Hello...

Holy cow, the days are flying by. We're well into summer, wish it could last forever. Not much creativity happening during these hot days. I'd rather be out in the pool, enjoying the girls while they still want to spend time with me! :)

I did get to play with CAS-ual Fridays this week. The challenge is to make a 'manly' card using kraft paper.

I started off with this one:

But I wasn't sure it was masculine enough...

So I made another one...

Both really simple...seems to be my speed these days.

The tree stamp is from Hampton Arts, Happy Birthday sticker is from SRM, newsprint paper is from SU, polka dot is from Echo Park. The tag punch out in the second card is old from 3 Bugs in a Rug, brad is really old from Foof-a-La, stamp sentiment is from Studio G.

Thanks so much for dropping by. hope you're having a wonderful summer.

These are both fantastic masculine cards in my opinion. Great color choices with the kraft. Thank you so much for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

Both are great masculine cards but my favorite is the first one.

I like your cards - that was a fun challenge. I would rather be in the pool with my girls too - but they grew up so enjoy yours while you can.
