Candy Time!

I noticed my visitors passed 1,000 recently so I thought I'd run a candy giveaway.

The prize up for grabs is a Popcorn Bear CDRom (the Mens one of course) and I'm going to keep the candy open until my middle son's birthday which is 26th November. I'm currently working on my card for him and here's a sneak preview of my practice colouring....

It's a Mo Manning image ( I just love her work) and if the winning entry correctly names the image I've used, I'll throw in a surprise.

So what do you have to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post.
2. Post about my candy on your blog or in your sidebar.
3. Become a follower if you're not already.

Good luck everyone, I'll draw the winner on 27th November 2009 and post it here.


  1. Fab candy Donna.. I have added a link in my side bar and am already a follower. Can't wait to see what you are planning for the challenges. Its always so hard to make men's cards, so it will be great to get some inspiration.
    hugs rozzy xx

  2. Great candy.... I will add a link to my side bar. I have notice you have changed it to Cards for Men before you had Cards for men and boys.

  3. Oh what a wonderful giveaway...I just love that bear. I have added you to my sidebar. Thanks for the chance.

  4. Donna the image you are using from Mo Manning is called "Eli and Butch going for a drive". Love that images also. Mo does not make any images I do not like.

  5. What a great giveaway Donna! I would love to win this CDRom. The Popcorn the Bear images are so cute! And I could always use some images for boys/men's cards! I added the picture and a link in my sidebar. And I also posted about your giveaway on my blog here. Thanks for the chance!!!!


  6. Wow Donna it looks as though its going to be a stunner, carnt wait to start on my card for your son, but you are going to have to tell me how old he is so I can pretty much gadge the sort of thing he might like. Take care with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxxxx And congratulations on achieving 1000 hits.

  7. Hi Donna

  21. Hi Donna

    Congratulations for passing 1000 visitors!
    It's really fantastic you're started a blog for only Mens Cards.
    It's nice to see something is only making mens cards, because it seems difficult to making them and we can get some ideas then on this blog.
    You're giving a great candy away, so I've put you're candy into the sidebar of my blog and became one of you're followers!

    Thanks for the chance to win!
