OCL Golfin' Gramps ~ Armadillo

Look at Golfin' Gramps by Our Craft Lounge, isn't he cute?
I love that we have a gramps to go with granny now, think of the possibilities!
Grandparents cards, mother and fathers day cards, humorous cards and all the other stamps that come with the Granny & Gramps sets, my mind is spinning!

I paper pieced his clothes and the ground on the tag. Gramps is sportin' a goatee Smiley from I used Platinum Sparkly Fluff for that and his hair. His clubs have Glossy Accents on them for some shine. Everything is distressed (of course) with Vintage Photo ink and a blender tool. I added a few stitches here and there with linen thread.
I made the tag to attach to the box of golf balls, a cute gift for a golfer friend!
You could even use granny as a lady golfer, just use the accessorie stamps from this set with her, how cute would that be?
Supplies: Stamps - OCL Golfin' Gramps, SU! Itty Bitty splatter background. Paper - GP white, Cosmo Cricket Fleurtise, tag.

This little critter was in the flower bed at work yesterday. I was right on top of him with my camera and he could care less, he wasn't afraid at all. He was just rooting around for something to eat. Armadillo's came into AR. a few years ago, I think I heard they came in from OK. They ar e related to anteaters. He's so ugly, he's kinda cute, look at his little pink nose! I've never got to see one this close up, usually they are dead on the side of the road.

Funky looking little dude, huh?
I hope you have a great day!

LOL!Here in NW AR, we have 2 kinds. I think that one is the "Texas 9 Banded". I don't know what the other kind is named, but it is as big as a basketball, and when they dig in my yard, I shoo them out! I have the big one at my house, but I see a lot of the 9 Banded on the roadside DAY-YUD! LOL
LOVE your blog.
