Sunday Share: Two Hobbies in One


Golfing is a fun hobby for me and my hubby.  We like to spend our Florida summers working on our golf game.  When I’m not chasing my ball down the fairway (or into the woods! haha!) then I’m inspired by golf in my paper crafts.  Check out the card below… even my devoted hubby helped me with this one!  What a sweetie!!

We created the golf club with the 3/16 Corner Punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, and Simply Scored Tool.  The golf ball is the de-embossed Perfect Polka Dots Folder.














For the inside of this card, the golf ball is in the hole!

In this feminine floral birthday card, I paired Rose Red Cardstock and Tangerine Tango Cardstock. I love the four-corner layout jazzed up with the Scallop Punch element, Perfect Polka Dots Folder and Floral District Designer Series Paper. This layout was inspired by Mojo Monday #249

Happy Birthday to my beautiful sister, Makayla!

Featuring: Debra’s Peek-A-Boo Boy Birthday Card

At last week’s stamp camp, we created our own Peek-A-Boo cards.  This is Debra’s creation for her young nephew.  I love the Pacific Point….in varying textures and dimensions!  The Blue Ribbon stamp set was a great choice for this layout.  What a great idea!  Thanks for sharing, Debra!
