Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog #308-Vacations

Welcome to our newest challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - Vacations.   The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project, and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I love going on golf vacations even though I don't golf - my husband does.  I love golf vacations because we go where it's warm and beautiful.  I have time to myself to read, sun, shop, rest and sometimes craft (if I take supplies with me).  I usually get a few pictures of my hubby on the course and sometimes even ride the cart with him as he plays.  It's very peaceful and relaxing.  And we spend time together after he finishes his round, doing whatever we feel like doing after enjoying a nice lunch or dinner. So I decided to make a card in honor of these wonderful times.  Here it is:

The golf bag and sun are Cricut cuts.  I cut the golf bag from white paper and from brown paper, and paper pieced the brown bag over the white one after cutting off the brown clubs.  I colored the white clubs with a Spectrum Noir marker.  The golf balls were made using a hole punch.  I used inks to distress the sun and the top edge of the grass.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap, cut around it and inked the sides.  I created the sky with Distress Ink and hand cut the grassy hill from card stock.  I smile when I think of fun in the sun on a golf course with my husband.

Card stock:  Recollections 110 lb and 60 lb
Stamp:  Stampin' Up Pursuit of Happiness sent to me by my blog buddy, Darnell (I'll have to tell you more about that at another time.)
Spectrum Noir Marker:  IG1
Inks:  Distress Broken China; Color Box Banana; Close to My Heart Olive
Cricut Cartridges:   Celebrate with Flourish (golf bag); Art Philosophy (sun)
