Well, you all have once again knocked our socks off with your amazing projects from last week’s Getting Edgy Challenge – OH EM GEE!! I think you’re really going to love this week’s challenge, too.
This week’s challenge is to create a MASCULINE clean and simple card, and use Kraft cardstock in your design. Easy enough, right?!
Our sponsor is the uber cool and extremely generous Kraft Outlet! They’ve not only provided an amazing prize to this week’s T.G.I.F Club Winner (you’ll have to drop by the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Blog to find out what it is), but they’ve also offered you, our fabulous challenge players, 15% off any purchase if you use the discount code CASUAL (discount good until 7/6/11 at 11:59 PM EST). How nice is that?! Thank you, Kraft Outlet!!
I loves me some Kraft cardstock – there’s something about it’s versatility that makes creating so easy! Hubby had asked me to create some cards for his teammates in a recent golf tournament, so I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to ink up A Muse Studio’s Swingin’ Day. Check out that ginormous golf ball!! If only the balls were really that big, I might be able to actually hit one every now and then! LOL
One of hubby’s teammates was a lady. I couldn’t leave her out, right?! So I used the exact same layout and created a lady golfer card. I think I like the girl one the best, but I’m pretty happy with how they both came out.

I can hardly wait to see what you all come up with for this week’s challenge. I actually have another post that will go live in a few hours – so I hope you’ll come on back to see what it’s all about. It’ll be worth it – I promise!! In the meantime, thanks so much for your sweet comments. They always make my day a “swingin’” one!
