Birthday Hole in One for Paper Players #146

Hello stamping friends! This week at the Paper Players, our fabulous hostess Ann has a theme challenge for us: CAS (clean and simple) Masculine cards. I always need ideas for fun "guy cards" so I can't wait to see all of the ideas shared for this challenge.
I wanted to make a golf-themed card for a friend's birthday and this is what I came up with. It was simple and easy to put together and sometimes that is a good thing, right? Also, it is easy to mail and that is always a bonus. The only stamping on the card is the sentiment from the Banner Greetings set. I can't tell you how much I love that cloud embossing folder. It really added to the scene which (hopefully) resembles a golf course "green". I even busted out some old school decorative edge scissors for the grass. Whoa!  
Please join us this week over at the Paper Players! The challenge is open through Friday, May 24th at NOON (PDT). Please check out what the rest of the Design Team have created with this week's clean and simple challenge. 

Before I go, I wanted to share a photo of our new foster kitty. We are taking care of him for a local rescue and I just picked him up yesterday afternoon. His name is Triple and is a very special guy. He is a little shy at first but once he warms up, he does great. He is about 7 months old and came to the shelter needing to have one of his front legs amputated. He's still adjusting in his private room here and hasn't met the rest of the crew yet. 

Have a HAPPY day today! :)
