For the Boys

Hello everyone! It's time for another Ink Spot design team challenge! Our host this time is Joy and she chose the theme.....Masculine. I think most crafters find masculine projects to a bit more difficult. I hope we give you a bit of inspiration and a chuckle.  Joy used No Pain, No Gain from CHF and Soccer Riley for her project. Check it out:

Look at all of the goodness that the rest of the design team came up with!

If you haven't signed up for the stamp club you're moosing out! Seriously, I've heard a few times from members who wish they had signed up from the beginning as they are hooked! Treat yourself and your funny bone, you'll be glad you did. 

Thanks for stopping by!
