Nothing like getting inspiration for a design team member of the Global Design Project.  This weekend I spotted the #GDP240 challenge and was totally inspired by Kerstin Kreis card with all the multi colored circles of Designer Series Paper, her stapled banner and my favorite sentiment stamp set from the January - June 2020 Mini Catalog that unfortunately is not carrying over to the new annual catalog.

So here's my CAS(e) of Kerstin's card.  
Thanks so much for the inspiration, Kerstin!

The minute I saw the dots I was picturing golf balls!  Growing up with my dad and brother being golfers, it was only natural for me to fall in love with the sport... the only thing is I cannot play the game very well and the men in my life only laughed and didn't have the patience to teach me the sport.  So I followed them around for countless hours and was their best caddie ever!  I could definitely advise them which clubs to hit and confirm the lie of the holes and greens.  If you don't believe me then you'll just to ask them yourself!  **WINK**

I did take golf as college credit for Physical Education so that was where I finally learned how to swing and why I am not a golfer!  My writing hand and wrist just couldn't handle the strength that was involved in the grip and after hours of hitting practice balls, I never felt confident enough to hit the course.  So caddy and biggest fan I will forever be!!!

The colors of the golfer's attire (colored with Blends) were inspired by one of my favorite golf outfits that I remember from days gone by of my dad wearing...  he always had certain color combinations that he wore on tournament days and this one was one of my favorites.  The tree line and sunset (stamped and sponged) is also a memory from years gone by when we as a family would go out and my dad and brother would hit shag balls at the practice range.  We also had many nightly family walks along the course as my dad and brother would play against each other.  Such wonderful memories that delighted every sense and will be forever cherished.  And, the colorful tees (die cut and colored with Blends) are memories of all the tees that I would see Daddy grab from his golf bag and stick them in his pants pocket for the golf rounds.  Later on at home, I would always remember finding emptied pocket contents filled with coins, tees and turf picks.  And the grouping of clubs (die cut and colored with Blends) is also a memory of the shiny clubs that Daddy lovingly washed before each tournament and "dawg fight" with his buddies!

So this card for all the golfers out there that have missed playing on the course chasing those little white balls during this time of social distancing.  I hope that many of you are at least able to go somewhere and enjoy the feel of the club between your hands as you practice your swings and follow the bounces of the balls off in the distance on some practice ranges.  Most golf courses, at least here where I live, are slowly beginning to re-open.  What joy, right?!?    

Me and my parents at the Masters! April 2007 | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie
April 2007

Who knows how long it will be before we will again hear the hush of the crowds, the swish of the club, the whiz of the ball as it flies through the air and the plink of the ball as it falls into the cup.  But please for this Masters loving family, please let it be soon!

I hope that this card has inspired to consider CAS(e)ing someone's card...  sometimes a design can just trigger some ideas for you and get your creativity rolling.  And while you're at it, don't forget to check out the weekly challenges over at the Global Design Project.  

Have a blessed day!
