Sweet One

Happy Saturday to you!! We made our Saturday morning a little (OK, a lot) happy by going miniature golfing at our favorite local course. It's a fun place with a tropical island theme, complete with tree house, grass huts, (fake) palm trees, a pirate ship, and a koi pond. We got there a little after they opened at 8 a.m. to beat the heat (it's 93F here as I write this now) and had the added bonus of having the place to ourselves. That was sweeeeeeeeet! In our fun game, DH scored 1 under par, I scored 2 over (but I didn't even care because we were having such a blast--plus I got a hole in one!), and the kids opted not to be scored. Afterward we picked up some free fish food in the clubhouse, and the kids fed the koi while I totaled our scores.

Once home again, I got right to work on making a baby card I need for Monday when I deliver a meal to the family of a newborn. Ever since seeing The Play Date Cafe Challenge colors for this week, I knew that I would be using purple and green on this card. I also wanted to try this cute sketch for this week's Crafty Creations Challenge. In additional challenges I was inspired by purple flower earrings, spurred to use felt, and prompted to use a sentiment as my focal point. OK, so if you throw all of that inspiration together, this is what you get:
Well, that's it for now. I hope it's cooler where you live! If you are interested in details about the supplies I used in this card or the challenges I played in (including links), you should click here. Thanks for stopping by! :)

This card is so cute! I love the paper you chose and all your embellishments--nothing more perfect than some purple safety pins! Love the ribbon & twine combo, too.

Jealous of your mini golf--we surprisingly do not have one here! Sounds like a fun morning. :)

I love mini golfing! There are four fabulous courses on the Island where my in-laws live and every summer we end up laying each course when we visit them for a week. Jeff and I used to play "loser buys ice cream". I don't golf so he used to give me strokes for each side until I started beating him LOL! Kids love it too and are getting much better as they get older. Glad you all had fun!

Darling baby card. Love the pins and the felt flowers are darling. I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated :)

Wow, Em, fabulous card! It looks worthy of being in a publication. Oh, and I see you won Flourishes' challenge for the new horse/carousel set - congratulations! Are you getting a big head yet from all of your winnings?? Once again, I'm not sure if I can talk to you anymore. ;)
