A Tee-rific Birthday

Hi everyone! Did you have a great weekend? I certainly did! Got lots accomplished! One of the things I did was make a few birthday cards to replenish my stash. It had gotten low while I was concentrating on Christmas cards. Unfortunately, I got stuck on birthdays and still have more thank you cards to make!

Here's one of the birthday cards I made

(click to enlarge)

It uses the little golfing boy drawn by Cheryl Alger for Squigglefly. He's colored with Copic markers and the sky and grass are chalked. Then I stamped some grass using one of the stamps in the mini watercolors Stampin' Up! set.

The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a smaller nestabilities die in the same shape that the image is cut. I sponged some yellow around the edges of both of them. I think this is especially cute if you happen to know someone who is a golfer, but it still works for a general birthday card, don't you agree?

Just one more week until the challenges start back up at the Squigglefly blog! I hope you'll try to play along in a few this year, and I can't wait to see what the new design team does!

I wish you all a TEE-rific day! LOL! Thanks for looking!

This is so cute! I love golf cards. Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I have been a fan of Squigglefly for a long time and have done a number of cards with their images. It's probably time for me to go shopping again for some new images. LOL!
