We vacation on Captiva Island every summer, and our condo is in the middle of a golf course overlooking the ocean. When I think of fun in the sun for summer I think of ocean-side golf courses, so I am submitting this to the Shabby Tea Room Week #14 Fun in the Sun Challenge. I am also submitting this card for Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge #43, to create a masculine card. So here is my fun-in-the-sun masculine card, inspired by the movie, with argyle!
My Dad says golf is a game that was invented to keep you humble. You are always striving to surpass your own past performances and struggling to do better. That is a pretty good metaphor for life, isn't it, always striving to become a better, wiser, and hopefully kinder person?
I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of The Greatest Game Ever Played, and I hope it will encourage you to watch this movie yourself. I am not a huge golf fan but I love this movie - it is worth watching just to see his sidekick ten-year-old caddy! If you liked Bagger Vance you will probably like this movie - the main character reminds me so much of the little boy in Bagger Vance, only grown up a bit more but still golfing-mad!
