Challenge 11 - Congratulations and we have a DT call

The weeks just seem to whizz by - we're nearly all the way through June!  (oops. meant May!)

We had a great turn out for the last challenge, just under 100 entries.  Hopefully this challenge will prove just as popular.  We have a great challenge and a fabulous sponsor, Meljen Designs.  The theme is 'Congratulations' and our only rule is that we must have the word 'Congratulations' on the card.  The prize is 4 digis and here's a bit about the sponsor:

Meljen's Designs is a lovely stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical rubber and digital images inspired by her kids and family. Meljen's Designs has new releases along with a new challenge every Thursday, freebies every Monday and a Guest Designer each month at the Meljen's Designs Blog. Please visit the Meljen's Designs line of stamps at and browse and enjoy Melissa's wonderful images!

We got some great images to work with and here is the ideas from the Design Team:

Congratulations 2012


Aren't they wonderful.  I'm really proud of my design team, they're great to work with.  We currently need about 4 new members to join our happy team so if you're interested in working with us then enter the challenge and put DT after your name.  We don't have a lot of rules but you do need to be able to make a card for each fortnightly challenge, often using sponsor images.  Comment on the entries on a rota basis and take turns at posting the challenge and winner/top 3 posts.  I hope you will be encouraged to enter because it's great to see everyone's work although it is really hard to choose the best.

On the subject of winners, I am a bit behind but will post a round up of winners and prizes this evening.

Lastly, we need some challenge rules:

1. Your card must be new for this challenge and follow the theme set.
2. Your card must be for a man/boy.
3. Your post must include a link back to Cards for Men.

The challenge will run from now until midnight on 3rd June 2012.  Leave a link to your card (not just your blog) in the link list below.  If it's not there for some reason, leave a comment and I'll add you in before the draw.  Good luck!

    I'd also like to be considered for the DT!

    Thank you.

  10. I'm gambling a bit here :-) I have used the Norwegian word "gratulere" instead of congratulation on this card, so I'm not quite sure that my card qualifies for this challenge.

    Fingers crossed
