Paper Players 168


Howdy, partners!  Today’s Paper Players challenge is brought to you by me!  And here it is:


Yep, a CAS masculine birthday challenge!  I have several birthdays coming up, so this will help me get started!  I chose a Baked Brown Sugar base and added a stitched mat diecut from some Cosmo Cricket Wanted paper:

I just love those little cowboys bustin’ broncs on that paper!  I added a sentiment from a retired SU set called Afterthoughts, along with a diecut cowboy boot and a banner from SU’s burlap trim:


One little brad is my only other embellishment!  Sometimes it takes discipline not to add a bunch of other stuff to one’s card, right?! 

Now, let’s see what you can come up with for this challenge—we all need masculine cards, so let this be your starting point!  Share it with us and be sure to check out the other designers’ creations as well:
DH is slowly working on his garage…and Cassidy turned it into her own little playroom; she made a (wooden) cake and put it in the “oven”:


Then she took it out and laid it on the “counter”:


And served a piece to Grampy!


Yum!  The power of imagination!  Enjoy your day!

  1. Fantastic masculine card and love that CC paper you used. It was one of my favorite collections awhile back.

  2. Handsome card LeAnne. I love the boot too. That paper is darling too. Have a great day. Still putting things away.

  3. Great man card. The die cut boot and burlap on that background paper is perfect. I love her imagination. It's so nice to see a child actually play and think for herself. She is so cute!

  4. Really LOVE your masculine design LeAnne! I am always in need of I don't think it will be a problem to play along! :)

  5. Yeehaw, this is one fabulous CAS masculine card LeAnne! Paper, boot and burlap it all fits together like chili 'n' beans! Great challenge!

  6. Wow!! Terrific masculine CAS card and love that little cowboy boot. Also, your granddaughter looks adorable helping grandpa.

  7. Absolutely perfect guy card. That little boot is terrific.

  8. Eeeek I just love this cowboy paper, sorta hoard mine! GREAT guy card. Love the pics of your little baker ;)

  9. What a great western themed card! Love the patterned paper, the adorable boot and the burlap, and they all work perfectly together!

  10. This card is gorgeous! If a masculine card can be gorgeous...?! Well, this one is anyway! It's really hard not to stick a bunch of pearls or something on a male card isn't it, I don't feel like it's finished until it's got a rhinestone! This looks perfectly complete though :)

  11. Absolutely adorable, LeAnne! I LOVE this DSP!
