JRC_028 - A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Good morning everyone!  It is finally FRIDAY!!!  Before I get to my card for today I have a few announcements to make.

First, be sure to stop by my blog on Sunday July 25 for a special announcement.  I don't want to spoil the surprise but you won't want to miss it.

Second, also on Sunday I will be flying to Chicago to attend CHA.  I am super excited.  I will be working at the JustRite booth so if you happen to be attending, be sure to stop in and say hi.  I will be pre-posting some projects that will be showing here on my blog while I am at CHA so be sure to check it out.

Now on to my card for today.  I am playing along with this week's JustRite Friday challenge which is called "A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words".  The challenge is to use a photograph on your card. 

For my photo I chose this one taken earlier this Spring of my husband Mike (far right), his brother Ralph (far left) and their dad.  If you are a regular reader of my blog you already know that I married into a "golfing" family.  My husband also has a sister who golfs.  Every year they all get together and play golf at least once.  They really enjoy it.  I'm thinking that I may use this card for Father's Day next year.  It is a really nice photo of the 3 Barkhouse men.

To create the card, I chose the sentiment "A Perfect Day" from the newly released JustRite set called "Cherish The Memories".  This stamp set has some great sentiments perfect for that special card or even great for scrapbook pages.  I thought this sentiment was the perfect saying for this photo.  To create the verse along the bottom of my card "Golfing With Dad", I used the Times Roman Uppercase and Lowercase
font sets.  My "golf balls" were created with Spellbinders Nestabilities and Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Be sure to check back on Sunday for another announcement!!
