Retired and Going Golfing

Coffee of the Day - Spiced Caramel Nut

no, not to worry. I am not retired, and more importantly, I am not going golfing. ;)  it has been ages since I was last swinging clubs - since I was pregnant with Tyler actually. yes, it's been THAT long! I used to golf every week with hubster and some friends, but again, that was another lifetime.

David, on the other hand, went just last week. he is truly a wonder to behold on the golf course. there are days that I miss those years of him being a golf pro. he is not only an amazing golfer, but patient and fun to watch. he has such a smooth golf swing and can hit it so very far! yes, I am proud of my hubby! :)

anyhow, my card today is for a very dear friend of ours who retired a month ago. yep, I'm late with my card. I need to make several for him, so you'll be seeing more retirement cards in the coming month. (hopefully! eek!) He and Dave work together in the Church District office.

the golf image is from Crafty Secrets and is part of the 'Golf Time' digital set. I also printed out then fussy cut the individual golf bag from this same set. it is adhered to the inside of the card. sorry I didn't take a photo. retirement sentiment is from Create with TLC. papers are from the Basic Grey Boxer collection, washi tapes & buttons are from my stash, and linen thread is by SU!. golf tee may or may not have come from hubby's golf bag..... la la la la la! card base was sprayed with 2 shades of glimmer mist. hey, gotta do something to help frou frou up these masculine cards!

I will actually be back tomorrow with another card, believe it or not! thank you so much for the kind thoughts and prayers about my health. still having seizures, but so happy to be able to craft these past 2 days.

love ya! :)

What a wonderful card! The coloring of the stamped image is perfection, and I confess, I squealed a little (with delight!) when I saw the twine wrapped golf tee! Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Crafty Secrets May Linky Challenge!
