Day 6 Blogaversary and Bowling???

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone!
I can't believe we are on day 6 already!
Wow the week is flying by and I'm almost
done with all my projects! Yeaaa for Me!
Since most of you have left comments about
having trouble with masculine cards I thought
I would post another one for ya today! For me...
they seem fairly easy... WHY? Well.... I have 3 boys
and a hubby and I also have 4 brothers and a FIL, etc ...
So, I think that really plays apart in making masculine cards...  
Guys are fairly simple people, so try not to over think a card for a guy...
Simple works best and can be very easy to come up with! :o)
Here's today's card to show you how
simple and yet perfect for a guy! :o)

I used my Imagine this time around to make this card!
Card stock, ink, Stamp - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Hopscotch (Imagine Cartridge)
Green Shadow - DCWV
Nifty Fifties - (Bowling pin/Ball) Cut @ 4 1/2"
(Shape #43) Cut @ 4 3/4" Flood Filled with the
Hopscotch DP

Here is the side view to show that I popped up
the Bowling Ball and the Red Strips on the Pin...
It came together fairly quickly and any guy would
just be happy to have a simple card like this! :o)

Now... onto the next part.... THE GIVEAWAY!!
