Golfer's Birthday Card for my Dad

Next weekend is my Dad's birthday! When thinking of my Dad, my mind almost always goes to golf since he loves the sport so much. He doesn't play that often anymore due to bodily ailments and having to care for my Mom all of the time, but he still watches it on TV and keeps up with all of the pro players!

Here is my simple card for him:

All of the cuts came from the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I was actually grabbing for my Sports Mania cartridge when I saw the little golf cart on the spine of the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. I completely forgot that it had golf images on it!

I embossed the golf ball with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, but flipped it to show the debossing to mimic the dimples of the golf ball. Then I stamped "Happy Happy Birthday" and "father" using My Pink Stamper stamps. I would have preferred Dad, but father is what I had, so I went with it.

I am entering this card in the So Saturdays Challenge #9 at Card Creations and More By C, which I discovered through Gigi the Cricut Bug. Thanks, Gigi! Gosh I love that girl's blog! Her card is way better, but I'm still just trying to dabble in this challenge thing. It definitely pushes me to get crafting more! :)

Ok, off to work on teacher gifts for another challenge. Have a great week, my fellow crafters!!
