My First Digistamp Boutique Purchase! meet Alf!

Yes I've finally gone and done it, and have made my first purchase at Digistamp Boutique, although now I've started I fear I might not be able to stop. I've seen this image used a few times whilst browsing the DoCrafts gallery. His name is Alf and I think he has a mischeivous look about him! I have to say I had to open a can of lager to make this card! I didn't consume any though, but I really wanted to use a ringpull! I have since asked people to save them for me! This is also the first time out for this cute little bear from Elzybells. I bought up quite a few stamps in the closing down sale. I coloured the bear in but then I really struggled with what to do for the background. I didnt want to leave it white, so I got out my chalks, which dont come out very often and have attempted a background. I'm not very good at colouring and it really frustrates me. I dont really have the patients for it. I've got quite a lot of fathers day cards I need to get working on. Most of them will be Golf themed! which is lucky as I have a few images and some Quickutz dies. I have also been asked to make a snooker themed card, so I'll have to get my thinking cap on for that one as I dont have any snooker stamps/images. Does anybody know if there is a snooker digistamp? Whilst on the theme of Father's Day, DotComGiftShop have sent me a full english plate from their Father's Day Gift range.Its fab! I think I'll let my boys give it to their Daddy! I think I might theme his card around this too! as he's not really into sports other that Formula 1 and motor racing, and every card I make for him seems to be centred around that. He does however, enjoy a good breakfast!

Thanks for looking!
