Back from Vacation and a.....CARD!

Hello! I just got back from a two week vacation at the beach. We had so much fun--For the second week, all my siblings rented houses in the same few blocks and we went to the beach and boardwalk together every day. We all were together with my parents on my dad's 70th birthday. Now we are back home and trying to unpack (again!) and get back to our new life here.

I created this card for my dad's 70th birthday from all of his children. We gave him a gift certificate for custom golf clubs so I created a golf club card: I created the golf bag and clubs by looking at pictures and just designing my own. I added some stitching to make the bag look more realistic. The "70" was cut from Cuttlebug letters. I stamped the background of the card using a sentiment from Our Craft Lounge - Golfin Gramps. It says "Have a Par-fect day!" hee! (I created my dad's birthday card last year using this set too---a definite fav for my golf lovin dad!)

Thanks for stopping by today! Off to do lots a laundry :)

That is a really cute idea! My brother sells for Calloway, and LOVES golf, so this would be PERFECT for him! I'll be keeping this idea in my favorites!
