On course!

Hello, Id just like to show the cards that Ive made for my brother and sister, their birthdays are on Sunday.  Bryan is a mad sport fan although retired now he is just back from a golfing trip to Cornwall earlier this week!  20 of them went in a minibus and the trips have been going for many years now, all I can say is my SIL had a wonderful few days in full control of the remote!

This is the first time for me to merge two images, I guess that is expected when using a sentiment digi so I used Publisher and arranged the sentiment to be on the golf ball.  The sentiment is by Create with TLC and the fab golfing image itself is by Teri at Delicious Doodles.  Im really happy with how well the merge looks and will be playing with it a whole heap more!

As you may be aware, I just LOVE poppies as does my eldest sister so Ive made her another card with poppies but this time with my recent purchase from Just Inklined.

(I see that the hue has been adjusted on this photo so will change it later)  Here's the close ups of the poppy onto which Ive used my PM's alongh with the pen nib of a few Whisper Strokes pens for the fine line detail.

I quite liked the crisp contrast from the black & white gingham (by Pink Petticoat) to the corner poppy image.  Ive used a little mirri card for the QK swirls, I made a tissue flower using my nesties and coloured it to match the poppy using the same PM and finished off with a trio of red buttons!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend, there is something happening here on Sunday that is supposed to be a surprise for me!  I will tell all next week!

Wow wow wow!! Keryn this cards are absolutely brilliant. The golf one is so good, love how you used the two images and the green check works perfectly. The poppy one is outstanding, so crisp and clean and the image stands out so beautifully and I love your tissue flower. Had a play with tissue earlier but it went to the bin lol.
