Father's Day.....and a bit of Golf!

Father's Day is around the corner and I will be the first to admit.....it's a tough "creating" holiday for me.  Why? Because all of my favorite things are out the window. Glitter? Out! Ribbon? Nope! Flowers? Are ya kidding me? So what's a girl to do? Make it simple!  Now on other people, I love simple.  But it's just not me.  I always feel it's missing something.  (Like the ton of crap embellishments I put on my cards usually! ; )

So I did my best.....and this was my end product.  I used JustRite's, Going Places Vintage Labels stamp set.  I stamped it twice and cut out the airplane. I did a bit of embossing, added a bit of twine and added ONE orange pearl.  That's it. Simple. For me anyway. 
And many of you were asking about my golf experience.  Overall it was a good one!  The weather was perfect, I was on a "date" with my hubby, and I was with good friends.  (Which we forgot to get a picture of all 4 of us!) My favorite is our friend, Rich, who is looking for his golf ball in the "rough."  See? I know golf lingo!  

My pain in the butt van is in the shop again. The air has been broken for over a year.....long story. But let me just tell you, having a handicapped van stinks! Nothing about it has been easy or inexpensive. The money we've spent on maintaining it is ridiculous! So I am trying a new mechanic and keeping my fingers crossed that he will be able to fix my air!  
Have a great day my friends!

AWESOME card! And I'm in shock...I don't think there is a speck of glitter on that thing! Hee-hee! Sorry about your van! I can imagine that must be challenging to maintain! The air in my mini is broken right now, too, if it makes you feel any better?! LOL!

It is awesome!You do such great work! I've been golfing once in my life and it's not too high on my list of things I must do! I'd be the one in the rough 90% of the time!

Your card is perfect! The airplane, even the orange pearl - it's the perfect touch for a masculine card. Good luck with the van - it stinks that you are having so much trouble with it.

Love this card! That stinks about the van. I got my fingers crossed for ya. I'm in GA so I especially feel your pain on the no A/C. Hoping this new mechanic can get it right for you this time. Hang in there!!
