Digi Doodle Shop Challenge #94

Told you I would be back.
This week over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges, it's team Karen's turn to inspire you and our theme is One For The Boys. Not one we all relish but we do all occasionally need a card for him!!

I chose to use this great image called "The Adamant Golfer - Focus" for my card, which is one of the newer stamps for men over in the Digi Doodle Shop.  I just loved this pose and was even more amazed when I read that it was inspired by an actual golfer nicknamed "Spider-Man" ........

This is Camilo Villegas in his famous "Spider Man" pose - looks somewhat painful to me - lol!!  Anyway, painful poses aside, I wanted an amusing golfing pun for the inside of the card so searched the web and found this one which fitted the image perfectly :0)  

Don't know about you, but I wouldn't be able to produce anything graceful after getting myself into that position, but then I'm no golfer - lol!!

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - stash that I have had for years - think it's possibly Basic Grey 
Letters, cardstock  and brads - stash

So, that's my "One for the Boys" card. The rest of the Design Team have produced some gorgeous cards for your inspiration and we are all looking forward to seeing your entries.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Great card Denise, love the sentiment too.

Linda said...

LOL When I putt, I bend at the waist and give everyone a hilarious view of my backside. Sure hope no one ever took a pic of my pose. LOL But then no one ever called my shots graceful either.

Denise this is a great card honey. I love your coloring and layout. Hugs

Jules said...

Tee hee Denise!!! If I managed to get myself into that position in the first place it would be a miracle .. .. and then it would probably take me another five minutes to get up in what would no-doubt be a not very graceful manner LOL!!!

Love your card. It is great inside and out! Just perfect for those awkward males.

Love Jules xx

Faye said...

Spider Man's technique looks similar to mine. The only difference being I'd be on the ground, sleeping!! ;) This is such a fun card and I love the soft nod to golf colours too. xx
