Happy Birthday Jeff!

Wednesday July 15th was my BIL Jeff''s Birthday. He is married to my younger sister, Alice. He is a Pentecostal Minister and has a great sense of humour and loves to golf. I based his card on this sketch - Mojo Monday 94.

I'm too late to enter this into their contest for July but I really like this sketch and will be making another golf themed birthday card for my other BIL Doug who is married to my older sister, Tina.

I can't believe I had the balls (er nerve) to make a card for him with this particular sentiment. When I gave it to Alice yesterday to give to Jeff; she got a chuckle out of it and I'm sure Jeff will like it too!


Here is the inside sentiment:


And here is the inside image:

I used my cuttlebug to cut and emboss the different elements to this card. I used the Swiss Dots folder and a circle punch to make the golf ball on the front of the card. Ribbon and paper are from my stash and ink is from Versa Mark.

I am entering this card in my niece Krista's challenge on her blog which is to make a masculine card or layout.


Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Oma, Thank you for joining our blog. I noticed you also had to do a golf card - just loved the sentiment! - We know this particular family and we hadto make cards for - {every male plays golf) so we found it difficult not to make the same card but in the end managed it! Liz xx
