This week it is Carols turn to set our challenge and what a wonderful one too. Carol would like to see a Mans /Boys card.

So lets see you all joining in i am sure you can find a man to give a card to.
This week we are sponsored by Susie at Die Cut Dreams.
Here is alittle about her
"Hi, my name is Susie. I'm in my early 40's, Mum to 2 lovely teenage sons Reid & Woody and wife to my best friend Garry.
I have been crafting since 2005 when the bug bit me after watching a craft channel on TV one afternoon.
I now run my own design die cut business called Die Cut Dreams ( ) where I sell my own design die cuts and other custom designer die cuts plus lots of crafty goodies.
I love most types of paper crafting, and often wonder what I did with all my time before I started crafting and blogging ...... There just isn't enough hours in the day as I'm totally addicted to all things crafty and couldn't imagine life without craft and my blog
So pop on over to the challenge blog and see what wonderful creations the team has made and this weeks prize.
Well I guess you would like to see my card i made for this week challenge

I have use a Lili of the Valley stamp and coloured it in soft colours with my promarkers. I went for the pastel tones to give a relaxed and sleep/ dreamy feel to this. Clean lines for a mascaline card. Coloured with my promarkers and added a few matching buttons from my stash. A touch of bling with the papermanina square gems to reflex the straight lines. cuttlebugged the card in the right hand side. Stamped a simple sentiment. Papers are blue but for some reason shows bit more purple must be the sunshine
I will be entering this into the following challenges
