Fore! And Thanks Peeps. . .

Hiya folks!

Yet another wet and windy day here in NE Scotland, gets frustrating after a while. Soooo much to do in the garden, and it's either too cold, wet, windy or scorching to do it - lol. Never happy are we??

Well, I'd like to express my gratitude to all those folks who have ventured across to the Midnight Madness Challenge Blog to VOTE FOR ME!! Thank you all so much - I have gone past the TEN that I had hoped for - yeay!! Given up all hope of winning that award though, as the leader is well over 100 - boo-hoo. Never was any good at popularity contests. Should have been a vote for the best card rather than the person with most friends. I hated all that at school with house captains and all that crap. Still, it was nice to be recognised - thanks again all!!

Right, on to more pressing matters - lol. My card for today has been made with Father's Day in mind. Not sure whether to give this to my Dad yet. He likes his golf, but hasn't played it for a while as he got a bit miffed at his lack of talent, LOL. Might just make a cricket one yet. I think he still likes watching it. Never appealed to me all that sporty stuff, too busy crafting!!

I have used the sketch at Mojo Monday for this card. Thought it was about time I started playing there too when I can. The theme at I Love Digi is 'DAD' this week, so I'm entering that one too. There is a theme of 'Monotone' at Totally Papercrafts, and as mine is mostly green, I am going to enter there as well.

I have used a plaid paper background in a tint and as full colour. This I have had on the compy since the year dot and can't for the life of me think where it came from. I have also used a tartan that has been scanned in and made greyscale for me to change the colour whenever I want to. The dotty backing is from Funky Hand.

My image is my own design, which I have now loaded onto my shop, Delicious Doodles. It is a Golf Ball and Tee, which I printed out three times, coloured with my watercolour pencils and layered up with foam pads. The brad and ribbon are from my stash.

OK then folks, off now to start doing the kids some tea. Pizza, Garlic Bread and Chips tonight, followed this evening by some yummy but very naughty nibbles in the shape of Pringles and Doritos!! Lovely and healthy - LOL
