It's obvious I'm on holiday, when I manage to do two posts in one day! This one is the first of six golf themed birthday cards I have been asked to make. For the layout I used next weeks Sweetstop Sketch - I really like this one, so might use it for one of the other cards as well. The paper I've had for years - it is double-sided and has a graduation theme on the other side and is called College 101 & Dot Flourish, by The Paper Company. I recently got a new storage system for my 12 x 12 sheets, so I can see what I've got much easier, and so I'm much more likely to use it! The golf ball is a die cut circle embossed with the dotty embossing folder and shaped slightly and the golf club is a Quickutz die. The stamp is by Creative Stamping and the image has been lightly coloured and shaded using Promarkers.
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
