Cards for men challenge

Hi all

Im back after a week in Minehead, curtesy of the Sun newspaper, where the weather was glorious, even if the wind was chilly. Not a lot of craft shops to browse around though. But we did have a pit stop at Street, on the way down, and a trip out everyday, Thursday we had breakfast in Lynmouth, and a walk around the village, no energy to walk up to waters meet though.

We watched the news of the volcanic ash cloud with some concern, as we are due to fly out to Majorca on the 5th of May, it looks ok at the moment, and I just hope it don't kick off again.

Ida set a difficult challenge this week to create a background using only Promarkers.

I started by picking a colour to mount the image on, So I used Spice, as this was the colour I used on the Teddy.

The main background is Lemon, and Pear green wobbly stripes, The small piece is lemon and Pear green polka dot, and I edged all the card using Spice.

Prima flowers, Brad from stash, flower hole punch, which is also coloured spice, and gems from stash.

Cards for Men challenge 8

Im having to upload this early this morning, as I have an eye test booked for 9am.

The challenge for this week is any card other than a bifold.

Our sponsors this week are Fresh brewed designs all created by Heather who offers a wide range of images from coffee, to cute and inspirational.

Heather very kindly let the design team choose any one of her images, and there are over 200 to choose from. I chose this image for my card, With 5 Grandsons, who all love bugs and creatures. They love nothing better than going on a bug hunt with Nanna, armed with a plastic box, and a pair of disposable gloves they collect as many different ones as possible, and then look in the book to see what they are. Yuk I hear you say. Not the best pastime I know, but the boys love it, and its great to be on the same level as them "for a while at least." This card is for Reece to send his Grandad on his birthday.
