The Character Cafe Blog Hop

Hi and Welcome to The Character Café Blog Hop to celebrate the release of a new set of digi stamps and the launch of a brand new Design Team. A design team I'm so happy to be a part of! The Blog Hop starts at the Character Cafe's Design Team page, and there you will find more information and the full Blog Hop list.

Along the road on this Blog Hop you'll meet the rest of the FAB team and their take on the NEW stamps. You will ALSO find a freebie, AND, if you do the full Blog Hop and collect the code, the chance to win a prize AND a 50% discount on a purchase from the Character Café Web Shop. Be sure to leave a comment to be entitled to the prize and discount! The prize will be drawn on Tuseday 23:d, and the discount will be good through Tuseday too.

More info will follow in this post, but I'm in love with SYD THE GOLFER which is the image I've been asked to debute for this hop, and I want to share the projects I've done with him.

Isn't he CUTE!!! I decided to keep the card simple to let Syd get all the attention. I've colored him with a combination of Copic Markers and Distress Ink, and I cut the image out with the help of my beloved crafts knife and put him on 3D adhersive to get some 3D effect.

I think it got a great feel of an open golf car, and the shadows gives depth. I like how it turned out.

I have quite a few friends addicted to golf. Before I got hooked with this paper crafting hobby, I had serious troubles understanding their obsession. That is no more... Hehee....

I do like to play golf sometimes myself. I do not however do it on a regular basis, and I don't have many friends intrested in it. But once in a while (like every other year...), I do meet up with an old friend from University and I thought I'd send her a request for a golf date later this summer.

I hope I get a positive answer!

My code is 4 and is the first number of the 8 character code. To get the second part you need to go visit BILLIE!

Have fun hopping!!!

Tesa, He's sooo cute!! You did
a great job colouring him. My kids
and daycare kids did Syd Golfer for
father's day cards. My son coloured
him the exact same colours Red & Orange. I like the 3D effect.
Glad to have you on our Design Team!!

sussies said...

Wow, vad du är duktig vännen!!! Vilket proffsigt kort med en sån söt golfare! Föll pladask för honom jag också! Du har verkligen lyckats superpt med färgläggningen och att få det i 3D!!!
Det andra kortet blev också superbra med mina favvisfärger! Hoppas du får napp på inbjudan! :-) Jag provade golf för ett par år sen, det var kul men kroppen sa ifrån så det bidde inget mer golfande för min del, tyvärr, då jag tyckte det var rätt så kul.:-(

Hoppas du fick en bättre midsommar i år än i fjol och att ni slapp regnet! Här var det riktigt bra väder men lite kyligt.
1000 kramar från Susanne
