Still on the Golf

I'm back with another golfing card today, made from one of the stamps that I recently received from Stamp Addicts.

I am so gutted, as I have made loads of cards in readiness for a Create and Craft show next week, and I was due to drop them off at the shop today, but the deluge of snow meant that the shop couldn't open, and I would have struggled to get over there anyway. Oh well - them's the breaks as they say.

Perhaps my cards will be on one of their shows another day.

In the meantime, a little bit about this card. The recent breakdown of my printer caused me to have to use up some of my scraps and this is where I found these backing papers which, I thought, were just perfect for the theme. My golfer is coloured with Spectrum Noirs and I have used candy dots for the wavy line. I tried to make them look a bit like golf balls by adding dots with my super fine promarker nib.

So a very clean and simple card.....but it would be a good one for my dad I think!!

Here are a few challenges that I am going to enter:

Inky Chicks - Anything Goes
Card Makin Mamas - Clean and Simple
Make it Monday

So that's the end of my little post for today.

I hope to be back tomorrow with something a little girly.

Thanks for stopping by.
