Alf the milkman!

Some of you might remember that I was looking for a milkman image to use on a retirement card - for my grandma's milkman :o)  Well the FABBY Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique has kindly adapted one of the Alf images for me to use - and doesn't he look great as a milkman?!



I've coloured him with a combination of promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are Making Memories, spotty buttons from my stash and the sentiment was computer generated.  And that's it, quite a simple one :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Keeping it short tonight because hubby's waiting for me to finish typing so we can watch something... will be round to visit you all later!
