Challenge 1 - Men at Work

Welcome back to our fortnightly challenges, I hope you all had a lovely break.  Our challenge this time is 'Men at Work' which should hopefully get your ideas flowing.  We were due to be sponsored by The Stamping Boutique but unfortunately they have closed.  They were one of our first sponsors and have regualrly supported Cards for Men over the last three years.  I'm really going to miss them and I'm sure they will be widely missed in the crafting community.

Stepping in at the last minute was my good friend, Carole, who is a Stampin Up demonstrator.

I am an Independent Stampin Up! Demonstrator in Lancashire & surrounding areas. I teach large and small scrapbooking and craft classes. I can arrange parties in your home for crafting and non-crafting friends to suit your requirements, and where everyone is guaranteed to have a great time !  I also run a crop in the Rochdale area. Please contact me for more details at xx

The prize up for grabs is two full size ink pads from Stampin Up.  The winner will get to choose between Subtles, Brights and Regals.

Now for some inspiration from my DT which is now back to full compliment due to the addition of Erin and Viv who joined us for the Christmas Event.  Here's what they all came up with:




Being fabulous is hard work 2013

Hopefully you're all fired up and ready for a challenge.  Now for the rules:
1. Your card must be new for this challenge and follow the theme set.
2. Your card must be for a Man or a Boy.
3. Your blog post must mention Cards for Men contain a link back to the challenge.
The challenge will run from now until midnight(GMT) on 20 January 2013.  Leave a link to your post (not just your blog) in the link list below.  If the linky is not there for some reason, leave a comment and I'll add you in before the draw.  Good luck.
