One For the Guys. . . . . . . .


Good morning to you all. Hope this finds you feeling champion (Not the Wonder Horse as the RSPCA would get involved lol!)

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on Nesta's Bangle Box. I really hope her niece keeps it but she is a bit of a fickle creature so goodness knows whether she will. I'd rather not know as I'd be heartbroken if it got binned.
As for Inkpadgate, I didn't see the offending minx daubing it everywhere but there were small fingerprints on a 12x12 First Edition pad (sacrilege and something worthy of capital punishment in my book) so I take heart that the errant parents would have had a lot of cleaning of the little darling and probably its clothing too. 
Sadly, its a regular event when you're working with ink pads, glitter glues and acrylic paints. Maybe if we made them top shelf? (steady, not that kind of top shelf lol!!!).

Now, today's offering is a change from what I was going to show as John featured a mica-ed peacock feathers mask card yesterday and that was what you were going to get from me today. I'm not brave enough to to show it immediately after John's so I'll keep it until you're likely to have forgotten his gem lol! 
This one was made for my brother in law (Mr Duck's brother) who is a very keen golfer (so guess what theme card he gets every year lol?) I have a few sporty Docrafts toppers I keep for the fellas so they do come in handy. I did die cut the topper too to get that nice embossed edge around it, like the frames.


Ingredients
White base card
White and black PMD card
SB A2 Matting Basics A & B
Docrafts Golfer topper
Creative Expressions sentiment stamp
Bundled Sage DI
Black archival ink



Quite straightforward but with the recessed frames to add a bit of dimension.
Mr D's brother was very happy with it. He's a graphic designer so does take a keen interest in my handmade stuff.

Meeting up with our John this morning, so it will be nice to have a catch up.
Hope you have a great start to your weekend, whatever you are doing and thank you, as always, for popping by for a paddle.

Ps, forgot to say thanks to Lesley for her offer of letting me use her Big Shot Pro. I was actually hinting at John as he's a bit nearer than you lol!

  17. Great card I have one of the matting basics which I don't use that often because although for 5x7 the proportions aren't (or is it just me?) perhaps if I get the second set, the borders would be narrower and better...

  18. Hi Ang. Great card, embossing the edge of topper ties it all in really well. Have a good day. Take care.

  19. Hi Ang I have not had much chance at Blog visiting this last week,I thing God got up one morning,and had not much to do,so he decided,that I had not suffered enough,so sent lots of stuff that causes bad pain to me.
    I love all your cards ,and you are a very brave lady to make a card for John,but it turned out smashing .I have not made a card for a year,so fairly rusty.Ireland is drowning in water today,so back to winter,
    Smiles,
    Ita.
