Bowling Card Let the good times ROLL

Made this using the CTMH Strike Up Some Fun stamp set. Also, used Happiest Place pattern cardstock black with silver stars. The stamp set and cardstock are available.

When I graduated from college in FL (BS in Computer Science) and had my first job in the computer software industry I joined the company's bowling team. Played for several years. Whe I left the company I remained with the league and the girl that organized the league placed me on a team with a guy who now is my husband. One of the games he bet me that if I won he would take me to out to eat and if I lost I had to pay. Well, I won the game and after a couple years we became engaged & married.

Photographed card with my bowling ball ( can you see my initials on the ball?) that I have kept all these years.

For My Beautiful Friend CTMH Card

Made this using the CTMH July Stamp of the Month, For My Beautiful Friend, that is available thru end of day today 7/31.

The girl image reminds me of when I was younger and wore white socks with black & white saddle shoes to Catholic elementary school.

Had a mishap where the left edge of white cardstock had a raw edge when trimmed and did not notice until I had assembled the card so some washi tape which matches the flower theme came into play.
