Challenge No. 2

So here we are with our second challenge.  Last month's challenge was a great hit and the entries we had and comments were very encouraging.  This month's theme is 'New' which can be interpreted as 'New Year', 'New Job', 'New Home', 'New Baby' to name a few.

The prize this month is Crafters Companion CD Rom - Male Occupations which is brand new and full of lots of great designs.


So here we have our Design Team examples to give you some inspiration.  I'm sure you'll agree that they are wonderful and hope that you'll take the time to have a look at their blogs were you'll find more details of how they made them.
















Good Luck everyone.  The challenge will run until January 14th 2010 and here are a few rules:

1. The card must be for a man/boy.
2. You need to follow the theme/sketch that is set.
3. It must be a new card.

That's all, I don't mind if you combine challenges with other blogs or anything like that.  I haven't been able to sort out a 'Mr Linky' so please just leave a comment on this post with a direct link to your entry.

    What a great challenge.
    I have never done this before, but a new year has new starts.
    So I give it a go.
    I do not know how I can put the link here so you get directly to it. But I hope it is okay so.
