Blog Candy!!

I am getting behind! this is my 68th card.  I have 32 cards left to go with only 27 days to complete them!! I am talking about my personal challenge to create 100 cards in 100 days.  It has not been hard up til now but I failed to consider how crazy busy summer gets!  I hope you will help me see my way to the end of this challenge : ) there is BLOG CANDY up for grabs - by simply commenting on this post you will automatically be entered in the drawing for a chance to win my candy.  See all the details HERE

Welcome welcome to my two new followers!!

Alanna of Alanna's Spot in the World blog.  She says her blog is the place where "the creative outlet from my right brain meets up with the analytical nature of my left brain".  : ) She is a busy wife, mom and CPA not to mention a talented paper crafter!.  Also please join me in welcoming Diane of 1CardCreator blog.  She is a talented paper crafter with a bold and bright style.  A little birdie told me she also likes to cook!!.  Please blurf on over and leave some love on these two great blogs!

This card was created for my hubby for Father's Day.  He is a remarkable father and friend.  If I could I would give him a golf cart exactly like this! We used to have one and I know he regrets having given it up! 

I selected some SU solid cs and some striped paper that is so old it didn't even have a company name on it! LOL The golf ball was created by embossing the PTI Hexagon cover plate die and then cutting the circle with a Nestibilities die. (Please tell the truth did you get it that this was supposed to be a golf ball?? My husband did! I was amazed!! he actually said

"wow this looks just like a golf ball - how did you do that?! 

: ) (buttons busting) He likes my cards but sometimes he really takes note. : )  Anyway the golf cart stamp set and coordinating die was also a big hit : ) success! heehee

I best get back in the craft room and get some cards made.  I have borrowed a neat stamp set from a friend of mine so my next series of cards are going to be birthday cards using CTMH "Just a Number" stamp set.  The sentiments are a hoot! Stay tuned : )
