Retiree/Golfer/Cards for Heroes

This old duffer is just great, isn't he? I'm hoping some hero overseas will have a relative he/she can send him to, along with a treasured handwritten note letting the recipient not only know they're thought of, but that the sender is doing well!
My sweet BBGF Gwen gave me this stamped image when she came to my house for our Designing Divas group recently. I'd love to give stamp credit, but I don't have that information, nor do I have any for the papers I used, as all are from the stacks I've had for years. I just remember thinking this striped paper would be great some day for a guy card. I sanded it to distress it & like the way it turned out.
I have a couple other cards I'm anxiously waiting to post here as soon as I know they've been received by the ladies I've forwarded them to -- hurry up USPS!!! ;-)
Embellishments: Generals Watercolor Pencils; small brads

Hey, Gwen, I'm replying since your email is MIA! You can so have that card for Sat.; all you gotta do is stamp me another golfer! I have only 1 sheet of that paper (of course), but it's 12x12, so we can do more cards! My coloring doesn't come close to yours, but I do love him!
Soooo glad you got your surprise today!!! ;-) So fun to do and you are so welcome!!!
