It's Been a Long Time!

I can't believe that it's been since April that I last posted!  I know it's been a long time, but our daughter's wedding took up most of my time.  She's finally married and the wedding was beautiful.  We had such a gorgeous day and the bride and groom are so very happy.  It seems so long since I've been in my stamping room.  It felt so good to get my fingers dirty again!
This card is for a friend of mine who just shot a hole in 1!  For the sun, I punched a 1 1/4" circle and sponged daffodil delight ink in the negative hole created by the punch.  Then I took the positive circle, and covered my sun so that when I did the sky, it wouldn't get colored with blue.  I masked off a horizon and sponged in the clouds, then masked off the sky and brayered in the grass (the putting green).  I stamped little bits of grass from the Watercolor Minis stamp set (retired).  The hole cup is an oval and the ball is 3/4" circle punch that I ran through a cuttlebug folder (dotted swiss).  I used the de-bossed side that I thought looked like the dimples on a golf ball.  For the flag, I snipped real red cardstock with my scissors and wrote in the lucky 13 (number of the hole on the course) and dotted a white border with my gel pen.  I can't wait to mail this off. 
It 's good to be back.  Thanks for your patience and for stopping by today.
