Challenge No 15 - A recipe for you

Wow, what a great set of Christmas cards we had from you all.  Before I go on, I want to thank Prairie Fairy for being such a great sponsor.  We always have such a great time using their images.  I'll be back later with the winner and top 3 for you.

On to this fortnight's challenge which is a recipe.  We want to see the following items on your cards:

1 image
2 papers
3 embellishments

That's the only requirements which should give you plenty of scope.  Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful One Stop Card Craft who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in their shop as the prize.  Please take a look over there as Shelley has some wonderful stuff.  You may be able to get something to help with the challenge as well.  If you do venture over, Shelley is offering all Cards For Men customers a 10% discount for the duration of our challenge.  All you need to do is quote the reference CFM2010 to get your discount.

Here's what Shelley had to say about One Stop Card Craft when I asked.

"At One Stop Card Crafts we have a big range of ever changing discount card making and cardmaking craft supplies. We are always adding to our range of craft supplies which are ideal for making handmade greeting cards, do-it-yourself invitations scrapbook pages, altered items and much more.  Our card making craft supplies include free UK postage* and our popular discount scheme and quick service means our customers keep coming back for more.  Our prices are very competitive and this makes us an ideal place to buy your cardmaking supplies online."

This week see's the first challenge for our new members, Alison, Kitty, Sarah and Mandy, so we now have double the inspiration for you.

Hopefully that's given you some ideas.  The challenge will close at midnight BST (British Summer Time) on 1st August 2010 and the rules are:

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.

Leave your name and a direct link to your entry (not just to your blog) below.  If the link tool is not there for some reason then leave the details in the comments and I'll add you in when I'm doing the draw.
