Off to the 19th hole?

Time for a card for a 'chap' - never top of my list - and it's for the current challenge over at Allsorts, where this week's challenge is 'Any Sport' - perhaps heading determinedly towards the 19th hole still counts as part of the sport :)
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- pre-coloured image from LOTV's 'Vintage Boys' pad, die cut with a 'Wonky Square' Nestie and mounted onto a hand cut larger piece

- plain SU backing card - 'Midnight Muse'

- card from DCWV's 'The Juniper Berry Stack' - half of the sheets come with foil/glitter, and this particular sheet cried 'Pick me, pick me' when it saw the image :)

- plain 'Midnight Muse' label punched with a label punch (Hobbycraft's own brand) and topped with a smaller white label, which was stamped using a label stamp from Elzybells 'Mini Tag Set' and TH 'Faded Jeans' ink pad. Sentiment is from LOTV's 'Small General Greetings'

- then I just punched a hole in the assembled label and tied it round using baker's twine

Wahoo, I just found a new monthly challenge over at LOTV and this month's theme is 'Boy Oh Boy' - so I'm entering this card :) 

OK, back to those bookmarks here, sigh.



  1. Fab card Di. I guess it's a case of 'a change is as good as a rest' :-) I hope you are nearly at the end of those bookmarks now.

  12. As far as I'm concerned, 'the Nineteenth Hole' is the only reason for golf. Not a fan (give me cricket any day!) but this cute little boy could make me change my mind lol! I love the 'Wonky Square' and the gorgeous Argyle patterned paper!

    love Mags B x
