not find them interesting to make because you can not embellish them like you can a female's card. I cringe when I have to make a boy's card because I never know what I am going to do UNTIL I saw this video on YouTube by Kimberly Brown, using an image from Dr. Digi. She is amazing with her Letraset Promarkers. If you ever get a chance, check her out here....

So when I saw the image she was colouring I immediately decided to check out Dr. Digi to see what they have. Well, oh my goodness, they have amazing digital stamps. The one I chose is Hole in One Hal and you can find him here......

Here is the finished card.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E57
Shorts & Shoes: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
Shirt: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
Socks: BG72, BG78
Golf Bag: R24, R29, R46, R89
Clubs: N1, N3, N5, N7

I hope you enjoyed this card that I made. Here is hoping my golfer cousin enjoys it. For a complete list of things used, see the links below.... stay crafty =)
