Request from Grandpa (my daddy)

My Dad called me this week at work, and scared the **** out of me. He NEVER calls me at work, maybe email, but he called my work cell phone. Well after making sure that he and my Mom were fine, I think my heart started beating normally. He was calling to ask me to make a Thank you card for a buddy of his. I was so floored, you see he isn't in to the card making stuff.


This is the first card that I have made for him. I figure I will make a few so he can have a selection to choose from. The card needed to have a Golf theme so I used the Back Nine retired set from SU!. I stamped the image with Timber Brown Staz on ink. Then I highlighted all the circles with the white pencil, and all the lines with the dark brown pencil. (Note: Thanks to Sarah for the pencils!!!) Then I water colored the rest of the image.

Well what do you think?

Stamps: The Back Nine, Riveting, Dotted, Linen Inks: Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, River Rock, Blush Blossom, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Going Grey, Timber Brown Staz On Paper: Confetti Cream, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou Extras: Distressing tool, Corner Rounder, 1" & 1 1/4" circle punches, dimensionals, paint brush, primsacolor pencils

Awesome job, Corie. I can never use this set as well as I'd like. Clearly you captured the essence of this stamp.
