Lost balls!

Now be honest, have you ever walked into a room and then can't remember what you came in for??? Yep, happens to me often and as I get older I think it is happening more and more!!

Well imagine if you were a golfer and the older you got the harder is was to remember where you left your balls. And a man with no balls is not much good (is he girlies??).

My card today is for a man fast approaching his 80th Birthday and I am not sure if he really does forget where his balls are when playing around (bad pun I know!) but thought this card would make him giggle.

I used the sketch from this weeks challenge on Fetch A Sketch. I will be entering into the Cards for Men 'sports with a sentiment' challenge and the Cutie Pie 'one for the boys' challlenge.

I got to use the retro papers from 'stampin' up and the image is a digi from Bugaboo Stamps. I used my promakers to colour the image although not sure that lilac coloured flags are ever seen on a golf course??

I have just finished my first week of posting everyday and hope it has not been too much for you. I was only able to do this as I had a few bursts of creativity......I didn't craft everyday unfortunately just scheduled posts as the week went along. Still I feel like I have achieved something and deserve a Friday night G and T.

Have a good weekend x
