Father's Day Trio

As I've bored you with before I'm not a lover of making men's cards but it's got to be done. At least with birthdays you only have to do one at a time and if you're lucky they're spread throughout the year. Not with Father's Day! I have to make 3 and preferably all different so that was my big challenge yesterday and today and I've just manage to pull it off.
This card is for my step-dad though I hate calling him that because he's been a real dad to me for about 39 years. I always say that the only steps in my house are the ones going upstairs.

He's been a lover of golf for as long as I've known him and used to play in a lot of tournaments ang bring home trophies on a regular basis. He got my mom hooked on golf too and she's got her fair share of trophies AND a hole in one!! I was talking to my sister Shelly yesterday and she was golfing with my dad on Thursday and she got a hole in one on a par 3!!! She said my dad was so excited because both she and my mom had one even though he didn't lol.
This image was a freebie from Bugaboo and Jodie has a free digital stamp or three each week. I did the sentiment on the computer. After I had printed the image I cut it out with my Nesties then stuck it to a piece of paper 'landscape' then ran it through the printer and voila!

I thought this button was broken but on closer examination it was meant to look like this. It's a bit hard to see through the twine.

This card's for my FIL and he's a keen golfer too.

I've had these little clips from SU Up! buried in my drawer guessed it....ages!! I saw a card recently using one so I dug them out and used it on this card. I think it's super cute!

And finally, this one's for my dad. He's not into golf at all but does love his hockey.

My colouring of the peanut is a bit 'un-peanut like' but I've never coloured one before lol. Now if I had of downloaded the Soccer nut I could have done what
Jeannie did! Jeannie is so clever and I LOVE her work :-D
I'm off to Zumba tonight and I'm really looking forward it. Then there's the class in the morning and I'd like to think that after 4 sessions I might have gained some kind of rhythm and coordination lol. Wish me luck!
Catch ya later x

I'm with you on this one - mens cards are so hard to do. You've done well though! I'll need to get a move on with mine for next week too. My dad doesn't so sport so I always do the DIY theme eg tools etc x
