I've been AWOL for a week, enjoying a lovely holiday in a beautiful self-catering house on the Norfolk Broads, with five other couples.  The twelve of us have been taking an annual holiday together, in different parts of the country, since 1990.  How time flies!

Today's card was for the caretaker in the school where I used to teach.  He celebrated his 81st birthday last week and is still doing his job!  
He still plays bowls regularly, so I thought this digi stamp from Digi Stamp Boutique would be perfect.  I coloured it with Promarkers.  The bowls at the bottom were made with black, punched circles.  I punched smaller yellow circles and used part of them to form the yellow circles on the bowls and added curved lines with a fine silver pen.  The bowls were attached with foam pads.  I used a Sizzix 'Dots' embossing folder for the background.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:


  1. I hope you had a good time with your friend- we had a lovely holiday on the Norfolk Broads a couple of years ago.
    This is a lovely card and perfect for a bowls player - I'm sure Harry will love it.

  2. Perfect, I'll have to look for this stamp. My Dad still plays bowls, in spite of two new knees, also at 81. Love the little bowls.

  3. Brilliant card Liz and a great image! I have quite a few male ones from Digi Stamp Bouique and they are always well received.
    Glad you had a good break with your friends.
