Golfin Gramps

Hello!!! Hope you had a good week!
It ended up being pretty busy around here---ahhh Summer! I did manage to get some cards made but then never had the time to photograph them.
We found out yesterday that my son has an abscessed tooth and needs it pulled. This morning he fell on a plastic chair that was turned upside down. The leg of it just nailed him....and for anyone who knows me....I do NOT do well with the sight of blood. I managed to get it cleaned and covered though and don't think he needs stitches (whew!) Never a dull moment with that one :)

Instead of heading to the pool---we are gonna go to the new Toy Story movie today so he doesn't have to think about getting his neck wet. (His idea!)
Last night I pulled out this Our Craft Lounge set - Golfin Gramps -that I ADORE! The golfer guy reminds me of my dad (even though my dad isn't as stout--he definitely resembles him in the hair area! giggle!)
I love all the fun golf items in this set and because there are TONS of golfers in my family....it is a MUST HAVE. Here is what I created for my dad's birthday (which isn't till August so I am doing well!!) I paired the adorable images and sentiment in this set with some Studio Calico paper and fabric strips! I used my beloved MFT dies--cloud trio and fresh cut grass to create the background for the scene. To add a bit more texture, I sewed a few lines on the top of the card.

Materials used: Stamps-Golfin Gramps (Our Craft Lounge); cardstock- white (Gina K Designs), tan (Bazzill Basics); Designe paper- Anthology collection (Studio Calico); fabric strips-Anthology collection (Studio Calico); ribbon-Chartruese (PTI); stapler; button; Copic Markers; Memento tuxedo black ink; Dienamics dies-cloud trio, fresh cut grass (My Favorite Things); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); sewing machine.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Cute card! I like the sentiment in the clouds too!
Sounds like both you and your son had trauma, hehe! I'm sure the movie made everyone feel better!

I love the "officy" papers, like the graph paper and ledger-style background, and especially the patches down the right side! Those die-namics are starting to look like "e-ssentials" to me, love the grass and the way you sponged the clouds! Gramps sure looks happy to be completing his round! Love the way you colored teh plaid!
