Why do I agonize over creating cards?

I spent a long time on this card - more on thinking than doing.

I think I overthink when it comes to card making, and I lose a lot of time.

So I knew I wanted to use a transparency. What I ended up doing was using my digital scrapbooking to print DAD and the golf clubs on the transparency, then the Cricut to cut Happy Birthday for the inside. It actually came out pretty nice, I think. Hope Dad likes it. Smile

I used my tape runner on the extra inch of transparency that's folded over. I put a photo album on it for over an hour to help the fold close a little better. it doesn't want to stay folded at all!

My dad really liked it - we gave it to him this morning since they're only staying for a little bit. Smile

Karen - seriously, let me know, and if there's enough time I can make it and send it to you.

I don't know why you worry, Gwen! Your cards are ALWAYS amazing and this is no exception.

Glad your Dad liked it too.

Best,
