Especially For My Unkul Keef

You remember when you were little and your Mum & Dad's friend's were all called aunties and Uncles?? Well my Mum and Dad met a lovely couple a few year's ago and being the grown up that I am (cough,cough) I chose to call Keith Unkul Keef (my spelling has come along alot in the past 3 years)
Well Unkul Keef has had to be in hospital having some treatment and when we went round for our tea last week Unkul Keef picked up the nickname of Dobby, from Harry Potter.
As soon as I saw the wonderful new Elf graphic that Gayle has drawn to go in the Fairy Doodler's part of the Teddy Bo shop I knew I had to make a card for Unkul Keef.
Gayle has some amazing new images to share with you and if you are like certain friend of mine you will want them all.

Here is the front of my card :

A close-up of the cute guy :

And here is what I put inside the card - 

 In photoshop I merged the elf with TEDDYBEA _161 and then just kept her sign. I have coloured my elf with copic's and added liquid pearl's as snow.  I also went over Wobby's painting with glossy accent's to make it shine like gloss paint.  I have used holographic card and stripy blue paper from my scraps drawer.  The button was made by triple embossing a glued stack of die cut circles and then punching the hole's with my cropaldile.
Don't trap your finger in a cropadile coz it bloody hurts.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :

It's gorgeous Hazel, I'm sure he will love it! Woo xx


Hi Hazel, what a brilliant card! Gorgeous image, and so clever to merge different digis - so far I've only managed printing, re-sizing and putting them next to each other! Wonderful colouring. Thank you for the kind comment on my blog, it is appreciated. Sarah

PS - I know all about trapping fingers in Cropadiles. I caught my daughters thumb in mine and cut off half her nail - ended up in a trip to hospital!! Poor little thing was so brave tho. Cropadile is now up out of harms way.


Fabby card and love your remember I to had a HUGE amount of Aunties and Uncles teheheee!! I really Hope your Unkul Keef is getting better and I am sure your card will bring a smile too!
