Golf Anyone?

   This tag is for Mike's dad who turns 89 November 20th! He LOVES watching golf, so this is perfect! I love this Stampabilities Vintage Golfer stamp.
   Cuttlebug EF is called Argyle; safety pin, button brad and twill is Stampin' Up! Paper clip is TH. The 2 square metal embellies are Michael's $1.50 bin. Underneath the golfer is a piece of wrinkled TH Kraft Glassine paper; page torn from an old paperback, inked with DI Antique Linen and Vintage Photo; ruler sticker is TH also.
   
Closeup (click on photos for larger images):
   The Mark Twain quote is from the web. How true! Mike and I golf, at least I try to! It's a great way to get some exercise in and something we can enjoy together. Golf can be a good walk spoiled depending on the game you're having!


Entering this tag in the following challenges:
1. Fashionable Stamping Challenge #8: Times Gone By
2. The Stamp Man: Collage/Collage Background

  Thanks for stopping by! Leave a word or two before you go! Got to get back to my Christmas tags. Promised myself I would get at them earlier this year! So far so good!


Get Inky!
