Fore, Three Two One

I've had a rough week -  First - I had taken 2 weeks family leave to care for Kent who had his right knee replaced on 4/30.  He's progressing quite nicely thank goodness!  But, on Wednesday of last week - I suddenly developed a horrible chest cold that got worse and worse -   I returned to work yesterday from my leave - but was so sick I had to see my doctor (I work at a hospital so my PCP was right there!).  Long story short - I have bronchitis and Influenza B (even though I got a flu shot - wrong flu apparently!)  So, after an overnight stay in the hospital - I'm home feeling pretty crappy but hopefully on the mend with the help of some meds.   And I have a card to share!
I needed a card for my BIL's birthday - and he's a golfer - so here's what I came up with.
Both of the sentiments (on front and inside) are from Rubbernecker Stamps, the golf cart and putting green stamps on the front and the putter inside are Amuse.  The die cut sun is from Lil Inker Designs and the Stitched Landscape die is from Poppy Stamps.  

I'm linking my card to Less is More - Hello Sunshine
