No Ribbons, No Glitter, No Flowers.....Oh My!


Masculine cards are really not my thing.  (No offense guys!) I am a very girly card maker......my heart does happy dances at the thought of adding glitter to anything and everything!  I love flowers.....I mean really love flowers. And ribbon?  Gotta have me some ribbon!  But on those boys' cards, there isn't a place for that. :(   But I battled through and created this card. You will notice there is no ribbon. No glitter. No flowers.
I used Crafty Secret's Golf Time Stamp set. 
There is however, Copic coloring and metal photo corners. ( I couldn't go completely embellishment free!)

And gems.  Not rhinestones mind you.  Let's just call them golfing gems.  They match the golfer's shorts.  ; )  
Cortney had her big game this past Saturday that benefits the Special Olympics.  It is an event that we look forward to every year.  It is so heart warming to see the athletes play, the cheerleaders cheer, and the families and friends that come out to support this cause.

Cortney and Patty right before the big game!
My girl.......feeling a wee bit tired after being up since 6 in the morning for her photo shoot prior......
This was their team picture taken a few days before the big game.
These girls have been together for a long time. 
Their love for each other is evident.  
They put on a cute half time show!

It is sure to make you smile!
Have a great day my friends!

Love the card. My son was a golfer in school.
The cheerleaders are so cute. I love how Courtney's friend always looks out for her. They have such a sweet friendship.
