Dorthy’s Notes: *I used Glasses, Staches & Ties paper pack by the Paper Studio (This is great for manly stuff!) This card has been “floating” around for lots of years. Kudos to whoever created it!!! **The Score Pal makes folding and creasing easy, but if you can’t beg borrow or steal one then you can do it the old fashioned way!
