Raymond has taken his eye off the ball ....

This is retired Raymond - a golfer - and it looks as if this is all he wants to do all day.  However, I think he is in the rough, and he has not got his eye on the ball - as there is a bird sitting right by his club! 

Dad, was not, and never has been a golfer, but even at 90 he likes a good joke, and  I know he will find this amusing.

Raymond is a High Hopes stamp - I just love their quality, and the fact that they come cut and ready-mounted on a backing, so you can start work with them straight away.  I have coloured this with Copics, and roughly scuffed some distress inks over because I wanted it to look like the ball is in the rough.  The tree backgound and bird are also added extras.  Papers are Basic Grey and Core-dinations.  Ribbon is from atash.

  4. I like the 'rough' look to this image Val. I love it when an image is given a 'story' like this one. Great card.

  5. Love the little scene you have going on here Val. Bet your Dad will love it.

    Good luck with Linda's workshop next week and even more when she comes back, Lol! She'll either be totally gee'd up or very down in the dumps (that would be me in her shoes) for the second one but I wish I were coming with you.
