Do you have a favourite sport?
I sure do...but not the way you would think!
My favourite sports are golfing, fishing and boating. Maybe you are thinking that I am a sporty kind of girl...well, you would be WRONG!!!
I love those sports because my husband likes to go fishing, boating and go off to play golf with his buddies. He is still best friends with his original buddies from elementary school and luckily they share a love of the same sports.
While hubby is off getting some exercise with his pals, I can get in some paper crafting...so...yes...
I LOVE those sports!!!
These past few months have been a bit of a dry spell for paper crafts as he was not strong enough to golf, etc. He is finally up to a bit of golfing out of a cart, on a good day. Prior to the heart attack and the diabetes, he always prided himself on walking the course and even carried his golf bag...no dragging or pushing a wheelie cart for him. Now, it's playing out of a cart with a wee snack bag tucked into his golf bag, in case his blood sugars drop!
Today, while he was off with his buddies, I managed to get a birthday card finished. It has a golf theme and will probably go to one of his pals on their birthday.
Wasn't quite sure about the golden circle behind the birthday sentiment. I was going to score sunshine rays coming out to the left on the green cardstock. I thought it would look reminiscent of sunshine on the golf course.but that idea was kyboshed by the fact that the green cardstock is heavily textured and the rays looked strange. Then I remembered I had some wavy, circular rays of sunshine in my stash drawer...they have been filed away for over 10 years...Extras from a tropical, Hawaii scrapbook album that I finished up long ago! Good thing I am not a paper purger as I was able to locate them right away. A little judicious trimming with the scissors and it slid right behind my sentiment circle. Finally, I had my sunshine.
Here's a little peek at the inside.
With the exception of the argyle paper, all the other bits used today, are from my stash and well over a year old. (Some more than others...teehee). The argyle came from a 6x6 paper pad of My Minds Eye, Lime Twist, that I picked up at the infamous Clipper Street Scrapbook Store garage sale last weekend. I kind of think it is still using stash...it just used to be someone else's stash!!! Best of all...It was only 2 dollars for the whole pad. Yay... how I love a bargain!
