Have a PAR-fect Day

Today is the start of CAS Week at Just Us Girls. It is also my last week to be with The JUGs Design Team as Guest Designer. What a wonderful group of crafters to work with! They have been so warm and welcoming and I have really enjoyed my time with them. Thank you all from the bottom of my art for having me!!

With regard to my card, though my stash seems as deep as the deep blue sea, it does not contain anything sports-oriented... well, that is not entirely true. There's that fabulous swimmer/diver die. Hmmmm - I forgot about her. Anyway, one of my sons has recently fallen in love with golf and his birthday is coming, so I decided to make my sports-themed card for him. Since I now know how to use them, I went in search of a golf-themed digital stamp. I found this little Golf Gnomie on Etsy at PinkGemDesigns, printed him out, colored him with Copics, then set him in a CAS design with a strip of Tartan Plaid paper. I made my  sentiment strip on my computer and popped up on the right side... and it's a wrap! Thanks so much for coming by today!

Now please head over the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog to see what the DT has created for your inspiration. Get sportive and creative and play with us!

Golf is a game to be learned at any age at all, Stephanie! I picked up my first clubs when nearly 40! Good for J! He's going to love it - and hate it some days, too!
I LOve your golfer - he looks so dapper, no matter what his score.
You were such an excellent guest at JUGS, Stephanie - I'd bet my putter you'll be invited again!

I absolutely love this! Your golf gnomie is so darn cute and your background looks like a perfect golf day. The addition of the tartan plaid strip pairs perfectly with the golf theme. Thank you so much for joining us this past month with all of your fabulous creations and this one is definitely one of my favorites.
