Good morning to my crafting friends. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.
Many of you in the Northern Hemisphere are just beginning your summer
holidays, so please keep safe, and have a wonderful holiday.

Last Wednesday, one of my fellow guides at the Fort celebrated his birthday,
 and as he is 'golf-mad', a golf-themed card seemed the obvious choice.

I absolutely love QKR Stampede's bears, and this rather rotund 
guy is no exception.

This was the best I could do for a 'golf ball' - I cut a circle with a Spellbinder
die, then embossed it, to create dimples. When I planned the card in my head,
I had intended to just use a large 'FORE' as a sentiment, then I remembered
it was our friend's 64th birthday.........!

Inside the card co-ordinates with the front.

Sentiment - computer generated (Balsam and Forte fonts)
Border peel-off sticker from my junk stash

That's all for now, so I must go and morph into a domestic goddess. Thank you for visiting, and until next time "happy crafting".
