Hello everyone I know this post is late but I thought I would just share with you a card I made for HERE COME THE BOYS blog two weeks ago. A bit late I hear you say..... but I have been having problems with my uploading pictures ...I couldn't work out how to do it because the layout has some how changed and as my knowledge of computing is extreamly limited!! I got stuck. Any way with that said I apologise and here is the card. Hopefully things will be back to normal now.

Time flies really fast and I haven't even started my christmas shopping yet! Thankyou to all who entered our challenge of Birthday's Only we had some great creations from you all. Now on to this weeks new challenge over at
#42 Anything Goes and Christmas
As everyone is probably very busy this time of year running around buying presants, working and partying too, we thought we would make our challenge to you a bit more stress free. So we would like to see any creation you have as long as it is for a man or boy. Here is my DT card. Also it's for my nephew
The shaped background is a Go Kreate die which think sets a lovely frame then Kotie image clear stamp coloured with promarkers. The Holly vine flourish just sets it off. Hop over to HERE COME THE BOYS and enter to win a last minute pressie from us.

Gosh i'm late!!!! So sorry i'm posting a day late because I have been busy making a birthday cake for my mums 70th, I haven't made her card yet!!. I had my card made and photographed but forgot to set it up on the blog.
Anyway we are starting another new challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS.
# 41 Birthdays Only
I know time is running fast now up to christmas but if you still have some male birthdays or spare time why not hop over to our challenge blog and enter.
I used my trusted cuttlebug and embossing folder to create the background paper and sanded it back to highlight the script pattern. Next I stamped sitting Edwin onto some card stock and placed a star Nestability over the image and cut out all in one. I coloured Edwin and distressed the star, then punched a smaller star with a 2" woodware punch and punched 3 small stars. I added a Personal impressions sentiment and matted the two stars to match the background. I finished up with adding a little knotted ribbon to tie it all together!
I hope you like.

Hi, definately getting colder now isn't it!
Well thanks to everyone who entered our Edwin only challenge we had some great entries. Now it's time to start a new challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS.
#39 Die Cuts and Punches
Well I pondered on what to do....we're sponsored this time by Bugaboo and of course we need to make a card for a man!
So I decided to use some punches as I haven't used these for a long time. The image is from Bugaboo and as you can see I got my trustied circle punches out and built a snowman. I blame this cold weather were having for inspiration!! Also I dug out a snowflake and Label punch too...the snowmans arms are snipped from a leaf punch! Why not join us and have a go yourself!! Remember to make the card for a male and to use Die cuts and or punches too!
I hope you like!

Two weeks has come around again and so it's time for a new challenge over at HERE COME THE BOYS.
First I would just like to say thankyou to everyone that joined us for the last 'Monochrome' challenge....fantastic entries! well done to all who won.
Now on to this weeks challenge.....we are looking for cards/creations that have only an Edwin image on. So if you have any stamps with Edwin we would love for you to join us and make something for a man or boy and enter our challenge today!
This is my DT card for the challenge why not hop on over to HERE COME THE BOYS and see what the other girls have created to give you inspiration!
This Edwin was stamped out when I was crafting at my friends house, the trees were not part of the stamp so I masked off Edwin and stamped behind him. Then I coloured and cut out another tree and attached it with some foam pads. I just had to use a little Antique Linen to soften the edges. So go on and have go. I hope you like.
