My Schedule Is All Askew!

Sunday, 2 December 2012

Hi all,

I'm a bit late posting this cos the post I had scheduled for Friday has disappeared!  So I'll try again and hopefully it'll work this time!

I had scheduled it cos I was away on Thursday and Friday for a couple of days of pampering with my friend in a fabulous hotel called the Galgorm Resort & Spa.  It is the most fantastic and beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in!  We were so relaxed and happy while we were there that we were sad to leave.  It was made all the better because I had won vouchers for the hotel at the Stonecrushers Ball in October so we didn't even have to pay for it!

Anyway, it's time for another challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and it was the turn of the lovely Pat to choose a theme and she chose...

V for Vintage!

I always love to see other peoples vintage cards and projects because I'm not very good at vintage!

But here's my attempt anyway:

I made a circle easel card for my mum to give to my dad for his 60th birthday, so not only is the card kinda vintage - so is the recipient! lol!  Only joking! lol

The image is Big Guy Golfing by Mo's Digital Pencil which I coloured with the following copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Shirt;Y15,13,11. Jumper;YG97,95,93. Trousers, Shoes & Hat;E59,57,55,53. Club;100,C3,1. Grass;YG05,03,97,95,09,25,G07.
I love this image cos my dad has a habbit of sticking out his tongue when he's doing anything!

I used a large circle die from Go Kreate to make the card base and Spellbinders Std circle lg for the image and petite oval lg for the sentiments.  I used my swiss dots embossing folder back-to-front so the dots were debossed to make it look like a golf ball.

The sentiment was computer generated using the font "Chocolate Box Decoration".
The numbers were die cut from kraft card using Die-Namics "By The Numbers" dies and attached with foam pads and everything was aged with Vintage photo distress ink.

So go and see the rest of the DT's fab inspiration at the Alphabet Challenge Blog and join in with the fun - it's a great theme for Christmas cards too!

Hi Sheena. Wow...sounds like your hotel getaway was heavenly!! Good for you, girl!! Your card is so, so cute. I love that the card actually looks like a golf ball!! I think I'll be "borrowing" this idea for my brother-in-law's upcoming birthday!! Your coloring is stunning too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at Mo's Hugs. Pat Frank
