Old Fashion Golf

I am going to enter this card into the CDAC Midnight Madness challenge MMSC105, I have chosen the KISS version of the sketch we were provided with.  I am quite pleased with my card.  The image from the Stamp Barn  is embossed, with Stampendous black embossing powder.  The paper has a leather feel to it and the back is a metalic copper color.  It is from my stash so don't know the mfg.  The ribbon top and bottom is one of my favorites for male cards. it is from So-Facile Canada Inc.  

The above is a card for my eldest sons birthday, I do love to tease him about his age.  He is retired now, but works under contract.  He does have more time for golf, as he does not always put in a five day week.  He has a very sports minded family, everyone has their own favorite sport including his wife and three boys.  All favor a different sport.  His is triathalons, but is training now for an Iron Man race. 

To-day is card day, so must be on my way.  To-day we play out in the country, so on my way home I pass several farms that sell plants.  If it isn't raining, I hope to stop and get some new plants for my garden.

Cute Gardner

Such a sweet digi from Mami Doodles.  I tried to capture her planting the flowers with green grass, a fence, and sky beyond.  The sky has quite dark ridges showing in the photo, but looked totally blue when I added it.  The image is colored with copics.  The corrugated and embossed papers were from a Scrap Pack from DMD.  The other papers from my stash.  The edging was done with Provo Craft scissors.  I am going to enter this in the CDAC Midnight Madness Challenge MMSC104.  I have chosen the plain Sketch.

It is raining here now, but has been a great holiday weekend, with sun and much warmer.  Hope the rain stops so that people can set off there fireworks.   Managed to get some work done in my garden. Now, I guess I should get some work inside done; time to bring out the summer clothes and put away the winter ones.

Blue Daisy

This beautiful daisy image is from Digi Drawn, Maureen Kuppe, CDAC.  I am entering this card into the sketch challenge cdacsc23.  The card is to be simple and to have a ribbon, and a round tag or button.
I colored the image with copics, used papers from my stash and some paper rick-rack instead of a ribbon.

Last night I went to a birthday party for three of my golfing friends.  We had a great time eating snacks and playing Family Feud  - there were 7 of us on each team.  The game is shown on the tv and you guess at the right answers -  our team didn't guess right often enough - and we lost!  I was suppose to go golfing to-night, but it has been raining here all week, and it doesn't look too promising at the moment.

For the Twins

These cards are digital images from Mami Doodles.  They are so cute, so like my twin great nephews.  Colored with copics.  The background stamp is embossed, the stamp is from Chapel Road.  The die-cut glitter stickers are from Dollarama.  DP & other embellishments from my stash.

My niece and her husband live in California, so do not see them too often.  I am always surprised when I see their children, how much they have changed and grown.  The last time they were here one of the twin boys sang several songs for us, told us he would let us know when to clap.  He was very entertaining - good voice and lots of descriptive hand gestures.

Rained all day here and supposed to rain all week.  Guess there will be no golf tomorrow, so hubby has suggested we go to Fallsview Casino tomorrow - good place to go on a rainy day.

This little bird card is for my niece and also for the CDAC Midnight Madness 102 Challenge.  The digital image colored with copics is from Heart Song Designs.  The dark cs is from Double Mates and the dp is from K & Company.  The greeting is a stamp from Chapel Road Artstamps.

Went to my daughters a week ago to help her pack for a move.  Came home for two days and then we were called back, baby decided he was ready to be born.  They had the last load on the truck when she went to the hospital.  When we arrived there, The main floor was set up, beds made, dishes in the cupboards and the living room was decorated, none of this had been done before she left.  The girls from her ball team had come over and looked after that while the guys were finishing the unloading of the truck.  We stayed and looked after grandchildren while mother was in hospital.  She was there for three days and then we helped around the house with meals, picking up kids from school, shopping, and washing etc. Baby Boy Colton Alister Scott Weese 6lb.1oz. We came home Saturday night.
Went golfing this morning for the first time this season.  The weather was beautiful, but, my score was ugly.
