I'm getting a start on making birthday cards for my May birthdays. My youngest grandson has really taken to golf in a big way. My oldest grandson is into it too, as are my sons. It comes from my hubby and I wish he was here to see how much his grandsons love the game. It was Bills passion. My youngest has caddied for the past two years at a country club and will again this year.  In addition, he will be working at another course getting the carts out and doing whatever needs to be done. He is also on the JV golf team at his high school.

The reason for this story is to show you the card I made for him. The cover for this card is leather like that I made from watching a video from https://www.frenchiestamps.com/ on May 20th. She used a leaf e/f and I did too only because there are so many trees on the golf course so it went with the theme. Inside is a golf  stamp and sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms, an older company no longer in business.  I colored with Copics. I think he will get a kick out of it. Be kind to one another.

  5. Well DONE, on the leather technique. I've watched some videos on this, but never tried it. Love the EF you chose - it's pretty and works great for the theme of the golfers in your family. The inside golf nut is just cool, and your young grandson is going to love this! You're doing so many different techniques these days...very proud of you & your fantastic results too. TFS & Hugs
