Last Minute Father's Day Card!

OK so who stole this week? There was me sitting chilling with a nice glass of vino collapso and the phone goes and it's work, wanting to know if I want to do some extra hours - so as you do, I declined politely.

My lovely colleague at the other end of the line then said "see you tomorrow then!" At which point the conversation went something like this:

Me "Huh, I don't think so!!"
Colleague "You're not down as taking leave?"
Me "It's Thursday tomorrow and I do Friday..."
Colleague "Ummm - It's Friday tomorrow!!!"
Me "No way", glances casually at the date on the lappy, "oh pants - I've lost a day!"
Colleague laughing at this point "See ya tomorrow then!"

So not gutted enough that I was going to have work in the morning, I realised that I hadn't done my DT card for this week's Delicious Doodles Challenge which is One For The Fellas! Gulp a man's card needing to be done and quickly!! Not a great feeling! Anyway, I've knocked something together - not one of my best I'm afraid and you'll have to excuse the dodgy pictures cos they were taken at night, and this is it...........

I printed out the image Golf Ball & Tee three times, coloured it with Promarkers, cut it out and mounted it onto Green Bazzill Card using silicone glue. The golf ball has been de-bossed using a freebie embossing folder. The sentiment is computer generated and I've used my Cropadile Big Bite to set some eyelets, before threading onto string. I'm certain my Dad will like this card - only cos he loves anything golf based ;D

Anyway, thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a fab weekend - those of us in the UK will be battening down the hatches as there is a huge storm forecast to hit :( On the bright side it means more time for crafting!! :D
