Golfing for Fun

With eight grandsons, three sons, two brothers and several male friends I seem to make a lot of cards for the men in my life. I am lucky that most of them are involved in sports, are musical, or have an occupation I can base my cards on!  This card is for my grandson who plays hockey all winter, but loves to golf when he is home in he summer.  He is going back to start practices and training for hockey this week, but hopefully will have time for a few more games of golf.

Not the best photo, should have checked it before I gave it to him.   All the images are from TLC.  The designer paper is from Theresa Collins - Posh.  The green marker at the top is from Tyandaga Golf course where he often golfs as it is right here in the city of Burlington. (Also where I golf every Monday morning in a Ladies 9 hole league.  He golfs 18 holes.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Happy Anniversary

I got to go golfing a couple of times this week, Monday and Wednesday.   9 holes Mon. and 18 on Wed.  certainly had a lot of fun with my friends with only a few sprinkles of rain.

The only stamp on this card is the sentiment which was stamped and then embossed in gold.  The background is done with a Crafters Too embossing folder which I brushed with a Brilliance Cosmic Copper ink pad. (I thought I was using gold), but I liked the kind of pinky colour it left on the card, so I left it. The gold flourish, button and gold bow are from my stash. The white flower is from Petaloo.  I mounted this onto gold paper and then onto the white card.  Lots of sparkles from the flourish and the gold paper!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Avenue Create                  Anything Goes

Mr. Fix IT

For my brothers birthday I chose a Dr Digis image - I know my brother has made quite a few improvements around his home himself.  A regular Mr. Fix It he is! 

Added some geometric card stock behind him.  Thought he needed a few more tools to work with, so added them to the card as well. Green leather strips from stash. The sentiment is a stamp from Impression Obsesssion.
