Creative Card: "You're Tee-rific"

I have been in a creative "funk" since I've been home from Florida...I have diagnosed myself with "vacation hangover."  I don't think it's too serious.  Hopefully I will make a full recovery...QUICKLY!!!  I finally had an idea to do a tie-dye shirt using my brand new Watercolor Pencils and I figured I better take advantage of a little creative break through.  :)  

This card features one of the brand new sentiments from the Scrappy Mom's "For the Boys" set.  This set is available for pre-order HERE!  I know that the "tee-riffic" is supposed to be golf related, but I don't have any golf related images to use...so I turned a seemingly sport related sentiment into one that could be suitable for non-sporty types.  (I would definitely fall into this category.)  I had planned on videoing a how-to for the watercolor pencils, but my camera is acting up.  Let's hope that this is just a little hiccup because it's a fairly new camera...please let it be a little hiccup.  Maybe my camera is depressed...it would probably rather be taking pictures like this:

Playing on the beach...sigh.
