Birthday Golf Chick

Our whole family golfed for a long time but things change, I had kids and then got a divorce so I didn't have time for it, my parents stopped for health reasons, and I'm not really sure why my sisters quit but they don't anymore either as far as I know. We may occasionally still gold a round but it's rare for any of us.

My Mom has all kinds of friends that golf. When I saw this image, it made me smile. I knew her friends would get a kick out of it so I purchased this image from Karen Middleton over at Cuddlybuddly. I used a yellow doily and attached it to a pre-made card which I folded for the easel. The sentiment is from Create with TLC. I used some scrunched and dyed seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and some TH Broken China distress ink. Here's the end result...






















Love ya,
~Deb~

  4. Deb~I like the creativity you used to come up with the bg. I also love the huge club that chick is holding. I had the worst golf instructor & now he is an ex. LOL I would have liked to have had someone with more patience. I came over from Cuddlebug Cuties. Hugs~Patti

  6. Hi Deb
    I saw your card on Cuddlebug Cuties blog hop. This is a cutie. I love this little duck. I tried to golf once,once, with my husband. I managed to hit the ball and it somehow hit me in the knee. I could hardly walk for a week. That was the end of my golfing career, LOL. Great job on the card.
    Best

  13. This card is so precious. Such a really cool layout and of course that sentiment goes just perfectly with the image. Paulette always has the best sentiments doesn't she?
