My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Hi Everyone,
While it's not golfing weather yet where I live, I know my Dad wishes that it was.  He'll probably be heading to sunny Florida before the winter is over, so he'll get a small taste of his favorite sport before spring time comes :)

Anyway, this card was made with him in mind.  Heck, I don't even like golf, but this sunny little scene almost makes me wish I did !  
I used the set Golf-Green Pastures #189 from Sparkle N Sprinkle, colored the image with Copic markers and sponged on some ink for the sky and grass. I decided to paper piece the tree and shrub using the same polka dot paper I used for the background and thought it would be acceptable to use a bit of glitter (Evening Glow #1086 & Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter #GM2000) to bling up the sun and cloud, even though this card is for a guy :)  It adds just the right amount of cheerfulness, don't you think?

I've had this golf ribbon in my stash forever, so I was happy to put it to use on this card and buttons are my go to embellishment for guy cards.  

Thanks for peeking in today!  Have a good one :)

Hi Karin, this card is just perfect for a golfer. The paper pierced tree and shrubs look very nice. And bling certainly adds more cheer. The buttons are very nice and the ribbon is awesome. I thought it was a sentiment.

Cute! I would love to jump into this scene right now and I don't golf either. Your paper pieced trees are darling.
