Papercraft Star #4

♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥

This week at Papercraft Star we are challenged to base our project on our favorite sports team.
Who are they? How would they inspire me ? Colors ? Mascot ? Name ?

Well, golf is the game our lives revolved around for many many years. From Brie at age 8 I spent nearly every single afternoon on a golf course for ten years, watching her hit hundreds and hundreds of thousands of golf balls, lessons, tournaments, tv appearances, you name it ! After she was old enough to no longer need her mother to drive her around, her dad and I spent even more hours as volunteers with the Oregon Golf Association.

So, I would say that my favorite team would be an Oregon golf team, maybe men's or women's amateur teams, boys' or girls' teams, maybe Oregon State, maybe University of Oregon. No matter - they have all worked diligently to secure their team spot, and I am proud of them.

This card represents each of those players, old or young, man or woman. Maybe they are out at the crack of dawn, or as sun is setting. Maybe they were in the zone, maybe they were in the trees !

The challenge begins today, submissions close Saturday, 7/17 and voting closes Monday, 7/19. Hope to see you at Papercraft Star this week !! Even if you don't play, vote for your favorite - there is no better way to support your fellow artists!

Details :
Cardstock : Both black and Orange, Recollections
Golf Figure : Word clip art
Sticker : stash
Trees : cut with SCAL, freebie from
