Wax Fruit Company Golfer


I've taken a few mental health days to mass produce more cards for my Operation Write Home box.  Our deadline for Father's Day cards is this Saturday, May 21st and that's been my goal for this box to be shipped.  Thank heaven for Priority Mail if I ship today it will arrive at Sandy's by Saturday!


Don't worry the bow on the box is just to hold it open.


It's almost full!

I found this image at the Wax Fruit Company and though it would make a wonderful Father's Day card and be fun to mass produce.  Golf makes me think of argyle so I had to go in search of Argyle digital papers and really scored at Sassy Designs, 80 cents a paper pack right now!  I know my card says Happy Birthday but the ones for OWH say Happy Father's Day.  

I used Copic markers to color the image T1, C3, C2, C1, C00, E44, E43, E42, E41, YG11, BG0000, BG000, BG01, BG05.  The layout is from a sketch but I didn't use the entire sketch because of the unusual shape of this image.  That's one of the things that drew me to this image, it's different shape.  The aqua cardstock is from Ellen Hutson's online store.

I also saw a neat card on Facebook recently by Andrea Walford that I C.A.S.E.d to use up my digital designer paper scraps.  
I found these to be slightly addicting...
