RAK and Contest Card

Hi friends, TGIF, whoo hoo!!! I'm ready for a fun weekend--we're going to the big state Fair, yee haw! And the weather is going to be great, but not too hot, yes! I hope you are gearing up for a great weekend, too with plans full of family friends and good times!
First, I must share this beautiful RAK I recieved from my great pal, Jessie! I was sorta mia in the blogging world over the summer, and Jessie just wanted to make sure I was still alive, I'm sure, lol! She is such a sweetie pie! And just look at this gorgeous creation! I adore her cards, every single one is a superb work of art, this is true. I'm so lucky and blessed to have friends like Jessie in my life. Thank you for your support, inspiration and friendship. What a blessing.
I entered the My Favorite Things contest to make a card that is sassy, sarcastic or ironic....I think I chose sarcastic, lol! I don't have any funny MFT stamps, so I chose this sentiment from DRS Designs, which I just think is hilarious. I rounded the corners on my piece of card stock to create the "bucket" look. I ran a couple pieces of white cardstock thru the Cuttlebug using the tiny bubbles folder, then punched them out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. I think the golf balls look more realistic with them placed embossed side down. I sponged around the bucket with chestnut ink and around the golf balls lightly with a smokey gray ink. The handles were hard for me to figure out--I tried a few different looks are just settled on make them like this, two pieces of twill attached with silver mini brads. Well, that was a long one. I'm sure glad you visited me today! Happy weekend!
