What do you call more than one Golfer?

Evening all!
Back to feeling like I am in the police and bending my knees whilst saying the above, or is that just me?
Did you miss me yesterday?
I bet you didn't.
I had a busy day this end but I knew it would be, by the time I sat down later in the evening I just wanted to relax.

Another busy day at work today but I do have tomorrow off before my early shift on Saturday. Today I wanted to share with you a couple of bespoke cards I made last week for a lady whose twin brothers were turning 65, with the theme golf but both different.

Now you have to use your imagination a little for this.  The golf ball is central to the green with the 65 on it.  Too cryptic, I hope not.  The golf charms are by dress it up buttons and the paper is from my stash.  I have used my cricut to cut the age and circles and my Cuttlebug embossing folder dots for the texture.

This card I decided to use scraps to create a map of a golf hole, complete with flag.  The club and ball are again dress it up buttons.  
I had a wee giggle to myself whilst making this card as the first green went up and over above the writing on the left.  When I placed it on the card to add the other embellishments it very much looked like a certain part of the male anatomy!  
If I was seeing this, I couldn't send the card, can you imagine the comments?! 
I did ask my eldest boy what did he think it was going to be and he said Shrek's w*****!
Back to the drawing board then.  That said I do like the idea of a birds eye view of the golf hole and hope the recipient understands my thinking!

It does help to be slightly mad now and again!

Time for me to sign off now, I hope you are all fit and well this Thursday?  Not long now and it will soon be the weekend.
Catch you tomorrow to share an oldie too?  Why not join me?
Take care and happy crafting.  x

Hi Erika, both cards are super, great designs and embellishments.

Erika two fab cards, know that tired feeling, thought I'd get some me time when they went back to school. But no Anna started high school Tuesday and has been off since, not well at all, and so upset about being off. So long, long week as I will have to work the weekend too, mum away with Beth to a big pony thing that Beth is competing in and dad on call. Isn't life just fun at times. Hazel x
