'Golf Anyone?'

If you saw my last post, you will already know it's my step dad's 70th birthday at the end of the month. The other card was for him from the girlies & today's card is off me & Nige.

It's also for the Slinky Tarts Inspirational blog post. I just loved colouring this beauty in. The only thing was I really struggled with what colours to colour her hat & shorts. But as pink & green is one of my favourite colour combos & I don't use it very often I thought it would look good! I will admit I do love how its turned out!!
