Another Father's Day card

I made this card for a Monthly Bella swap I'm in on SCS - this month's theme was Father's Day. I saw one very similar on someone's blog & for the life of me, I CANNOT find out where I saw it...so if this is your idea....let me know & I will give credit where credit is due! I traced the lid of my embellisment holder to make the round card (Nestabilities were too small & I forgot I had the Coluzzle circles....oops), then ran the one side through my Cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots folder. I dirtied it up a bit, cut some grass, and used my Karen Foster snap stamps "FORE" the sentiment.
Here is the card opened - with a pop up golfer (Golfafella). I left the inside blank in case they didn't want to use it for Father's Day - it could be any type of card for a golfer. I've never made a pop up card - it was easy & kinda fun!! I could see myself making more kids' cards like this...they'd love it!!!

Hope you all had a good weekend. Mine was good, busy....but worth it!! Friday night I stamped with friends for a few hours, then Sat. I went out to the Stampers Celebration in Airdrie with a couple friends - that was cool! We spent 3 hours there and there were only 7 vendors! THOUSANDS of stamps, new products, supplies, paper...it was awesome!! I spent a "little" bit of money (THANKS DONELDA!!!) but am happy with my purchases!! Now to find the time to play!!!! Today was my niece's First Communion then my whole family got together at my sister's acreage and sat outside in the sun! What a glorious day!! Wasn't too long ago I was complaining about the snow!!! NOW, I'm exhausted and NEED to clean my craft room before I can play with my new glitter!! Can't wait to share what I create!!!
